Abstract

Shoulder injuries are common in sports that involve throwing, studies have shown that a shoulder intervention program for handball players can be effective in treating shoulder injuries (Clarsen et al., 2014; Andersson et al., 2016). However, limited studies have examined whether these interventions are applicable to other sports of similar biomechanical nature. Cricket was found to be a sport with substantial shoulder injury in terms of incidence and severity (Finch et al., 1999; Soomro et al., 2018). The purpose of this study is to investigate the effect of a handball intervention program for the risk factors of shoulder injuries on cricket players.
