SA cricketers cramping up?

Even the most professional cricket players suffer from cramps. But why- are they unfit? Is it the heat? What could be the problem?

Lower back injuries

Lower back injuries include stress fractures, particularly in adolescent fast bowlers. Other areas that could be damaged include the disc, facet joint or surrounding soft tissue.

Abdominal injuries

As is the case with chest injuries, injuries may also occur when a ball travelling at a high speed hits the abdomen.

Upper leg injuries

Cricket involves a lot of sudden, explosive stop/start movements and rapid changes of direction. The result is that the hamstring tendons are often strained.
