Abstract:

This study set out to do a thorough investigation of fast bowling performance among cricket players at the district, university, and state levels. For this study, 150 male cricket players were chosen, 50 from each level. By examining each cricket player's bowling statistics from the previous two competitive seasons, their performance was evaluated. The analysis elements that were taken into consideration were the economy rate, strike rate, bowling average, and number of wickets taken. According to the study's findings, state-level cricketers averaged 22.6 wickets per season, more than any other level of cricketer. University-level players came in second with 16.8 wickets per season and district-level players with 11.2 wickets per season. Cricketers at the state level had the lowest bowling average (15.3 runs per wicket), followed by players at the university level (19.7 runs per wicket) and district level (23.1 runs per wicket). The lowest economy rate was recorded by district cricketers, who averaged 5.1 runs per over. University cricketers and state cricketers followed with averages of 5.5 and 6.2 runs per over, respectively. Last but not least, state-level cricketers had the greatest strike rate at 28.4 balls per wicket. University-level players came in second with 32.9 balls per wicket, and district-level players with 38.2 balls per wicket. To sum up, this research offers a thorough examination of fast bowling performance at the district, university, and state levels among cricket players According to the data, district-level cricketers perform the lowest, and state-level cricketers perform at the greatest level. These results can be used to pinpoint gifted cricket players and develop youth training plans that will help them perform better.
