AbstractBackground: Anthropometric scales express the physical potential of football players and can be used to compare them with other sports. Anthropometric proportions play a key role in cricket.
Aims and Objectives: To comparison of various anthropometric parameters in cricket and football players.
Material and Methods: The present research was carried out in the Sports Physiology Laboratory of the Department of Physiology. The period of the study from December 2012 to November 2014 and the form of study is not followed up. Test analysis is conducted to conduct a comparative study of anthropometric parameters in cricket and football players.
Results: We did a test sample with 60 subjects (30 cricket players and 30 football players). The average value of the height of football players is more than that of cricketers. The average weight value of cricket players is higher than that of football players. BMI, percent body fat, percent lean body weight, mid-upper arm circumference, mid-upper arm area, corrected mid-upper arm muscle area, arm fat index, is substantially higher in Cricket players than in Football players.
Conclusion: In our research, we notice that, in our cricket and football players, the majority of anthropometric parameters such as height, weight, percent lean body mass, mid-upper arm diameter, mid-upper arm area, and corrected mid-upper arm muscle area are lagging when compared to international cricketers and football players.
