Abhishek Singh and Ravi Sharma
The aim of the study was to compare the selected physical variables between university and non-university participants in cricket. For the purpose of the study, 21 participants (11 inter-university and 10 non-universities) of age 18-24 years were selected from cricket match practice group of Lakshmibai National Institute of Physical Education, Gwalior (M.P). The parameters examined speed, abdominal strength, agility, flexibility. The statistical analysis of the result and comparison of the two groups showed a statistically significant difference in speed, abdominal strength and agility. There were difference in the flexibility, but the differences were not statistically significant. The results suggest that either years of specific physical conditioning and training or the selection of individuals for the inter-university team who possess more desirable characteristics as a consequence of genetic endowment, plays a significant role in the preparation of inter-university team.
