Cricket injuries can be different depending on the position played. Bowlers tend to suffer the most injuries due to both the repetitive motion and the high forces used. Fielders may also suffer shoulder or elbow overuse injuries. Batsmen tend to be well protected and so impact injuries from the ball are rare. The wicket keeper is more likely to suffer such an injury!

Injuries such as rotator cuff tears and impingement syndromes, as well as medial ligament injuries at the elbow are most likely to occur.

Here we cover the 6 most common injuries in detail, as well as information on injury prevention, including warming-up thoroughly and wearing suitable protective equipment.
