If you are a professional cricket player, there are risks associated with your sport that may cause severe injury. The most common types of injury inflicted upon professional cricket players include:
- Ligament damage
- Open wounds
Many injuries associated with playing cricket involve the hands, muscles, upper body and fingers. It is also worth bearing in mind that cricket is played during hot weather over a long period of time, so heat stress and sun stroke are additional risks. Cricket players often suffer from injuries to their face, hands and fingers (due to being hit by the ball). Bowlers are also prone to muscular strain and overuse of the back and shoulder muscles. Such injuries often require sessions of physiotherapy.
