To obtain data, the investigators had selected For the purpose of present study, One Hundred Seventy Seven (N=177), Male District, State and National Level Cricket Players between the age group of 21-25 years (Mean ± SD: age 22.89±1.76 years, height 176.04±4.18 cm, body mass 73.76±4.63 kg) were selected. The subjects were purposively assigned into three groups: Group-A: District Level Cricket Players (n1=80); Group-B: State Level Cricket Players (n2=65); Group-C: National Level Cricket Players (n3=32). The Statistical Package for the Social Sciences (SPSS) version 14.0 was used for all analyses. In all the analyses, the 5% critical level (p<0.05) was considered to indicate statistical significance. The differences in the mean of each group for selected variable were tested for the significance of difference by One-way Analysis of Variance (ANOVA). For further analysis Post-Hoc Test (Scheffe’s Test) was applied. It is concluded from the above findings that significant differences were found among district, state and national level cricket players on the sub-variables; muscular strength, muscular power.
