Thus the aim of this study was to determine the role of muscular endurance and running speed among cricket players. 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 endurance and running speed.
