Twenty20 vs Test Match Injuries


Is the injury profile different between one day international matches, Twenty20 matches and Test matches?

"When we had Test and one day cricket only, I used to think the injuries were pretty similar, but Twenty/20 has gone to the other extreme of Test matches. I now am confident we are going to be able to demonstrate a different injury profile between the different types of cricket. In particular, injuries of an ‘overuse’ nature (which are the bane of fast bowlers) are much more likely to be caused by bowling in Test and other first class matches, because of the higher match workloads. What we are just starting to appreciate is that the overuse injury doesn’t necessarily happen at the time of the overuse – perhaps you may break down a few weeks later and it could even be whilst playing a different form of the game. The apparently high rates of bowling injuries in Australian one day internationals that we have seen in the past may be artefact from the fact that players have usually just come off a long Test series. When you have a long stretch of one day internationals without Tests such as in a World Cup, the bowling injury rate comes down substantially. Although we have just started seeing dedicated Twenty/20 competitions, I am confident that there will be fewer bowling injuries than we have seen in the longer forms of cricket. Given that most commentators consider that Twenty/20 is a batsman’s game, it will be pleasing if we see the bowlers get lower injury rates as a result. There may be a slight reverse effect for the batsmen and fielders in that the intensity of play is so high that average running speed is higher. I suppose it is like the difference in injury profile between sprinters and distance runners.

"The other factor is that the players all are heading towards having a 12 month season of cricket being available for them to play, which will create its own problems. The Indian Premier League shows that human nature on both sides (the administrators and most of the players) means that if you can make more money playing more cricket, then the extra games will happen."
