This study was undertaken to investigate the physiological profiles of club cricketers and their cardiac responses to on-field performances during 50 over cricket matches. participants were recruited from Swansea Cricket Club for the study. lnitial physiological profile measurements were collected, incorporating both anthropometrical (body mass, height, body fat percentage) and performance variables (leg power, flexibility, agility, speed, muscular endurance and cardiovascular endurance). Subsequently, the participants' heart rates were recorded throughout the duration of both innings of eight, 50 over matches. Additionally, heart rate measurements were recorded during training sessions, in a bid to reveal any notabte differences in exercise intensities between the two performance environments. Heart rate data was analysed on a descriptive level, whilst the nonparametric, physiological profite data was analysed using the Mann Whitney U Test and/or Kruskal-Wallis ANOVA. The evidence accrued in this study is arguably significant, owing to the innovative data collection within a competitive environment. ln comparison with training data, the research indicates the need for the tested cohort to address their training methods to replicate match-play intensities. Additionally, national physiological profiling research is recommended to aid injury prevention and increase performance levels.
