Despite the popularity of cricket, there is a relative lack of strength and conditioning research into position-specific roles. Fast bowlers have the highest workloads, injury rates and shortest career spans in comparison to other positions. This article reviews the demands placed on fast bowlers, discusses causes of injury, and details the strength and conditioning needs of fast bowlers.
