The association between prescribed and measured delivery intensity in elite male cricket fast bowlers

      Background: A common practice among sport scientists is to prescribe a targeted training load for each training session. Loads captured in training should ideally align with what was prescribed to ensure healthy adaptations. Otherwise, maladaptations to training may occur, predisposing the athlete to overreaching, burnout, illness, or injury. Most workload research in cricket fast bowling has not measured the intensity of a delivery; a key component in profiling the demand of an activity. Elite fast bowlers in Victoria have access to instantaneous feedback on their bowling speed during indoor training that may help them adhere to a prescribed delivery intensity throughout a session. Therefore, the purpose of this investigation was to determine the association between prescribed and measured delivery intensity operationalised as bowling speed.
