Abstract: The purpose of the study was to compare the muscular strength of knee flexors and extensors between bowlers, batsman and wicketkeepers. The fifteen (five batsmen, five bowler and five wicket-keeper) male university cricketers were selected for the study (Mean ± SD; subject age 22.6 ±1.72 years; body mass 64.4±6.2 kg; height 1.69±0.75m). All the tests of the variables were conducted on the CSMI isokinetic machine. In order to establish the significance difference among the three groups the one way of analysis of variance was employed and level of significance was set at 0.05. The test was administrated at Exercise physiology laboratory of LNIPE Gwalior. The findings indicated that no significant difference was found in muscular strength of knee flexion and knee extension muscle group between batsman, bowler and wicket-keeper.
