Sports Imagery Ability was assessed by Sports Imagery Questionnaire (SIQ) which was developed by Craig R Hall, Diane E Steven and Allan Paivio in the year of 1998. One-way analysis of variance (one-way ANOVA) indicated that there were significant differences in Sports Imagery Ability between the cricket players of different age level categories. Significant differences also found in regard of their performance on the various Sports Imagery subscales.
