How to warm up for cricket: The video

This 2 minute video has been created to help with your cricket warm ups. You can see more on warming up for cricket here and here.


It's worth noting there are many more warm up exercises you could do before going out onto the pitch. This is just a selection that hopefully gives you the idea that you move from walking movements up to full sprints by the end. The idea is to increase your heart rate, get your nervous system ready for the first ball and improve the range of motion of your joints (especially hips and shoulders). After a 10-15 minute warm up like this you should be ready to practice some real cricket skills like throwing, catching, batting and bowling.
