esterday I mentioned some standards for cricketers strength. I have also had a request for how fast a cricketer should be so I'm borrowing some norms from the ECB:
Adult Cricketer Speed Test
Run three runs on a normal length cricket pitch with a bat but no other equipment (pads, gloves etc.). Have someone with a stopwatch time you.
- Poor: Greater than 10.7 seconds
- Good: 9.7-10.2 seconds
- Excellent: Less than 9.2 seconds
Seeing as the weather is improving outside, get out there and tell me your best times!
