|Abstract: ||The aim of this paper was to examine differences in delivery characteristics and the resulting response exhibited by ten elite
cricket batsmen when hitting repeated front foot drives against three different ball delivery methods; a bowling machine, a
Sidearm™ ball thrower and a bowler. Synchronous three-dimensional Vicon motion capture technology and high-speed video
were used to track batsman, bat and ball motion, and a range of discrete timing and kinematic variables were extracted from the
resulting biomechanical model. Results showed significant differences in speed and ball release-to-impact time between the
three delivery methods, thus questioning the validity of the bowling machine and Sidearm™ in the way they are currently used
as true representations of batting against a real life bowler. Findings from the timing and kinematics of the subjects’
movements suggest a different technical response is also exhibited when facing the different delivery methods; for example
batters were found to initiate movement earlier and have a lower maximum bat speed against the bowling machine, but initiate
and complete their front foot stride earlier as well as moving their COM further forward in the Sidearm™ trials.
