Purpose: The purpose of this study was to analyze and compare the front foot of drive hitting cricket hit the ball to boundary between Thailand women’s cricket team and U-19 Thailand women’s cricket team.
Methods: The participants were nineteen cricket female player from cricket association of Thailand. The participants were purposively sampling and divided into groups. The first group was Thailand women’s cricket team. (n=9) The second group was U-19 Thailand women’s cricket team. (n=9). Five markers were placed on the bat and two markers were placed over the body of participants. The participants were asked to hit 30 balls to boundary by front foot of drive hitting cricket. The hit with longest distance of each participants was selected to be analyzed using Launch monitor from FlightScope and 9 cameras QUALISYS OQUS 7+ Series. Ball distance, ball speed, ball reflection angle, bat centre of mass to centre of ASIS and bat centre of mass height were calculated by Qualisys Track Manager and mevo baseball program. The obtained kinematic data were compared “t” by Independent t-test, using a significant different level at 0.5.
Result: Comparing between two group of participants, Thailand women’s cricket team showed significant increase in ball distance, ball reflection angle and bat centre of mass to centre of ASIS more than U-19 Thailand wome’s cricket team (p<0.05). There were no significant in ball speed and bat centre of mass height between Thailand women’s cricket team and U-19 Thailand women’s cricket team.
Conclusion: Thailand women’s cricket team hit ball farther than U-19 Thailand women’s cricket team. Moreover Thailand women’s cricket team and U-19 Thailand women’s cricket team provided difference the front foot of drive hitting cricket indicated by significant differences of kinematic data in ball reflection angle and bat centre of mass to centre of ASIS.
