James Bray with Mark Fogarty, Steve Barrett, Ric Lovell & Grant Abt

This study assessed the between-and within-match variability of external training load measures during two consecutive Twenty20 cricket seasons in professional fast bowlers. Global positioning system (GPS) and accelerometer data (PlayerLoad™) were collected from eight fast bowlers in 17 matches of domestic Twenty20 competition. Using GPS-accelerometry systems, the variables selected for analysis were as follows: total distance, low speed running distance, high-speed running distance, total sprint distance, number of sprint efforts, peak speed and PlayerLoad™.
