Similar to baseball: The forces that cricket applies to the upper extremity are similar to those in other upper extremity intensive sports, eg baseball, swimming, volleyball, etc. In the shoulder, think slap tears, labral injuries, and rotator cuff problems. In the shoulder, think ulnar collateral ligament injuries and tendinitis. These are challenging and should be evaluated by a doc with appropriate experience.
