Cricket is a vibrant and popular team sport played all over the world. As with other sports, playing cricket can help to deliver profound mental, health and physical benefits.
Although cricket is a non-contact sport, injuries do occur and the role of the ICC is to protect the health and welfare of international cricketers.
The ICC’s Medical Advisory Committee which was established in 2017, provides expert advice in sports medicine issues in international cricket. The four-member Committee which is chaired by Dr Peter Harcourt includes representation from different disciplines within sports medicine and from different cricketing regions.
