We were delighted to hear this week that the British Journal of Sports Medicine (BJSM) has accepted the consensus statement on cricket injuries that David has been working on for the last year or so with an international panel of doctors and physiotherapists. This is an update on the original consensus statement that David worked on in 2005. the paper ‘International consensus statement on injury surveillance in cricket: a 2016 update’, will be published later in the year.
David commented “this is a major update incorporating changes not only in the professional game but also in the recreational cricket. It is no minor achievement to get 25 authors to agree let alone when the majority of the work has had to be done by email. We owe a huge thanks to John Orchard who has lead this project from its inception 12 years ago. We are also indebted to South African Richard Stretch, who was a major driving force throughout this project up to his death last year.”
