My PhD involved using GPS devices to collect data from international and first class cricketers to understand the game movement demands by the various positions, competitive levels, and also by the various game formats. This work resulted in a series of papers which allowed us to compare the training demands to the actual game demands, and enabled us to understand the influence HIIT training can have in conditioning cricketers.
