Travel insurance with us means great value, so you get to keep more money to spend on your holiday.
With cricket your mind will always be alert, as you have to make prompt but good decisions on how to bowl, where to hit the ball and whether you can get there in time to hit the ball. Although this sport is not as fast-paced as soccer or violent as boxing, the risk of getting injured during the game is still present. Cricket injuries highly depend on the position played. Most common injuries for bowlers occur due to the repetitive motion and the high forces used. Bowlers suffer mostly from shoulder or elbow overuse injuries. Wicket keepers and batsmen tend to suffer from impact injuries from the ball, although they are rare.
Most common cricket injuries like rotator cuff tears, medial ligament injuries at the elbow and impingement syndromes require serious medical treatment, which may cost much more if you’re travelling abroad. So, cricket travel insurance is an essential, if you want to enjoy this game and your trip on the whole with a complete peace of mind. Make sure your travel insurance policy covers all the adventure activities you are going to participate in.
