Background: Hamstring Strain is common among athletes which lead to development of injury. Superficial Backline stretching for improving range of motion and flexibility. Using Tennis ball is a form of self-myofascial release results in increasing range of motion. Literature lacks studies done on self- myofascial release and superficial backline stretching. Hence my intention towards this study in comparison to find out the effect of Self Myofascial Release using tennis ball and superficial backline stretching on hamstring strain in cricket players. Methodology: A total of 24 subjects who were between the age group of 15 -19 years were conveniently allocated based on the inclusion criteria. Subjects received self-myofascial release using tennis ball 60 sec with 3-4 repetitions and 1 min interval of rest between sessions and superficial backline stretching with different poses for 2-3 repetitions and then compared FMS score of all subjects pre and post intervention after giving the superficial backline stretches and myofascial release to all the subjects. Outcome measure: Functional movement screen (FMS) Results: The result shows that there is a significant difference in pre and post Score of FMS, pre-FMS score is 15.9167Â±2.60295 and post score increased to 19.2500Â±1.59483which shows thatthere is statistical and clinical difference between the pre and post intervention. Functional movement is measured as the primary outcome measure.There is an average improvement of 3.333 with t value 12.487 and p <0.05. Conclusion: The aim of the study was to compare and find out the effect of Self Myofascial Release using tennis ball and superficial backline stretching on hamstring strain in cricket players., the result showed that there is statistically significant self-myofascial release using tennis ball and superficial backline stretching.
