55 patients with 64 injuries of the hand sustained while playing cricket were reviewed, 46 clinically. Most of the injuries were during fielding. The peripheral digits were most frequently involved and joint injuries predominated. Though the majority of the patients had a satisfactory functional outcome, some admitted to occasional pain and persistence of swelling and/or minor deformity. The most serious injuries were eleven fractures of the base of the middle phalanx with dislocation of the P.I.P. joint.
