The main purpose of the study was to compare the four different group cricket player’s skill wise, for the purpose total 38 players were recruited and further they were divided in four different groups as per their skills. It was predicted that all four groups will be different in their motor fitness profiles, for the purpose discriminant analyses was carried out and probability level was set for 0.05 levels. The results indicated that all four groups were different to each other in their motor fitness variables, but Vertical jump was the only variable which contributed significantly highest degree in separating the groups to each other. It was concluded that one can identify the cricket player’s skill wise on their motor fitness level and efficiency. Further, it was recommended to make specific motor fitness test compulsion in talent identification and in specific training programme of cricket player’s skill wise.
