Abstract

Decision making in elite sport has long been of interest, however only recently have the decision making processes of coaches gained an increase in attention. Whilst a number of decision making models have been proposed, it still remains unclear as to how these models may interact with one another as opposed to them being individual, discrete and isolated elements. This review is rooted within Cricket, given the idiosyncratic nature of the sport and the unique challenges faced by coaches within it. As a result, the review examines the existing literature around professional judgement and decision making (PJDM) and how this may be applied specifically to coaching in cricket. Secondly, we consider the integration of PJDM principles with coaches? epistemology and their epistemological chain. Finally, against this theoretical backdrop, we offer some implications for current practice and future research in this demonstrably important and complex area.
