This article outlines a study that sought to discriminate visual anticipation skill between highly skilled (n = 13), elite club (n = 17), and elite youth (n = 9) cricket batsmen. Participants watched a video-based temporal occlusion test of a bowler and anticipated with a motor response. Results indicated that overall highly skilled and club batsmen were significantly superior to youth batsmen. Highly skilled batsmen anticipated above chance at ball release occlusion, whereas club and youth batsmen were above chance at no occlusion. Findings indicate that video-based temporal occlusion with a motor response is sensitive to discriminate anticipation in skilled players.
