Hello Ravi. am glad that you are interested in making a career in Sports. Having a good height depends on the sport you are choosing. We have professional Wrestlers of an average height of 5 feet and 4 inches. So height is important but depends on the Sport.

I don't think a good height is not necessary for every sport. But for some sports, it is mandatory. For sports like soccer and cricket doesn't require you have a tall stature.

HI Ravi,

I don't think height will matter if you want to become cricketer. You should have grit and endurance to work hard and achieve your goal.

Height might give advantage in sports like basketball, volleyball but not in cricket.

Hi Ravi,


I'm a big cricket fan and in cricket I don't think it matters much. The sport has had very successful shorter than average and taller than average players. Sachin Tendulkar is 5 ft 5 in for example. But in most sports height does matter. In horse racing the shorter the better but in basket ball, taller players rule. I found this interesting Wikipedia page that give a good overview across most sports (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Height_in_sports).
