  1. a Estimates were adjusted for age, gender (male = 0, female = 1), cricket seasons played, playing status (current = 0, former = 1), history of joint injury (no joints injured = 0, sustained a joint injury = 1), and history of orthopaedic surgery (never had an orthopaedic surgery = 0, underwent orthopaedic surgery = 1)
  2. b Physician diagnosed osteoarthritis was defined as having received a previous osteoarthritis diagnosis from a general practitioner
  3. c Persistent joint pain was assessed by asking individuals if they had joint-specific pain on ‘most days of the last month’
