Motor fitness is gauged by performance and this performance is based on a composite of many factors. The most commonly motor fitness factors are Speed, Muscular Strength, Muscular Endurance, Muscular Power, Circulatory Respiratory Endurance, Flexibility and Agility. The purpose of the study was calculating the motor fitness components of inter-university cricket and football players. The subjects for this study were cricket and football interuniversity players of Dr. Ram Manohar Lohiya Awadh University, Faizabad, Uttar Pradesh. Seven tests were administered to assess the motor fitness level i.e. 50 yards run (Speed), Pull-ups (Muscular Strength), Bent knee sit-ups (Muscular Endurance), Standing broad jump (Muscular Power), 600 yards run/walk (Circulatory Respiratory Endurance), Sit and Reach test (Flexibility) and Shuttle run (Agility). . The data was statistically analyzed using the ‘t’ test. It was found that there was significant difference between cricket and football players in 50 yards run, bent knee sit-ups, 600 yards run walk, sit and reach test and shuttle run test. There was no significant difference between cricket and football players in pull-ups and standing broad jump test performance. The football players was superior than cricketer in 50 yards run, bent knee sit-ups, 600 yards run walk sit and reach test. The cricket players were better than footballer in shuttle run test.
