Some great points Albab:

The main reason behind this is, in football, rugby or any other intense sports within five minutes of the game your body is warmed up and the initial nerves you have are overtaken by an extremely high heart rate. The same can be said about bowlers in cricket, after the initial Harmison delivery, most bowlers find their rhythm and hardly ever falls victim to pressure, most likely due to the superior heart rate.
May be something for the coaches to take note? Our players are too often seen frolicking in the dressing room instead of warming-up with light cardio before walking to the crease.
