Abstract

The purpose of the study was to conduct an in-depth examination of the stress and emotion process experienced by three sub-elite level male cricketers over a series of five competitive performances. Using reflective diaries and follow up semi-structured interviews, the findings highlighted the impact of appraisal, coping, and emotion on performance, with perceptions of control and self-confidence emerging as variables that can influence the emotive and behavioral outcomes of a stressful transaction. Post-performance, guided athlete reflection was advanced as a valuable tool in the production and application of idiographic coping behaviors that could enhance perceptions of control and self-confidence and influence stress and emotion processes.
