Abstract The visual performance of cricket batsmen is simulated over a wide range of ambient illumination. When illumination falls to the level at which they usually stop batting (the gloom level) a rapid increase in reaction time commences. It is also the level at which office and car sidelights are turned on and the sensation of “gloom” occurs.
