Hello, I understand your pain and It seems that your pain is refraining you from doing your activities. According to your history it kooks like you have developed shin splints and that is why you're having pain while you run. Never mind all you have to do is to give it rest and apply ice and heat packs alternatively in a day both together should in count of 4 in a day. It would.give you better relief. But since you.have asked whether you can play or not yes you can but if you bowl or field in out field you will have to run and there you will feel the pain again. Now the choice is yours. Thank you
