Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) has hired an Australian psychologist for the National Team, according to reliable sources.

The psychologist will arrive in Sri Lanka early next week and will motivate the players until the team leaves for the Bangladesh tour.

However, this psychologist will not travel with the National Team to Bangladesh according to the sources.

The Sri Lankan Team is scheduled to play a Tri-Nation Series also involving Bangladesh and Zimbabwe in addition to two Test matches and two Twenty20 internationals in Bangladesh.

The new Coach Chandika Hathurusingha may not have recommended his name but he may have been aware about his skills as the coach was in Australia for quite some time.

The source didn’t reveal the name, but he is reported to be Phil Jauncey. In the past, SLC had utilised the services of Sandy Gordon.  

The Board did hire Gordon to motivate the players in the past.

The new psychologist’s main task is to motivate the depleted Sri Lankan Team which had suffered some heavy defeats in all formats of the game in recent times. (Bipin Dani)

    WHAT IS MORE IMPORTANT IS A PSYCHOLOGIST TO DIAGNOSE SLC OFFICERS.

    Why not hire wizard of OZ as well..... What's the point of motivating a bunch of incompetent players..... We lost our cricket long time before..... Now we have only salaried employees of a government organisation.... Who get paid for nothing!!!

    If a cricket player needs psychological treatment, then he is mental sick and unable to play in the National Cricket Team

    Yes try anything and everything but not attack the root cause - the incompetent overpaid overstaffed SLC officials and Board who need to go and leave it to some competent people.

    When you realise that you are riding a dead horse, best is to dismount...

    Very good move. Always thought a motivational pyschologist was the need of times. Leadership and fitness training regime is also important.

    Kumara Dharmarathne Friday, 29 December 2017 07:26 PM

    It was long overdue. However, late is better than never. Please make sure,everybody from top to bottom participate in the program. Today,this is very badly needed for good cricket.

    John Saturday, 30 December 2017 09:13 AM

    Yes, start with the man in parliament, whom NEWS 1 directly asked of!

    Sambo Saturday, 30 December 2017 08:05 AM

    So now we can send the officials to play instead of the players.
