One cannot expect immediate results after two days of sessions, observed Bangladesh opener Anamul Haque as performance psychologist Phill Jauncey ended his programme with the Tigers yesterday at the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium in Mirpur.
As part of the Bangladesh Cricket Board's (BCB) attempt to rectify the national team's recent bad performances, they hired Jauncey to make sure that no stone was left unturned ahead of the Tigers' tough challenge during the Caribbean tour in August-September.
“He said many things in detail and talked about some particular issues. Now we have to apply all those things in the middle. And it takes time to follow his instructions. It's not like everything will fall into place after getting lessons from him. We need to get used to his teaching gradually,” the 21-year old told reporters yesterday when asked about the impact of the two-day course.
The young opener however believed that the sessions will have an impact in their performance if they can keep Jauncey's advice in mind and follow it during the practice sessions.
“It's not like someone has to always say these kinds of things. He gave us something and we will try our best to follow his advice. He will come again if needed. Everything depends on us; but I am sure we will benefit if we follow what he told us during the two-day programme,” said Anamul when asked about whether it would be better for them to have Jauncey on a long-term basis.
