Bangladesh cricketers cannot play two Tests in a row - Dhaka Test has once again provided an instance for such allegations. Bangladesh have accepted a miserable defeat in the Dhaka Test against Sri Lanka on Friday (May 27) by 10 wickets. In such a situation, many have urged the cricketers to work on their mental health.
Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) president Nazmul Hassan Papon said cricketers would soon be consulted with psychologists so that they could overcome mental barriers and mental problems. He also said that the board has already started working on this.
The Department of Cricket Operations had earlier wanted to take cricketers to psychology sessions. However, it has been delayed due to unavoidable reasons. Any desired session of psychologists may be arranged for the believers in any free time ahead.
The BCB president said, “Many players feel tired. They play well in the beginning. If one plays well for 3 days in the second Test, then in the next 2 days, he can't. He doesn’t change, the technique is the same, the skill is the same, the same training has been given - then why can't he at this time? Surely there is a possibility of something mentally.”
Papon thinks Bangladesh cricketers lack Test temperament or attitude. "There is a lack of Test mindset," he added. “Of course, they have to work with a psychologist. They have already worked. As far as I know, there’s been a session already. It has been already planned.”
