“I don’t think we have had a psychologist with us for the last 8-9 months,” he said. “I wouldn’t say we have had a psychologist travelling with us all the time. I don’t know if Paddy Upton is a psychologist; he is more of a life coach.”

Paddy Upton (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paddy_Upton) is a Leadership Coach, among other things.

And that is what South African cricket team needs. (Also, every other cricket team. Perhaps, Pak & England teams, more urgent!)

All teams have coaches, trainers, consultants, et al. But, they need someone to help them ‘Act Like a Leader, Think Like a Leader’. Every member, not just captain or seniors.

A leadership coach can help them. Not a psychologist either.

Let us see how South African team performs at the end of this world cup (cricket).
