Newly-appointed sports psychologist Soumendra Saha has joined the Bangladesh cricket team on Wednesday, hoping to enhance the mental strength of struggling Tigers.
Soumendra was accompanied by his wife Srilekha Saha, a doctorate in sports psychology, when he visited the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium to see the practice of national players in the afternoon.
The couple had previously worked at the BKSP and thus are already familiar to some of the players, who graduated from the institution. National team manager Tanjeeb Ahsan Saad introduced them to the rest of the players and coach Jamie Siddons and his coaching staff and they spent some time together.
Soumendra said he will not be working on a permanent basis and rather will assist the Tigers from time to time. His initial assignment will prolong for three weeks.
‘Basically I will try to synchronise my visits keeping in line with the schedules of the national side and according to their needs,’ Soumendra told reporters after his orientation.
‘I know players are aware of the expectations and are quite capable of handling their problems. I just want to guide them ahead,’ said Soumendra, an Indian national based in Malaysia.
‘My wife will assist me in preparing the data and analysing them and while I will be more inclined to interact with the players both individually and in groups,’ said Soumendra.
‘I already have some data about some players and I hope to add the others to my database as soon as possible. It can be done only through observation and experimentation,’ said Soumendra.

[বাংলা]সৌমেন্দ্র সাহার কাজ কী?[/বাংলা]
[বাংলা]
স্পোর্টস করেসপন্ডেন্ট
বাংলানিউজটোয়েন্ট ফোর.কম.বিডি

ঢাকা: ড. সৌমেন্দ্র সাহা এবং ড. শ্রীলেখা সাহা সম্পর্কে স্বামী-স্ত্রী। পেশায় ক্রীড়া মনোবিজ্ঞানী। খেলোয়াড়দের মন বোঝাই তাদের কাজ। বাংলাদেশ ক্রিকেট দলের উপদেষ্টা মনোবিজ্ঞানী হিসেবে কাজ করতে ঢাকায় এসেছেন।

বুধবার জাতীয় দলের অনুশীলনের সময় স্বামী-স্ত্রী দুজনকেই অনেক ব্যস্ত দেখালো। কখনো ইনডোর, কখনো মাঠের দিকে হন্তদন্ত হয়ে ছুটছেন। কি দেখছেন, কি বুঝছেন সেটা বোঝার সাধ্যি হয়নি। তবে দুজনের চলার গতিতে ব্যস্ততার ছাপ স্পষ্ট ছিলো।

জাতীয় দলের মনোবিজ্ঞানী হিসেবে দায়িত্ব পাওয়ায়, অলিখিত একটি সংবাদ ব্রিফিং করতে হলো সোমেন্দ্রকে। কবে থেকে কাজ শুরু করছেন? এমন প্রশ্নের চটপটে উত্তর দিয়ে দিলেন ড. সৌমেন্দ্র সাহা,“কাজ তো শুরু হয়ে গেছে।”

সাংবাদিকরা বুঝতে পারলেন না কী কাজটা তিনি এরই মধ্যে করে ফেলেছেন। প্রাসঙ্গিক প্রশ্ন হলো: ক্রিকেটারদের সঙ্গে কথা বলেছেন? এবার মনোবিজ্ঞানীর মনের কথা বেরিয়ে এলো। ‘‘আসলে ক্রিকেটারদের সঙ্গে কথা বলা হয়নি। পরিবেশ পরিস্থিতি বোঝার চেষ্টা করেছি। ধারণা নেওয়ার চেষ্টা করছি।”

জাতীয় দলের ক্রিকেটারদের নিয়ে কি ধরণের কাজ তিনি করবেন সে বিষয়ে পরিষ্কার ধারণা দিতে পারেননি সৌমেন্দ্র। তবে যা বলেছেন তার সারমর্ম হলো, ক্রিকেটারদের তেমন সমস্যা নেই। আন্তর্জাতিক সব ক্রিকেটারই সচেতন। সামান্য কিছু কাজ করতে হবে।

সৌমেন্দ্রেও ভাষায়,“ক্রীড়া মনোবিদ একজন খেলোয়াড়ের মন বোঝার চেষ্টা করে। কিভাবে নিজের সিদ্ধান্ত নেবেন একজন খেলোয়াড়। কিভাগে এগিয়ে যাবেন। দ্রুত সিদ্ধান্ত নেওয়ার বিষয়ে শিক্ষা দেন।”

ড. সৌমেন্দ্র সাহা এখন মালয়েশিয়ায় ইউনিভার্সিটি অব সায়েন্স এর ক্রীড়া বিজ্ঞান বিভাগের অধ্যাপক। এর আগে ২০০১ থেকে ২০০৩ সালে বাংলাদেশ ক্রীড়া বিজ্ঞান প্রতিষ্ঠানে মনোবিজ্ঞানী হিসেবে কাজ করেছেন। সেখান থেকে কানাডায় পিএইচডি করেছেন।

ড. শ্রীলেখা সাহা বিকেএসপিতেই ছিলেন ২০০৪ থেকে ২০০৮ সাল পর্যন্ত। তারা দুজনই এক সঙ্গে বাংলাদেশের ক্রিকেট নিয়ে গবেষণা করবেন। শ্রীলেখা তথ্য সংগ্রহ এবং পর্যবেক্ষণ ও লেখা-লেখির কাজ করবেন। সোমেন্দ্র ক্রিকেটারদের সমস্যা নিয়ে কাজ করবেন।

বিকেএসপিতে থাকার সময় অনূর্ধ্ব-১৭, ১৯ এবং জাতীয় দলের ক্রিকেটারদের ওপর জরিপ করেছেন এই দুই ক্রীড়া মনোবিজ্ঞানী।

Psychologist for Tigers
No bowling coach yet
Sports Reporter

Sports psychologist Dr Soumendra Saha has joined the Tigers camp as a consultant yesterday as the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) looked to strengthen their support staff ahead of the 2011 World Cup, where they are one of the co-hosts along with India and Sri Lanka.

Soumendra Saha, who is a professor at the Department of Sports Science at the University Sains Malaysia, stated that his main focus would be to assist the players so that they can take their performance one step forward.

"They (players) are all professionals and well aware of their job. My focus will be to help them so that they can take their performance forward," said Soumendra while talking to reporters during a practice session at the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium in Mirpur yesterday.

"The expectation will be sky-high during the World Cup. The fans definitely want to see their team playing good cricket during the World Cup as hosts. So, it would be an issue. We will talk with the players first to share ideas and then I will assess on how to progress," said Soumendra who will be assisted in his job by his spouse Srilekha Saha.

Soumendra will work with the Tigers for a short period of time. "I will stay here for the next three weeks and will then be on call whenever necessary. I also have a commitment with my university," he added.

Bangladesh's next assignment is to play a five-match one-day series against New Zealand at home next month and after that they will play another one-day series against Zimbabwe before the World Cup.

Meanwhile, English coach Julian Fountain has started his stint with the Bangladesh national cricket team as a specialist fielding coach. However, the board is currently at the spot of bother regarding the appointment of the specialist bowling coach.

BCB failed to make any deal with the South African all-rounder Lance Klusener and media committee chairman Jalal Yunus informed that there was also hardly any chance to rope in former Indian paceman Venkatesh Prasad or former English pacer Andy Caddick.

"Prasad is likely to join as an ACC's development coach while Caddick is currently attending to his own business," informed Yunus.

"Although we are pressed for time, we are still looking for a foreign bowling coach," he added.

These guys will mostly work with our player's problems. I don't think that they will even teach them any aggressive skills to put pressure on the opponents.

But I'm happy that they atleast got some psychologist. Just mental strength/toughness alone can improve our team's performance considerably. Klusener would have done nothing to improve our pace attack anyway.

To be frank, "pagol-er daktar" is more essential than a cricket coach for our team. They (specially the batsmen) need to learn how to control their impulse first. Once they manage to learn it, we are going to beat the big boys of test cricket.

now if ash can't perform,he will say that this psychologist fiddled with his psychology and forced him to change his thinking approach,so that's why he can't perform!
