This is what I was talking about for a Captain to be cool headed. A captain MUST set an example on and off the field.
But there was also a cautionary note for the stand-in captain Shane Watson, who spoiled an otherwise admirable bowling stint with a no-ball that reprieved Andre Russell at a critical time. Watson fumed over the episode and may need to calm himself more rapidly on future captaincy assignments, not least on this tour.
Watson was the angriest man in St Vincent by the end of the over. Whereas a regular player might have been permitted a brief outfield sulk, the captain had to compose himself to lead his team in the tense final overs
Anger reduces focus, efficiency, intelligence; and yes, that goes even for Boxers.
And that counter-effects of anger are even more felt when you are the leader and your decisions may become clouded with personal feelings.
Anger cannot exists without the person, the ego being alive. Anger is a useless personal emotion. One cannot get angry if one is professional and thinking of the larger picture than oneself.
