Sachin needs counselling: Psychologists back Latif
Sachin Tendulkar has not been able to score his much awaited 100th ton, as he scored his last ton..

Psychologists have backed Rashid Latif’s suggestion that Sachin Tendulkar should seek the help of a psychologist to overcome his mental stress. Dr. Sonia Kapur, sports psychologist told Merinews: “It is essential for Sachin Tendulkar to interact with a physiologist in a one to one interaction, as he seems to be undergoing through a mental block as of now”. The little master scored his last century during the ICC World Cup, March 2011.


Though, Sachin has almost achieved everything in his cricketing career, everyone awaits his 100th ton, which has never happened in the history of the game. On the same point, Kapur says, he has achieved everything, so she also questions the motivation of the player, which would raise many a question among ardent Sachin fans, who treat him as a god. He has always given his best whenever he has taken the field that is what we would see in our idiot boxes or stadiums, with our naked eye. But, Sports Psychologist can even read the behaviour of the player on the field, which might have something else to say.


With billions of fans around the world, Sachin is under lots of pressure when he walks into the middle. Rajeev Mehta, a psychiatrist at Bliss Dwarka also agrees that Tendulkar needs to visit a psychologist and suggests, “Tendulkar should not look at the scoreboard while batting, as it increases the pressure manifold, when he nears the milestone”. No wonder he has been known for his nervous nineties.


There are various approaches that he can take to overcome this mental block, if he wants to. Kapur says, “Some techniques such as Bio Feedback, Instant Broota’s technique along with Jacob’s technique would be helpful to Sachin”. These techniques help sportsperson during relaxation, reducing stress, etc.  She feels age is not the problem, which many perceive to be the reason for his unsuccessful attempt in achieving his landmark.


Though, psychologists like Kapur feels that it would be better if Sachin meets a Psychologist, as it could help him in relaxing and reducing the stress levels, which seems to be a major problem, as of now. One has to wonder, are we expecting too much from the little master. He may not be in the best of form as of now, though he is middling the ball and scoring runs. It may just be a matter of time, so we also need to relax and wait for the player’s moment, as he has given many memories, which would never evade from our memories.


Sounding like an astrologer, Sonia confidently says, “Tendulkar would score a century immediately after he meets a Physcologist”.
