    Sports Psychologist Jeremy Snape contracted for 17 days

    November 12, 2014

    Sports psychologist and former England offspinner Jeremy Snape has  been contracted for 17 days during England's upcoming ODI tour of Sri Lanka.


    Snape, will begin his work on November 25 and is due to stay with the team until December 11. Sri Lanka's record at recent World Cups had been a catalyst for the decision to sign a sports psychologist. A pattern of under-performance in major finals had developed between 2007 and 2012, in which time Sri Lanka were runners-up in four global events. Though the team has since won the 2014 World T20, the board has hired Snape with a view to buttressing the 2015 World Cup campaign.


    An offspinning-allrounder in his playing career, Snape played 10 ODIs and a T20I for England, in addition to 121 first-class matches. He has a masters degree in sports psychology, and has worked with England, South Africa, as well as teams in the IPL and Big Bash League. (KH)
