Cricket’s new fangled myths

Glen Turner has written an excellent opinion piece questioning the wisdom of inculcating team culture in cricket.

He takes a dig at this emphasis on

"leading by example, role models, desired behaviours, opinion-shapers, trust and honesty, induction processes and so on. All this and more to get players job ready and in between times I suppose they can do some practice and play the odd game. I thought you only had to drink Speights to be the perfect man".

I believe he has it right and more than aiding in a cricketers development, these management theories has actually impaired it. For instance Greg Chappell's who appears to believe in the 'chaos theory' brought in some new fangled ideas and not only managed to shatter many a Indian cricketers morale but also managed to regress Indian cricket.
