Gist of the sloka:
O King of the Bharatha dynasty, hearing the words of Gudakesha, Lord Hrishikesha stopped his great chariot in between the two armies.
Sanjaya continuing his commentary to Emperor Dhitrarastra, informed him that Lord of Senses [Hrishikesha] stopped the chariot in between the two armies. Arjuna is called Gudakesha as one who had conquered sleep.
Ego, overconfidence etc., are all mental states of a person. Lord Krishna being the lord of the senses, starts applying psychotherapy to Arjuna; to remove the ego and overconfidence in Arjuna. Gita happens to be the first book of Psychology in the world.
