Sports Psychologist, Taimoor Ali Khan who was hired by the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has begun his work with the Pakistani squad ahead of the England series. This is not the first time that the Pakistani cricket authorities have sought the help of a qualified sports psychologist to work with the players
The psychologist is expected to work with the players to improve their mental strength and will provide psychological counseling to the players related to their performance.
PCB believes that the presence of sports psychologist among the team would be beneficial, as it would make players more confident in their abilities and will mentally prepare them for the crucial matches of the World Cup.
Taimoor is expected to accompany the team throughout the England series during which he will conduct individual sessions with all the players. However, his running contract could be extended by the PCB to the upcoming World Cup 2019, if he manages to satisfy the team management with his work.
