Sports psychologist to accompany Pakistan cricket team to India

l KARACHI

Sports psychologist Maqbool Babri will accompany the Pakistan cricket team on their tour of India this month for the first bilateral series between the two countries since 2007.

"It will be a high pressure tour and the T20 and ODI squads include some youngsters. So we are sending Dr Maqbool Babri with the team to India," Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) chairman Zaka Ashraf told reporters yesterday.

Babri was hired recently by the board to hold counseling sessions with fast bowler Mohammad Amir, who was jailed for corruption along with teammates Salman Butt and Mohammad Asif after a spot-fixing scandal in the 2010 Lord's Test against England.
