Pakistan cricket authorities have decided to appoint Taimoor Ali Khan as a sports psychologist for the national team prior to their World Cup campaign in England.
Taimoor has been apparently recommended by the national team's bowling coach Azhar Mahmood.
He has been appointed till May 11 to be with the Pakistan team which will be leaving for England on April 23 to play some practice games against English counties, a T20I and five ODIs against England before World Cup practice games begin.
"Taimoor will be working with the players on the mental aspect of preparing for a mega-event like the World Cup and if required the board can extend his contract for the World Cup but for now he will be with the team until 11th May," a reliable source in the PCB said.
This is not the first time that thePCB has sought the help of a psychologist to work with the players.
