PCB hires sports psychologist, motivational speaker for cricketers
Karachi, July 25 (ANI): Former Pakistan Test cricketer Moin-ul-Atiq has joined the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) as a sports psychologist and motivational speaker.
"I have done a few courses in sports psychology and hold a degree in sports management from England, and will be using my experiences to help players to overcome their problems," The Express Tribune quoted Moin, as saying.
"Being a former international cricketer myself, it will be easy for me to understand the problems of the players and help them overcome them," added Moin, who played one Test and five one-day Internationals between 1988-89 for Pakistan.
Moin said he had previously conducted motivational assignments for Pakistan's under-15 squad for the West Indies tour a couple of years ago and was also hired by the board for its under-19 players at different regional academies across the country.
Earlier in June, the PCB had chosen a psychologist to work with fast-bowler Mohammad Amir who is serving a five-year ban by the International Cricket Council's (ICC).
Maqbool A Babri, a practicing psychotherapist and a certified clinical hypnotherapist will be working with the pacer.
PCB COO Subhan Ahmad said the board had decided to hire a psychologist after a growing number of incidents of players going astray. (ANI)
