Psychologist hired for Mohammad Amir By PCB (June 11, 2012)
The PCB has hired the well-known sports Psychologist Maqbool Babri, who was also part of Pakistans’ support staff for the T20 cup in 2009 (which was won by Pakistan eventually). Amir will soon be beginning his rehabilitation, Wasim Bari (PCB director education) confirmed and this is a part of his rehab plans.
Mohammad Amir is banned by the ICC until 2015, and the PCB has been planning for his educational program to support him after the fallout of the spot-fixing scam. The date of Amir’s rehab program is not decided yet, but Babri believes that it will be a challenge for him to counsel Amir so that he can find his way back to international cricket (June 11, 2012).
