Practicing Psychotherapist and a certified clinical Hypnotherapist Maqbool A. Babri has denied reports of the Pakistani cricket team being 'mentally weak'.

Babri, who has worked with Pakistani cricketers on a number of occasions, said that it is unfair to call the current Pakistan team mentally weak and added that every team has their own set of problems, reports.

Stating that there is always room for Pakistan teams to become mentally stronger, Babri recommended that the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) continue with their involvement with the stakeholders for further strengthening of the human resources and the team.

He urged the PCB and management to become more focused towards serving the players, and suggested a strategy planning workshop for the board to evolve a long term plan to enhance the sense of security for everyone supporting the teams and the PCB.

Babri added that increased participatory decision making, open consultations amongst the management, team selectors, coaches and the team leaders would further strengthen the performance of the Pakistani team.

He further said that Pakistani players also needed to be engaged more by coaches and managers to facilitate strengthening of a value based culture, and ensure a higher display of integrity and strength to resist and manage temptations. (ANI)
