Stylish Pakistani opener, Ahmed Shehzad has decided to consult a British psychologist Dr Taimoor to get his form back as a Pakistan opener. Shehzad burst into the international arena as a promising cricketer, but he has not been able to show consistency with the bat in the recent past.
Shehzad had a fair stint with Pakistan against a three-match T20 series against the World Xi which brought international cricket to Pakistan after eight long years. However, he again failed during the recently concluded Sri Lanka series and was replaced by left-handed Imamul Haq during the ODI series.
The head coach of the Pakistan Cricket team, Mickey Arthur was not able to comprehend the recent dip in Shehzad’s performance, thus suggested him to consult a psychologist to have a better understanding of the problem the right-handed batsman is facing.
Many were of the opinion that Shehzad’s fall in performance came after a bouncer hit him from Corey Anderson in a Test match against New Zealand, three years back. He sustained a skull fracture after the blow in that match.
The 25-year-old Shehzad made his ODI and T20 debut way back in 2009 and in his eight years career has represented Pakistan in 13 Test matches, 81 ODI’s and 53 T20Is scoring 982, 2605, and 1353 runs respectively. He scores at a healthy strike rate and is a class act to watch when in form.
