    Pakistan team coach Intikhab Alam is certain that the sessions held by a sports psychologist with the team players will help them to be psychologically ready to handle the pressure in the ICC Twenty20 World Cup 09 in England.

    Sports psychologist Maqbool Bari held one to one sessions with the selected players on the sidelines of practice matches in Lahore last week besides conducting group therapy.

    He was also supposed to have sessions with players during the conditioning camp in Bhurban earlier this month but the idea was dropped by the board because of the heavy fees demanded by Bari.

    Intikhab pointed out that there was nothing much to separate between teams like Pakistan, India, Australia or South Africa in the T20 World Cup.

    Pakistan have also designated former Test batsman Basit Ali to work with the batsmen in Lahore for the World Cup.

    Captain Younus Khan noted that Basit's sessions had helped identify minor technical glitches in the batsmen and also made them more alert of their fault and how to conquer them.
