Karachi [Pakistan], Nov 18 (ANI): Pakistan opening batsman Ahmad Shahzad, who hasn't been able to perform consistently in the last few years, is planning to consult a psychologist to regain his form.

He is going to consult a British psychologist Dr Taimoor after finishing National T20 Cup, reports the Express Tribune.

Shahzad, who made his ODI debut for Pakistan in 2009, started well in his career but the right-handed batsman has been struggling with form since past few years.

He also failed to display a promising show in the recently concluded Sri Lanka series in UAE and thus was replaced by left-handed batsman Imamul Haq in the ODI series.

It was also reported that Shehzad's poor performance in 2016 World T20I led to a PCB committee suggesting a ban on him.

Seeing Shahzad's dip in form, Pakistan head coach Mickey Arthur advised him to consult a psychologist to regain the disappearing boost.

Young Pakistan opener Ahmed Shehzad suffered a fractured skull after being hit by a Corey Anderson bouncer in a dramatic dismissal on the second day of a cricket test against New Zealand in Abu Dhabi.

Shehzad also suffered a fractured skull after being hit by a New Zealand's Corey Anderson's bouncer in a Test match in Abu Dhabi and it is said that the Pakistan cricketer has been witnessing a bad form since then. (ANI)
