Karachi: The Pakistan Cricket Board has sought the help of a sports psychologist to help experienced all-rounder Shahid Afridi regain his confidence in bowling ahead of the ICC Champions Trophy.

Afridi has been named in the shortlist of 30 probables for the Champions Trophy by the national selectors but indications are that if he doesn't perform in the President's Cup limited overs tournament he might be overlooked for the final squad.
