Banned Aamer wants to return - psychologist

Pakistan's disgraced paceman Mohammed Aamer is looking forward to returning to cricket “as and when possible”, the psychologist helping to rehabilitate his career said Monday. In the first of several counselling sessions Maqbool Babri, who was hired by the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) to counsel Aamer, said his client appeared “positive and relaxed” despite his five-year ban from the game for cheating. The 20-year-old was found guilty of spot-fixing during a Test at Lord's in 2010, spent three months in a British jail and was banned from the game by the International Cricket Council (ICC). The ICC also banned pace partner Mohammad Asif and ex-captain Salman Butt, ordering the trio to undergo rehabilitation.

Babri said Aamer was upbeat in the first of eight to 10 sessions.

“I am very surprised that he was very positive and relaxed during the first session with me on Saturday,” Babri told AFP. “I think that Aamer's lawyer was a positive influence on him and has guided him well.” Before the scandal, Aamer was regarded as the hottest new international talent due to the lethal left-arm pace bowling which likened him to Pakistan former great Wasim Akram.

Babri said Aamer believes he belongs in the cricketing world.
