Mohali: Down in the dumps, a beleaguered Australian squad is all set to procure help of sports psychologist Michael Lloyd in order to restore the morale of the squad which has taken a beating after two disastrous defeats.
     
According to a, Lloyd has been flown in to India to work with players following Australia's 10th worst defeat in their 136-year history in the second Test.
     
However, according to a newspaper, Lloyd's arrival preceded the sacking of Watson, Mitchell Johnson, James Pattinson and Usman Khawaja.
     
Lloyd works across several CA-affiliated teams and was scheduled to arrive before Australia's tour turned sour.
     
But Lloyd's presence now comes at an opportune time as Australia's players come to terms with the axing of four teammates and how they recover in time to retain the Border-Gavaskar trophy.
     
"Before the tour, we identified this as a good opportunity for him to work with guys before the second and third Tests," a Cricket Australia spokesman said.
