Sports Desk KARACHI - Former captains on Saturday slammed the Pakistan cricket team for its inconsistent performance in the 3-2 win over the West Indies in the just concluded ODI series in the Caribbean. After taking an unassailable lead of 3-0, Pakistan lost the last couple of matches to the West Indies without putting up much fight. Former captain Javed Miandad, who turned down the offer to become a full time batting consultant before the commencement of the West Indies tour, said the result of the series once again highlighted the inconsistent nature of the team. "We can never be among the top teams in the world because we are just not consistent enough. For the last two years we have been losing or winning by close margins. To lose against a weak side like West Indies is unacceptable by any standards," Miandad said and added that the main problem with the team was that the batsmen did not have enough hunger for runs. "Against a weak opposition top batsmen always try to score tons of runs. But surprisingly our batsmen kept on struggling against this attack," he said. Miandad, however, reiterated that the team does not require a batting coach. "At this level you can have a strategist or planner but not a coach it is a false term. If a batsman needs to be coached at this level he should not be in the team at all," the former great stressed. Another former Test captain Zaheer Abbas criticised the team management for blaming Duckworth-Lewis method for their loss to West Indies in the fourth ODI saying, "The way they swept us aside by ten wickets in the last match indicates that our team really performed badly." Zaheer said there was a clear lack of aptitude and planning in the national team and the management was not delivering. "We had a golden chance to beat the West Indies 5-0 but we squandered that opportunity. The batting line-up is clearly struggling. Misbah didn't score in the last two matches and the team lost."
