KARACHI: Pakistan cricket captain Misbah-ul-Haq cited lack of consistency by the batsmen as reason for the debacle in ODI and T20 series against England, Geo News reported.

In an interview with Geo News programme Score, the captain noted that all the players are professional and they need to perform.

While responding to a question, he said that the team cannot be reformed overnight by appointing a new selection committee and Dav Whatmore as coach.

'Shoaib Malik was included in the team on past performances not due to friendship.'
