Pakistan captain Younus Khan believes his side's recent defeats are the result of a 'flawed domestic structure'.
Sunday's six-wicket reverse saw Sri Lanka take an unassailable 3-0 lead in the five-match one-day international series against Pakistan.
The hosts' one-day series triumph swiftly followed their 2-0 series victory in the preceding three-match Test series, the visitors losing the first match inside four days and the second inside three.
The manner of the defeats have been criticised by former players, many of whom have put the defeats down to a lack of unity in the squad.
Younus, however, blames the defeats on faulty techniques of his young players.
"The problem with Pakistan cricket is that our domestic structure is flawed," he said.
"The players have a faulty technique and only overcome these shortcomings once they start playing for the national team.
"Even when I first came into the Pakistan team, my technique was not good. It took me two years to get it right."
Younus also refuted claims his team was fragmented despite the 31-year-old previously calling for vice-captain Misbah-ul-Haq to be dropped after the first ODI defeat.
Misbah was omitted for the second and third matches, but it failed to halt Pakistan's slide.
"I have a perfectly fine relationship with all the players in the team including the senior players," Younus said.
"I am not a mad man and I don't go out fighting with everyone."
