In addition, the Pakistani captain expressed concern about the unavailability of a punch coach for the national team, saying there should have been one to train their clubs for the test series against Bangladesh. "However, the decision to appoint a batting coach rests with the Pakistan Cricket Board," he said. Australian batting legend Mathew Hayden was named batting advisor for the recently concluded ICC Men's T20 World Cup after former Pakistani cricketers Misbah-ul-Haq and Waqar Younus stepped down from their coaching positions in September.

Babar Azam said the team would have less time to prepare for test cricket after the T20 World Cup. However, he said the cricketers are professionals and will soon have to adjust to test cricket. "We have been playing white ball cricket for many months, now we have to get used to red ball cricket as soon as possible, we have top weirdos on the team," he said.

When asked about his underperformance during the recent T20 series against the Tigers, Babar Azam said there was no need for him to do well in every series. Other team members need to move up as well, he added. "It is good that other batsmen have taken responsibility and scored runs," he said.
