"The team is performing under Babar Azam's captaincy while Saqlain Mushtaq is managing the players really well. Our Test side is strong and can beat Bangladesh at their home," he added.

Talking to the reporters, Misbahul Haq said that well done for those who were thinking that the team started to perform better after his resignation. He said he was also happy to see the national team winning.

Misbah and bowling coach Waqar Younis stepped down after the West Indies series and Pakistan Cricket board (PCB) had to appoint Saqlain Mushtaq as interim head coach while Matthew Hayden and Vernon Philander were named as consultant coaches for the T20 World Cup.

He also said that it was not the matter that who was the coach the most important thing that matter is that everyone wants success of the national team.
