After Pakistan’s two consecutive losses to the Kiwis, Pakistani batting coach Adam Hollioake analyzed Azam’s batting. He praised Azam for his hard-hitting abilities but expressed his desire to see his power in the near future.

Azam Khan is a destructive batsman. I mean, unfortunately, tonight he came in, and he really needed to go straight away and he got out. One of these things is that if it works, you look great. If it doesn't work you look stupid. He's an exciting player, a big hitter, though he hasn't shown it in these two games. Expect him to shine in the future.
Hollioake said in the post-match press conference

Azam made his international debut back in 2021 in a T20I match against England. So far, he has played just seven matches in the format, collecting just 19 runs.

After the second T20Is, the two teams will lock horns on Wednesday (January 17). The Kiwis currently lead the five-match series 2-0.
