However, Azam’s knock of 104, which came off 173 balls and included 13 boundaries, didn’t stop Australia from winning the match by an innings and five runs.

The 25-year-old also noted that instead of comparing himself to high-profile players, he prefers to “stay in my own zone and focus on my own cricket”.

“I don’t think about comparisons, I say in every interview there is no comparison with him (Kohli) because he has played a lot of matches and has a lot of experience,” he was quoted as saying by PakPassion. “When I play more matches and I gain experience, then I think you can maybe compare but early on, I don’t think there is a comparison. I don’t think about these things as it brings extra pressure, to compare with such a big player. I stay in my own zone and focus on my own cricket.”
