The 24-year-old was well supported by Anwar Ali, who struck a 32-ball 33 late in the game, which included three boundaries.
Aziz is starting to gain a reputation as a finisher as he walloped an unbeaten 59, which came off 32 deliveries and included five boundaries and three sixes, in Sindh’s three-wicket win over Central Punjab on October 10.
“It looked a bit difficult when the match came down to the last three balls. I was anticipating fuller deliveries so I decided to hit the ball down the ground,” he was quoted as saying by the Pakistan Cricket Board’s (PCB) website.
“My plan was to bat until the end of the innings. When Anwar Ali walked into bat with me, we decided to rotate the strike initially before punishing bad balls.”
Aziz has now scored 162 runs in six games, which includes two half-centuries, at an average of 162 and a strike-rate of 163.63.
