Aaron Johnson burst onto the T20I scene for Canada in 2022, quickly making a name for himself as a formidable opening batsman. His aggressive batting style was on full display when he hit a boundary off the very first ball against the USA, setting the tone for the 2024 T20 World Cup. He has the distinction of being the first Canadian batsman to score multiple centuries in T20I cricket.



Some of his shots against Pakistan's formiddale pace attack.

This guy has now scored a 50 as well against Pakistan in the ongoing T20 World Cup game off just 39 balls.
Amazing timing - he is what Azam Khan should aim to become. Power with athleticism
He now has the most 50-plus scores for Canada.

Most 50+ scores for Canada in T20Is

It seems like all the Johnsons have some grudge against Pakistan. First it was that Johnson from the USA and now this guy from Canada.

Pakistan must avoid playing against the West Indies or Johnson Charles will smash them too. lol

This thread is not about Pakistan players to be discussed. Talk about Aaron johnson.
Former PCB chairman Ramiz Raja praised Canadian opener Aaron Johnson, while talking on his YouTube channel:

"Naseem Shah bowled Aaron Johnson, otherwise, if he had stayed at the crease, the target could have reached 150, taking the match out of Pakistan's grip. Those were very timely blows. He hit four sixes, scoring half of the team's runs. He has that capability, and his batting is perfect for these pitches. He is quite strong, hitting straight shots very powerfully, and also slogs well."
