New Delhi. Canadian opener Aaron Johnson performed brilliantly while batting against Pakistan in the T20 World Cup. On the difficult pitch of New York where even big batsmen struggle to score runs, the magic of the bat of the Canadian cricketer worked wonders. He played a brilliant innings of 52 runs in 44 balls in the match. During this, four fours and as many sixes came off his bat. However, due to continuous fall of wickets at the other end, he could not score runs very fast.

When Aaron Johnson was out, Canada's score was 73 runs for the loss of six wickets in the 14th over. Johnson, who was trying to hit a big shot, was clean bowled by Naseem Shah. The innings of the Canadian batsman is important in many ways. Six matches have been played on the New York pitch so far. During this time, the highest score here is only 137 runs. This score was made by Canada during the match against Ireland. Teams like India-Pakistan and South Africa have not been able to score even 120 runs in 120 balls here. In such a situation, Johnson's fifty matters against bowlers like Shaheen Afridi, Naseem Shah, Mohammad Aamir.
