    Not sure if he could have played any better than he did; the batting on show was of highest quality, that too at the grandest of the stages.

    Azhar, this inning will stay in our mind for a long long time. Take a bow!

    Azhar has scored more tough runs in six years than Yousuf did in his entire career.


    You're one microscopic cog in his catastrophic plan, designed and directed by his red right hand.

    I guess that the management weren't even aware of that record; don't think they would have declared otherwise.

    Yes. That makes it special and your sharp memory


    In terms of quality that innings doesn't come near this one.


    Azhar managed Starc's 151.9 kph delivery with ease while batting at 200+ which shows his fitness plus high confidence level and belief.

    I rate that innings quite highly because the dukes ball moved around for longer periods and Pakistan were down after a thrashing at OT. The partnership between Azhar and Sami lifted the team again.

    Brilliant batting, this for those haters who said his 300 was against WI in Subcontinent pitches.. ab kya kehna hai aapka??

    All this during a time when his captaincy is under doubt and your chairman gives the most ridiculous statement ever regarding who should be captain of ODI team..

    Also remembering what @Junaids said, Pakistan team will be truly exposed down under

    This innings was of great temperament. But it didn't prove anything new. Azhar is a solid batsman . Best in Pakistan. As for pitches it is a drop in pitch and look for how Sohail and Amir batted.

    Oh so the pitch is easy only except when Kohli gets a 100.. then it becomes a World Class knock... OK

    I remember a few Babar Azam fans saying Azhar looks like a tailender when you compare him to Babar as a batsman who is 10 years younger than him but looks so at ease against bowling..

    This was during the time when Pakistan was playing WI, and Azhar was getting out repeatedly against them.. until he scored a 100 in the final ODI, but even that 100 was dubbed 'against WI' in a dead rubber etc etc.. all those posters were like Azhar should be kicked out ASAP and Fakhar Zaman brought in his place..

    Just because it is Australia doesn't mean it is difficult to score runs. Kohlis best innings according to me is the Wanderers 100 ,when the pitch was juicy and bouncy. Also against Steyn ,morkel and philander in full flow.

    Adelaide one was also tricky cause it was turning sharply. All other centuries in Australia a good batsman can score. I rate his Perth 77 little more .

    I doubt this innings will change people's perspective on Azhar as an ODI batsman, if that's what you're referring to. And rightly so.

    The best overseas innings by a Pakistani batsman I have seen since MoYo's masterclass at Lord's in 2006. A shame that it won't prove to be a match-winning effort.
