He shared a 192-run stand with Fawad Alam to help Karachi Whites win the title. In 9 first-class matches, Aziz has scored 233 runs at 19.41 with the top score of 84, his only half-century. He has also taken 3 wickets at 18.33 with his best bowling figures of 1/8. In 31 List A games, Aziz has made 768 runs at 38.40 with one ton and 5 fifties, including the top score of 101 not out.

In what was arguably his most sensational performance to date, Danish Aziz scored a 47-ball 72 during a 77-run stand for the 8th wicket with Anwar Ali in the National T20 Cup in October 2020 to propel Sindh to an unlikely win versus Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. Set to score 139 to win, Sindh lost early wickets and when Danish took guard, the scorecard read 32/4. They lost three more wickets for the addition of only two runs to be placed at a precarious 34/7 when Danish launched a blistering attack on the KP bowlers. Sindh needed 15 off the last 3 balls; Danish got 10 in the next two deliveries. Needing five off the last ball, Aziz launched it for a massive six to bring Sindh into contention for a place in the semifinals.
