From Suryakumar Yadav to Babar Azam: Top 10 T20I Scorers in 2022
The year 2022 witnessed a lot of T20I matches thanks to bilateral series between different sides and two major tournaments in the form of the Asia cup and the T20 World Cup. This year’s first series was played between Ireland and the West Indies, while the last was a Quadrangular Series between member countries: Malaysia, Bahrain, Qatar and Singapore.
Many hitters rocked the charts with some memorable hits, but a few managed to continue their consistent run scores throughout the year. Indian batting sensation Suryakumar Yadav reached the No. 1 spot in the T20I ranking and also finished 2022 as the highest points scorer.
The Pune-born cricketer played 31 T20Is and collected 1164 runs at an impressive average of 46.56, using two hundred and nine and a half centuries, 117 of which was his best score. Like Surya, teammate Virat Kohli also gained attention when he found his lost mojo.
Kohli in particular got his form during the Asia Cup when he beat his first century in the shortest format in a match against Afghanistan. The former India skipper showed his superior class in the T20 World Cup, where he finished as the first points scorer. Overall, the right-handed hitter finished as the third-highest run-catcher in 2022 with 781 runs to his credit, including a century and eight fifties.
