Most runs in T20Is in 2022

The action of T20 internationals is done and dusted for the year 2022 as we welcome the new year 2023. It was a T20 World Cup year where the white-ball force England stamped their authority yet again by claiming their second T20 WC title down under in November. Some quality batters performed throughout the past 12 months as they stole the show with runs on a consistent basis. 

Let’s take a look at the players with the most runs in T20 internationals in the year 2022:

3. Virat Kohli (781)

The long-awaited 72nd international century for Virat Kohli came in the T20 format in 2022. India’s run-machine machine ended the year as the third-highest run-getter in the T20I format. The right-handed batter scored 781 runs in 20 innings at an average of 55.78 and a strike rate of 138.23. He smashed one century and eight half-centuries with the highest score of 122*, which came against Afghanistan in the Asia Cup.

2. Mohammad Rizwan (996)

Pakistan’s wicketkeeper batter Mohammad Rizwan finished this year above Kohli in the second position. The 30-year-old batter slammed 996 runs, just four short of the landmark 1000 runs, in 25 innings at an average of 45.27 and a strike rate of 122.96. He hammered 10 half-centuries with the highest score of 88*. Notably, Rizwan scored 1326 runs last year as he is now Pakistan’s leading run-scorer in the format for two consecutive years.

1. Suryakumar Yadav (1164)

India’s new sensation Suryakumar Yadav had a remarkable 2022. The prolific batter performed consistently in this format throughout the year as he even reached the no.1 spot in the ICC T20I rankings and still occupies the position. The right-handed batter amassed 1164 runs in 31 innings at a solid average of 46.56 and a deadly strike rate of 187.43. He hammered two centuries and nine half-centuries with the best score of 117.
