Suryakumar Yadav Featured In ICC Men’s T20I Cricketer Of The Year 2022 Nominees

Dubai: After having sensational the shortest format of the games in 2022, Indian batter Suryakumar Yadav has been shortlisted for the ICC Men’s T20I Cricketer of the Year 2022 award.

Suryakumar is the only Indian player to get the nomination alongside Sikandar Raza, Sam Curran and Mohammad Rizwan, players that have had an exemplary 2022.

Yadav has become just the second batter to score more than 1000 runs in a year in the format.

He ended the year as the highest run-getter, scoring 1164 runs at a ridiculous strike rate of 187.43.

His tally of 68 sixes in the calendar year in T20Is is the highest anyone has recorded in the format in a year by a fair distance.

Yadav’s incredible consistency in the format is reflected in his average which stood in the mid-40s. With two hundreds and nine half-centuries in the year, Yadav was the standout men’s T20I batter.

In the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup in Australia, Yadav recorded three fifties in six innings, averaging nearly 60 in the tournament while going at a strike rate of 189.68.

He continued his stellar year after the tournament too, recording his second hundred in T20Is in the year in the bilateral series in New Zealand. The year also saw Yadav become the top-ranked MF Tyres ICC Men’s T20I Player Rankings, achieving a career-high 890 rating points.

Memorable performance

In what was an outstanding year for Yadav in T20Is, there were quite a few eye-catching performances. His maiden T20I hundred, a stunning 117 off 55 balls against England in Nottingham, however, stood out.

From 31/3 in a run chase of 216, Yadav lifted India with his outrageous stroke-making, giving the visitors a chance at chasing down the target. His dismissal sealed India’s hopes, but he put the team within touching distance of what would have been an incredible win.
