The names of the top performers across all forms for 2022 were revealed by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) on December 31. The top Indian players in the game’s longest format were Jasprit Bumrah and Rishabh Pant.

The wicket-keeper hitter averaged 61.81 runs per game while scoring 680 runs in seven matches, with a high of 146 runs. However, in five games, the right-arm fast claimed 22 wickets.

The year 2022 for the Indian men’s cricket squad was inconsistent. The Men in Blue continued to rule bilateral series, but they were unable to deliver the anticipated outcomes in multination competitions. Rohit Sharma’s squad lost both the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup and the Asia Cup T20 despite entering as the No. 1 team in the world and a strong favourite to win. Even in these two instances, they were unable to get past the semifinals.

But several players made an impression during the year with their particular efforts. By being just the second player in T20I history to score more than 1000 runs in a calendar year, Suryakumar Yadav distinguished himself. The 32-year-old ended the year as the top T20I batter in the world.

In the red-ball form of the game, Rishabh Pant was awarded India’s top hitter, while Jasprit Bumrah was chosen as the best bowler. Pant participated in all seven of India’s Test matches and scored the most runs (680). He amassed four fifty-sevens, and two centuries (against South Africa in Cape Town and England in Birmingham).

However, when Rohit was unavailable, Bumrah played five Tests and even led India against England in July. He took 22 wickets in all, which was more than any other Indian bowler.

In the ODI format, Shreyas Iyer has adjudged the best batter while Mohammed Siraj was the best bowler. Iyer scored 724 runs in 17 matches with the highest score of 113 not out while Siraj took 24 wickets in 15 matches in the 50-over format.

Meanwhile, Suryakumar Yadav has been adjudged the best batter in the T20 format after his superb performances in the T20 World Cup as well as various bilateral series and Bhuvneshwar Kumar was termed as the best bowler.
