Indian team started the year by a big change in management with Rohit Sharma and Rahul Dravid leading the much-changed teams across formats. In terms of trophies, the Men in Blue struggled to make a big impact as they failed to qualify for the finals of the 2022 Asia Cup and the T20 World Cup 2022. Compared to white-ball cricket, India’s performance in red-ball was impressive, as they are in strong position to qualify for the World Test Championship (WTC) Final.

But despite team’s below expectation outings, fans witnessed some individual brilliances throughout the year. The biggest positive from year 2022 was Virat Kohli breaking his century drought after 1021 days. The former captain smashed his first-ever T20I hundred during the 2022 Asia Cup clash against Afghanistan and ended his ODI campaign with a century against Bangladesh.

The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) revealed India’s best performers in all three formats on Saturday (December 31). As expected, Suryakumar Yadav has been named as India’s best batter in T20I cricket in 2022 by BCCI. Suryakumar is leading the scoring chart in T20I cricket in 2022 with 1164 runs at a strike rate of 187.43 with the help of two hundreds and nine half-centuries.

For a best bowler in T20Is in 2022, BCCI picked the veteran medium-pace bolwer Bhuvneshwar Kumar, who took the highest 37 wickets at an impressive economy rate of 6.98. But despite his consistently impressive spells, Bhuvneshwar has been ignored for the upcoming T20Is against Sri Lanka.

Jasprit Bumrah and Mohammed Siraj selected as India’s best bowlers in 2022

In ODIs, BCCI picked in-form Shreyas Iyer as India’s best batter in 2022. Shreyas is leading run-scorer for Indian across formats this year and is also leading the scoring chart in ODIs with 724 runs from 15 innings at average of 55.69 with the help of one hundred and six fifties. BCCI selected right-arm pacer Mohammed Siraj as India’s best bowler in ODIs in 2022, who took 24 wickets from 15 innings at an economy rate of 4.62.

In red-ball cricket, the leading run-scorer Rishabh Pant has been selected as India’s best batter. Pant, who was crucial in India’s 0-2 Test series win against Bangladesh in their last series this year, scored 680 runs from 12 innings at an average of 61.81, and was only Indian cricketer to score 500-plus runs in Tests this year. Jasprit Bumrah has been selected as India’s best Test bowler for 2022, who is leading the bowling chart with 22 wickets 10 innings, despite having missed the Bangladesh tour with an injury.
