With 225 runs in six games and a strike rate of 144.23, he set the bar high for England and the competition. By winning the T20 World Cup, Buttler gave England a firm grip on the white-ball throne and simultaneously held both of the Men’s Senior World Cup championships.
Mohammad Rizwan maintained his form from 2021 to 2022, scoring 996 runs in the year, which places him second on the list for most Men’s T20I runs behind India dynamo Suryakumar Yadav.

Rizwan concluded the T20 World Cup as Pakistan’s joint-highest scorer with 175 runs after smashing 10 half-centuries in the shortest format for the year. Rizwan continues to bat first alongside Buttler in the ICC T20I Team of the Year for the second consecutive year, further solidifying his status as a top-tier anchor.
The year Virat Kohli began to resemble the Virat Kohli of old was 2022. With 276 runs in five games, he finished as the second-highest run-scorer at the Asia Cup. With a superb century against Afghanistan, he also ended an almost three-year century drought.
In Melbourne, against Pakistan, Kohli scored one of the best T20I centuries ever, continuing his momentum into the T20 World Cup. He scored three more fifties after the 82* to end with 296 runs, the most runs scored in the entire event.

In T20Is, Suryakumar Yadav had a great 2022 and became just the second player to surpass 1000 runs in a calendar year. He scored 1164 runs, including two hundreds and nine half-centuries, finishing the year as the top run scorer. His average at the plate was an astounding 187.43.
At the T20 World Cup, SKY once again showed off his spectacular prowess by scoring 239 runs at a strike rate of 189.68. The MRF Tyres ICC Men’s T20I Player Rankings ranked him as the year’s top hitter at the end of the year.
There is nothing Glenn Phillips can’t accomplish on a cricket field, including batting, bowling, and fielding. Again exhibiting exceptional consistency in the shortest format, the 26-year-old amassed 716 runs in 21 matches at a strike rate of 156.33.
He set the tone for the T20 World Cup with a weightless catch against Australia in the opening match before scoring a century against Sri Lanka. He contributed significantly to New Zealand’s march to the last four by hitting 201 important runs with a strike rate of 158.26.
Sikandar Raza had a fantastic season both with the bat and the ball in T20 Internationals. With the all-rounder turning in one outstanding performance after another in the shortest format, he was at the centre of everything positive that occurred for Zimbabwe Cricket throughout the year.
He not only had the most runs scored for Zimbabwe (735), but he also had the most wickets taken (25), with a fantastic economy rate of 6.13.
He won Player of the Match three times, including in Zimbabwe’s thrilling victory against Pakistan in Perth, and was the Player of the Tournament at the T20 World Cup Qualifier B in July.
Hardik Pandya finally developed into the all-around player India expected him to be in 2022, making significant contributions with both the bat and the ball. In the Indian colours, he had his finest year statistically, amassing 607 runs and taking 20 wickets.
While Virat Kohli’s T20 World Cup innings against Pakistan will go down in history, it was Pandya at the other end who contributed to the recovery. Later in the competition, he also showed off his tremendous hitting, as his 33-ball 63 against England in the semifinal lifted India to a decent score, although the innings ultimately ended in failure.
Sam Curran, the 2022 T20 World Cup’s Player of the Tournament, gave his bowling a new dimension by developing into a reliable expert in the last overs during England’s championship run. In the absence of numerous important bowlers, he stepped up, taking 13 wickets from six games.
The first five-wicket haul by an England bowler in men’s T20Is came during the tournament when he recorded statistics of 5/10 against Afghanistan. Curran left the best for last, shattering the Pakistani batting order with a closing spell of 3/12.
In a year in which Sri Lanka ruled supreme as the Asia Cup champions, Wanindu Hasaranga persisted as the nation’s guardian angel. At the Asia Cup, he took nine significant wickets in six games, but he also demonstrated that he can cause damage with the bat by smashing a magnificent 27-ball 37 against Pakistan in the championship game to save his team.
The wrist-spinner worked his magic in eight games at the T20 World Cup, taking 15 wickets.
Haris Rauf played a significant role in both of Pakistan’s 2022 campaigns, which saw the side go to the semi-final of the T20 World Cup and the final of the Asia Cup. The right-armer took more wickets in the year than any other Pakistani bowler (31).
Rauf’s raw pace dazzled everyone and frequently left hitters perplexed. Pakistan primarily relied on Rauf to spearhead the bowling attack during the second half of the year because Shaheen Afridi was out.
He shared the second-highest wicket total in the Asia Cup with eight wickets. Rauf took two significant wickets in the final of the T20 World Cup, including Jos Buttler’s, to give Pakistan a chance, although England ultimately won.
Josh Little, who finished 2022 as the second-highest wicket-taker for the year, led Ireland’s offence with a strong resume. With the ball, the left-arm pacer proved a danger, collecting 39 wickets in the year, 11 of which came at the T20 World Cup.
Although his four-for against New Zealand in Belfast in July 2022 remains his most enduring performance, his opening spell in Ireland’s encounter against England at the T20 World Cup proved to be a match-winning one as they prevailed by the DLS method.
