Four Indians In ICC Women’s T20 Team Of The Year 2022. The ICC Women’s T20I Team of the Year honors the 11 great players that have dazzled everyone in 2022, whether it be with their bat, ball, or all-around prowess.
We examine the 11 outstanding players that excelled in women’s T20Is in 2022.
Four Indians In ICC Women’s T20 Team Of The Year 2022
Smriti Mandhana, the top batswoman for India, had a fantastic year, scoring 594 runs at a strike rate of 133.48 and an average of 35.00. In 21 innings during the year, she scored five half-centuries, including one against Sri Lanka in the Women’s Asia Cup final in October.
In a run chase of 66, Mandhana scored an undefeated 51 off just 25 balls, accounting for more than 70% of the team’s runs. Additionally, she scored two half-centuries at the Birmingham Commonwealth Games, assisting India in victories over Pakistan and England, respectively. In women’s T20Is, she finished as the year’s fourth-highest run scorer.
Mooney only participated in 14 T20Is in 2022, but she was at the top of her game, averaging 56.12 and striking out at a rate of 134.43. Mooney extended her momentum into the India series, striking two half-centuries at the start of the bilaterals in sub-continental conditions. Mooney was the top scorer for the Australians against India in the Commonwealth Games final in Birmingham, where her team won the Gold. Mooney had 61 off 41 balls.
Her results are even more amazing when you consider that at the beginning of the India series, she was barely healthy enough to take the field.
Sophie Devine once again dominated the competition with 389 runs and 13 wickets during the year. At the Commonwealth Games, the New Zealand batsman scored half-century against two of the top teams, Australia and England. Having also taken six wickets with the ball, she concluded the competition as the second-highest run scorer in the tournament, trailing only Mooney. Devine, who finished the year with the joint-second-most wickets and the most runs, was once again a cornerstone for New Zealand.
Gardner joins this team with a stellar strike rate of 152.11 in the 216 runs she made over the year. It is among the top years ever for a hitter in a women’s game, averaging 72 while doing so.
Gardner became just the third player in women’s T20Is to score over 200 runs in a calendar year in the format while averaging over 50 and striking at a rate of at least 150. She did this by imitating Alyssa Healy in 2019 and Rachael Haynes in 2018. Gardner only had seven at-bats but produced two half-centuries.
The greatest of the bunch happened at the Brabourne Stadium against India, where she used an unbeaten 66 off just 32 balls to push the team from 55/3 to 196.
Tahlia McGrath was a no-brainer for the team of the year after averaging over 60 with the bat and claiming 13 wickets with the ball in T20Is throughout the year.
The Australian all-rounder scored 435 runs in T20Is for the year, striking at a remarkable pace of 145.0 with four half-centuries in 11 knocks, or almost one every third innings, and scoring at a rate of 145.0.
Her best performance came against England at the beginning of the year when, after taking 3/26 with the ball earlier in the game, she hit an unbeaten 91 off just 49 balls in the first T20I of the women’s Ashes, one of the all-time best all-around performances in women’s T20Is.
Nida Dar, a senior off-spinner for Pakistan, had one of her greatest bowling years in 2022, taking 15 wickets in T20Is at an average of 18.33 and an economy rate of 5.50. Dar only failed to pick up a wicket in three of her 14 T20I matches while consistently contributing when she took the pitch. The all-rounder was at her best when Pakistan recorded a rare victory over India in the Women’s Asia Cup when she struck 56* off 37 balls with the bat and took 2/23 with the ball to clinch Player of the Match honors.
The off-29 spinner’s wickets were the joint-third-most by a bowler in women’s T20Is for the entire year. Deepti played reasonably well at bat and averaged 18.55 with the ball while also bowling at an economy rate of just over six.
She averaged 37 runs per game while scoring 370 runs in T20Is for the season. Her strike rate for the format was 136.02, which was significantly higher than her career average of 106.39 runs per game. She was named Player of the Tournament at the Women’s Asia Cup in Bangladesh thanks to her 13 wickets. In the championship match versus Sri Lanka, she set the tone by bowling a sparing stint of 4-0-7-0 after taking the new ball.

Young gun Richa Ghosh stood out for India in the format with a strike rate of above 150 for the year. The wicketkeeper-batter played in 18 games, scoring 259 runs, hitting 13 sixes, and displaying amazing talent at the bottom of the order. Her best performance was against Australia at Brabourne, where she hit an unbeaten 40 in just 19 balls to help India to a respectable total.
The No. 1 ranked T20I spinner in the women’s game had another outstanding season in the format, taking 19 wickets in 17 T20Is. Ecclestone earned the Player of the Match award twice in the course of the year, once in the Derby match against South Africa when she scored 33* off just 12 balls with the bat before taking two wickets, and once in the Bristol match against India when her 3/25 dismantled India’s lower middle order.
Inoka Ranaweera, a left-arm orthodox spinner for Sri Lanka, had a fantastic year with the ball. He finished the year with 27 wickets in 19 T20Is, averaged 13.85 with the ball, and gave up runs at a 5.75 economy rate.
In four of the 19 T20Is she played in the year, she got three or more wickets, with her highest being 4/7 against Bangladesh in Sylhet for the Women’s Asia Cup. Her contribution helped Sri Lanka defeat Bangladesh by three runs in the match.
Renuka was a notable bowler for her squad with 22 T20I wickets at an average of 23.95 and an economy rate of 6.50. Renuka received a lot of attention this year as one of the contenders for the prestigious ICC Women’s Emerging Cricketer of the Year award.
Eight wickets were taken by Renuka during the seven T20I matches she played in during the year, and her performances at the Commonwealth Games and Asia Cup demonstrated that she is no coward when it comes to tournament play. In 11 games, she took 17 wickets for an economy of just 5.21. Her most impressive performance was a thrilling spell of 4/18, which included 16 dot balls, against the Australians.
