ICC NO. 1 T20 Batsman Suryakumar Yadav

2 min readNov 6, 2022


Suryakumar, India’s new run machine, is as expected dominating the T20 World Cup, having already scored two half-centuries in the first three games.

Yadav’s 61-ball innings against Bangladesh were extremely significant. Other Indian batters in the game had some trouble. In 20 overs, the team managed to post a respectable 186 under Kumar’s steady leadership. Indian star batter Suryakumar Yadav edged past Mohammad Rizwan to become the highest-ranked T20 batter in the world.

Best T20 Batsman in the current world

ICC revealed the latest ICC ranking on Friday and we saw that Suryakumar is now the №1 T20 batsman. With 1006 runs, including a lot, the right-handed batsman is now the T20Is’ top run-scorer in 2022.

Fastest 1000 Runs Scorer in a Year

During the Super 12 match against Zimbabwe on Sunday at the Melbourne Cricket Ground, Suryakumar Yadav became the first Indian and just the second player in the world to score 1000 runs or more in a calendar year. India reached 186/5 thanks to a 25-ball 61 from Suryakumar. He had a 244 per cent strike rate, hitting four sixes and six fours!

After Mohammad Rizwan, Suryakumar became just the second player to accomplish the feat. In 2021, Rizwan scored 1326 runs.

Suryakumar has one T20I century and an incredible 11 half-centuries to his credit, but what makes him stand out is his batting strike rate of over 193.96, his ability to score in all areas of the field, and his capacity to be a 360-degree player.

Recent Touch of Form

Over the past few months, Suryakumar has been striking all the right notes. He was playing well throughout the domestic season against Australia and South Africa, and he is doing so again at the current T20 World Cup. Suryakumar reeled off back-to-back half-centuries against the Netherlands and South Africa following a poor score against Pakistan (15).

Suryakumar’s achievement falls with the day his India teammate Virat Kohli set a new record for most runs scored in a T20 World Cup, surpassing Sri Lankan legend Mahela Jayawardene’s 1016 runs from 31 games.
