Best Cricketers Of 2022

The year 2022 wasn’t great for Indian cricket in general. They lost crucial games that left them without a trophy for yet another year. India’s highly talked about intent-based cricket came a cropper on big occasions. They failed to qualify for the Asia Cup finals. Let us look at 3 indian best cricketers of 2022.

It looked like an aberration but their meek surrender in the 2022 T20 World Cup semifinal raised many eyebrows. Despite such below-par performances, there were few cricketers who stood out this year.

We look at 3 Indian Best Cricketers Of 2022:

#3 Shreyas Iyer

He along with Yuzvendra Chahal are the two unlucky ones to not play a single T20 World Cup yet. Shreyas Iyer was in top form in what was a pretty middling year for Indian batsmen. He has had his fair share of short ball troubles with him getting out in odd ways. But Iyer was able to wade his way through. He was scoring runs across formats with relative ease. Iyer’s form in ODIs especially was standout. 

Memorable performance:

India was up against a solid South African bowling unit in the 2nd ODI. The series was on the line with the Proteas leading 1-0. Iyer calmly led India’s tricky chase scoring a brilliant century. He showed that he has cricketing smarts to fight bigger battles.

#2 Arshdeep Singh

He broke through on the back of consistent IPL showings across the last couple of seasons. Arshdeep Singh quickly came up the ranks after making his India debut in the series against England in England. He bowled incisive new ball spells picking up wickets in the powerplay.

It was not an area where he specialized in the IPL where he largely bowled at the death. But he donned all roles with aplomb in Indian colours. He soon became India’s leader of the attack in the T20 World Cup.

Memorable performance:

Arshdeep Singh was playing his first World Cup game. The opponents were arch-rivals Pakistan. He dismissed Pakistani captain, Babar Azam with the very first ball he bowled in the World Cup. Singh’s 3-wicket haul was on the highlight reel of India’s campaign.

#1 Suryakumar Yadav

He is miles ahead of any T20I batter in world cricket currently. Suryakumar Yadav is a complete vibe in T20Is. He is the quintessential modern-day 360-degree batter. SKY as he is popularly called has made the number four spot his own. He was the standout batter in the T20 World Cup. SKY notched up two centuries this year. His ability to strike at more than 180 on a consistent basis makes him unique.

Memorable performance:

It was the year of SKY in T20Is. His centuries against both England and New Zealand were special. But his counterattacking century against South Africa on a wicket like Perth makes it his most memorable performance this year.
