Indian batsman Suryakumar Yadav was named the 2022 ICC T20I Cricketer of the Year after an outstanding season with the bat in the shortest form of play.
Surya and Virat Kohli were the only two Indian players named in the 2022 ICC T20I Team of the Year.
Last year, Surya, who topped the T20Is with a career high of 890 points, scored 1,164 points with an average of 46.56 points in 31 matches in 209 half-centuries.
He posted an outrageous 187.43 winning percentage all last year.
He was the highest scorer in last year’s T20Is and became only the second player to score over 1,000 runs in a year in T20Is, after Pakistan’s Mohammad Rizwan.
Yadav made an astounding 68 sixes on the year, the most in the history of the format.

Meanwhile, Australian all-rounder Tahlia McGrath won the 2022 Women’s T20I Cricketer of the Year award.
McGrath scored 435 runs from 16 matches at an average of 62.14 and took 13 wickets the previous year.
On her way to winning the coveted ICC Women’s T20I Cricketer of the Year award, she saw competition from stunning Indian opener Smriti Mandhana, Pakistan’s ever-reliable all-rounder Nida Dar and New Zealand captain Sophie Devine.
