    Mohammad Rizwan and Haris Rauf included in ICC Men's T20I Team of the Year 2022

    The ICC Team of the Year recognises 11 outstanding individuals who have impressed one and all – be it with the bat, the ball or their all-round exploits in a calendar year.



    Here, we take a look at 11 players who make the cut in the shortest format of the game for men's cricket.

    1. Jos Buttler (c, wk) (England)

    Jos Buttler had an incredible year, both as a player and captain. In 15 matches, Buttler accumulated 462 runs at an explosive strike rate of 160.41, often batting oppositions out of the game in the opening exchanges.

    Following Eoin Morgan's retirement in June 2022, Jos Buttler was appointed limited-overs captain of England and in his very first ICC tournament, he went all the way to get his hands on the ICC Men's T20 World Cup 2022.

    He led by example and was England's highest run-getter at the tournament with 225 runs in six games at a strike rate of 144.23. Buttler solidified England's white-ball domination by winning the T20 World Cup, thus holding both the Men's senior World Cup titles at the same time.


    2. Mohammad Rizwan (Pakistan)

    Mohammad Rizwan continued his form from 2021 into 2022, amassing 996 runs in the year, second only to India dynamo Suryakumar Yadav on the list for most Men's T20I runs.

    Rizwan smashed 10 half-centuries for the year in the shortest format and finished as the joint-highest scorer for Pakistan at the T20 World Cup with 175 runs. Enhancing his reputation as a high-quality anchor at the top, Rizwan holds on to the opening slot alongside Buttler in the ICC T20I Team of the Year for the second year in a row.



    3. Virat Kohli (India)

    2022 was the year Virat Kohli once again showed glimpses of Virat Kohli of old. He took the Asia Cup by storm, finishing as the second-highest run-getter with 276 runs in five games. He also brought an end to his century drought of close to three years with a magnificent century against Afghanistan.

    The form carried over to the T20 World Cup, where Kohli played one of the greatest T20I innings in the heist against Pakistan in Melbourne. The 82* set the tone for the rest of the tournament, where he scored three more fifties and finished as the highest run-scorer with 296 runs.


    4. Suryakumar Yadav (India)

    Suryakumar Yadav had a sensational 2022 in T20Is, becoming just the second batter to score more than 1000 runs in a calendar year in the format. He ended the year as the highest run-getter, scoring 1164, including two hundreds and nine half-centuries while striking at a stunning 187.43,

    SKY displayed his majestic prowess at the T20 World Cup as well, scoring 239 runs while going at a strike rate of 189.68. He finished the year as the No.1 batter in the MRF Tyres ICC Men's T20I Player Rankings.


    5. Glenn Phillips (New Zealand)

    Batting, bowling, fielding - there's nothing Glenn Phillips can't do on the cricket field. The 26-year-old displayed remarkable consistency once again in the shortest format, aggregating 716 runs in 21 matches at a strike rate of 156.33.

    At the T20 World Cup, he set the tone with a gravity-defying catch in the opening game against Australia and then went on to score a century against Sri Lanka. He played a pivotal role in New Zealand's run into the final four, scoring 201 crucial runs while striking at 158.26.


    6. Sikandar Raza (Zimbabwe)

    Sikandar Raza had a stellar year with the bat and also contributed significantly with the ball in T20Is. He was at the centre of all things good that happened for Zimbabwe Cricket during the year, with the all-rounder putting in one brilliant performance after another in the shortest format.

    Not only was he the leading scorer for Zimbabwe with 735 runs but he also led the wickets chart for them, scalping 25 wickets at an excellent economy rate of 6.13.

    He was the Player of the Tournament at T20 World Cup Qualifier B in July and carried his form into the marquee event, winning the Player of the Match thrice, including Zimbabwe's epic win over Pakistan in Perth.


    7. Hardik Pandya (India)

    In 2022, Hardik Pandya came into his own as the all-rounder India have wanted him to be, contributing heavily both with the bat and the ball. He enjoyed his best year by numbers in the Indian colours, scoring 607 runs while also picking up 20 wickets.

    While Virat Kohli's knock against Pakistan at the T20 World Cup will be remembered for the ages, it was Pandya at the other end who helped the rebuild. Later in the tournament, he also displayed his incredible hitting, with his 33-ball 63 taking India to a respectable total against England in the semi-final, though the knock eventually went in vain.


    8. Sam Curran (England)

    The Player of the Tournament at the 2022 T20 World Cup, Sam Curran added another dimension to his bowling by becoming a solid death-overs specialist in England's title-winning campaign. He stepped up in the absence of several key bowlers, picking up 13 wickets from six matches.

    Sam Curran is named the Player of the Final after his 3/12 helped England secure the T20 World Cup title.
    He recorded figures of 5/10 against Afghanistan during the tournament, which was the first five-wicket haul by an England bowler in men's T20Is. Curran saved the best for last, with his spell of 3/12 in the final breaking the back of the Pakistan batting line-up.


    9. Wanindu Hasaranga (Sri Lanka)

    Wanindu Hasaranga continued to be Sri Lanka's talisman in a year where they reigned supreme as the champions of the Asia Cup. He picked up nine crucial wickets in six games at the Asia Cup but at the same time, showed that he can do the damage with the bat, stroking a brilliant 27-ball 37 in the final against Pakistan to rescue his side.

    The wrist-spinner weaved his magic at the T20 World Cup as well, picking up 15 wickets in eight games.


    10. Haris Rauf (Pakistan)

    Pakistan enjoyed a great 2022 as a team – making it to the final of the Asia Cup and later the semi-final of the T20 World Cup – and Haris Rauf was a crucial figure in both of those campaigns. In the calendar year, no Pakistan bowler picked up more wickets than the right-armer (31).

    Rauf impressed everybody with his raw pace and often left batters clueless. In the absence of Shaheen Afridi during the latter half of the year, Pakistan relied heavily on Rauf to lead the bowling attack.

    In the Asia Cup, he was the joint second-highest wicket-taker with eight wickets. Later in the T20 World Cup, Rauf scalped two crucial wickets in the final, including that of Jos Buttler, to give Pakistan a chance but England eventually prevailed.


    11. Josh Little (Ireland)

    The second-highest wicket-taker in the calendar year, Josh Little spearheaded Ireland's attack in 2022 with a great pedigree. The left-arm pacer was a menace with the ball, taking 39 wickets during the calendar year, 11 of which came at the T20 World Cup.

    Though his most memorable performance was his four-for against New Zealand in Belfast in July 2022, his opening spell in Ireland's clash over neighbours England at the T20 World Cup proved to be a match-winning one as they emerged victorious by DLS method.

    Haha.

    RIZWAN.

    They even clarified he’s just an anchor. They already know he’s a terrible T20 cricketer and doesn’t make the team on merit.

    Excluding Rizwan the team is OK.

    RIZWAN has scored a lot of runs, albeit at a pathetic SR.

    So they can’t just ignore him. They did clarify he’s only an anchor.

    You don’t need anchors when even Kohli is there. Who’s a great anchor but also can change the gears, which RIZWAN can’t.

    Also bro Rizwan is the complete opposite of Misbah the batsman.

    Misbah was probably our best T20 hitter. If he wanted, he could hit six sixes in an over, mostly against the spinners.

    RIZWAN is completely pathetic as a batter, he has no ability to change the gears or hit.

    Rizwan being no.1 T20 batsman was a torrid time for him because he couldn’t deliver like the no.1 T20 batsman when called upon

    Now he will have to justify his anchor role as an opener when PCB pick two proper players to deal with the powerplay

    Virat Kohli Among Three Indians In ICC Men's T20I Team Of 2022, No Place For Babar Azam

    Virat Kohli, Suryakumar Yadav and Hardik Pandya are the Indian players who have made cuts into the Men's T20I Team of the Year 2022 announced by the International Cricket Council on Monday. While Kohli has been altogether a different batter since the 2022 Asia Cup -- which was held in the T20 format, Suryakumar has been a batting sensation for the Indian side in the shortest format for quite a long time now. On the other hand, Hardik Pandya provided the team a perfect balance with some superb all-round performance.



    Jos Buttler was picked as the captain of the team announced by ICC, while Mohammad Rizwan was selected as his fellow opener. Glenn Phillips, Sikandar Raza, Sam Curran, Wanindu Hasaranga, Haris Rauf and Joshua Little completed the XI.

    The resurgence of Virat Kohli

    2022 was the year Virat Kohli once again showed glimpses of Virat Kohli of old. He took the Asia Cup by storm, finishing as the second-highest run-getter with 276 runs in five games. He also brought an end to his century drought of close to three years with a magnificent century against Afghanistan.

    SKY's impeccable form

    Suryakumar Yadav had a sensational 2022 in T20Is, becoming just the second batter to score more than 1000 runs in a calendar year in the format. He ended the year as the highest run-getter, scoring 1164, including two hundreds and nine half-centuries while striking at a stunning 187.43,

    SKY displayed his majestic prowess at the T20 World Cup as well, scoring 239 runs while going at a strike rate of 189.68. He finished the year as the No.1 batter in the MRF Tyres ICC Men's T20I Player Rankings.

    Hardik Pandya's all-round show

    In 2022, Hardik Pandya came into his own as the all-rounder India have wanted him to be, contributing heavily both with the bat and the ball. He enjoyed his best year by numbers in the Indian colours, scoring 607 runs while also picking up 20 wickets.

    While Virat Kohli's knock against Pakistan at the T20 World Cup will be remembered for the ages, it was Pandya at the other end who helped the rebuild. Later in the tournament, he also displayed his incredible hitting, with his 33-ball 63 taking India to a respectable total against England in the semi-final, though the knock eventually went in vain.

    The tight slaps he has delivered throughout his career will reverberate through history while he is remembered as the greatest t20 opener in Pakistan's history and an automatic pick in all time XI's.

    How many trophies does he have to show for it ?

    He averaged 25 at SR of 109 in the T20 World Cup. He allowed the RRR to reach 14 in the Asia Cup Final. He and his partner in crime didn't deliver when it mattered and when teams were at full strength.

    The only tight slap delivered were to the fans. Has our cricket regressed so badly that we are celebrating individual milestones and personal rankings over our team's results ?

    This suggests that if we replace Rizwan that Pakistan will be winning World Cups.

    I'd love to see it but i strongly disagree.

    There's more negativity for him than there is for Asif Ali, Haider, Khushdil and any other amount of 'aggressive' players who have completely flopped in the last 2 years.

    The reality is that a number of people incorrectly predicted his downfall, remain incapable of accepting they have been proven wrong, and are now living in some sort of voluntary Rizwan inspired torture chamber as a result as he continues to be at the very top of international cricket.

    Kohli in ICC XI. But rejected from Indian set up. Kohli's T20 career may have been over.
