This has been the year of Suryakumar Yadav without a doubt and the ICC have announced the Indian star as the ICC T20 Player of the Year 2022.

The batter had a stellar year with the bat breaking an array of records and setting a benchmark like never before in the format. 

Surya became the second batter to cross the benchmark of the 1000 runs in T20I this year and completed the year as the highest run-scorer, scoring 1164 runs at a staggering strike-rate of 187.43.

Surya had 68 sixes to his name this season which was the highest record by a single player in a year. The player also scored his maiden century in the format and followed it with another while also scoring 9 half-centuries this season.

The batter was the talking point for India throughout the ICC T20 World Cup 2022 as the player recorded three half-centuries to his name in his six outings for the Men in Blue.

Surya continued his personal exploits as the batter reached the top of the ICC Player rankings dethroning Pakistan's skipper Babar Azam as the number one batter in the format with 890 points to his name.
