Surya Kumar Yadav need 8 runs to become highest run scorer for India in T20s in a calendar year

Surya Kumar Yadav broke the record for most runs scored in a T20I match in 2022 in the series decider against Australia this week. Rising on his sheer talent, the youngster is now on the way to become the highest T20 run scorer for India in a calendar year. Surya in his last game played a hard-hitting 69 runs in just 36 balls during the game.

Surya has scored 682 runs this year in 20 games played in the shortest format. He averages 37.88 runs per game. With the massive wall of runs he just needs 8 more runs this year. So that he becomes the highest T20 run scorer for India in a calendar year. Presently the record is held by Shikhar Dhawan who made 689 T20 runs in the year 2018. This year Yadav has117 as his highest personal score. His bat produced a century and four half-centuries. The striking percentage for Suryakumar is a commendable 182.84.

He is followed by Pakistan’s star hitter Mohammad Rizwan (556) Dipendra Singh Airee of Nepal (626). Followed by Sabawoon Davizi of the Czech Republic (612), and West Indies captain Nicholas Pooran (553). This year, the batter has displayed a great deal of consistency. Additionally, comes in third place among batters in the ICC Men’s T20I Rankings. Above him are Pakistan’s Rizwan and South Africa’s Aiden Markram.

Surya- India’s best T20 batter at present?

Many even feel that Surya Kumar Yadav is India’s best batter in the shortest format and the rest of the batting unit needs to revolve around him. SKY is hailed as being India’s best all-around batter and has no obvious weaknesses. In reality, he’s one of the best batters in the world at scheming the field, spotting openings, and confusing the bowlers. Suryakumar has a remarkable talent at hitting the same ball in numerous directions with what appears like an extra fraction of a second at his skill set.

Taking of the record of most T20 runs in a calendar year is held by Mohammed Rizwan. So given that Suryakumar Yadav bats at number 4 for India, it is going to be really difficult for him to break Rizwan’s record, for which Suryakumar still needs 644 runs in about a dozen games left this year. But lets hope for the best and hope Surya to score as many centuries in the T20 world cup in Australia.
