Stars Of The World Cup: Players Who Light Up The Worldcup 2022 On Fire

The bowling, batting, and fielding abilities of a number of players helped them achieve dominance in the worldcup 2022. According to cricket news, the article picks a team of 11 players who have done well in every part of the game, whether it’s with the bat, the ball, or both, to honor their achievements over the past year.

  • This article looks at the shortest form of cricket for men and the 11 players who cut.

  1. Jos Buttler (England) –

Jos Buttler did a great job in 2018 as a player and as captain. Buttler scored 462 runs in 15 games and had a strike rate of 160.41, which was so fast that his opponents were often out of the game in the first few overs.

When Eoin Morgan retired in June 2022, Jos Buttler took over as England’s limited-overs captain. In his first ICC match, the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2022, he led his team to victory.

He set the tone for the team and finished the tournament with 225 runs at a strike rate of 144.23 in six games, which was the most of any English player. By winning the T20 World Cup, Buttler made sure that England would continue to be the best at white-ball cricket and that both the T20 and Men’s Senior World Cups would be held at the same time.

  1. Mohd Rizwan (Pak) –

The excellent job he¬†accomplished in 2021 and 2022 was continued. He finished second in Men’s T20I history with 996 runs, just behind India’s Suryakumar Yadav.

This year, Rizwan achieved ten half-centuries in the shortest format. In the T20 World Cup, he also contributed 175 runs for Pakistan, which tied for the most of any player from that nation. For the last two years in a row, Rizwan and Buttler have started the batting for the ICC T20I Team of the Year. As a result, Rizwan is now a top-tier opener.

  1. Virat Kohli (India) –

Virat Kohli started to act like the old Virat Kohli in 2022. He was the second-highest scorer in the Asia Cup, with 276 runs in only five games. With his amazing century against Afghanistan, he ended a century drought that had been going on for almost three years.

Kohli kept up his good form at the T20 World Cup. Against Pakistan in Melbourne, he had one of the best T20I innings ever. After that 82*, he hit three more fifties. He ended up with 296 runs, which made him the tournament’s top run scorer.

  1. Suryakumar Yadav (Ind) –

Suryakumar Yadav excelled in the Twenty20 Internationals in 2022. In this format, he became only the second player in history to surpass 1000 runs in a single calendar year. He finished the year with a remarkable batting average of 187.43, 1164 runs, including 219 half-centuries.

  1. Glenn Phillips (NZ) –

In cricket, Glenn Phillips is capable of anything. In the shortest format, the Twenty Six year-old was quite reliable, scoring 716 runs in 21 games with a strike rate of 156.33.

His incredible catch against Australia in the first T20 World Cup match and his century against Sri Lanka set the tone for the remaining matches. He scored 201 runs at an average of 158.26, which was a major factor in New Zealand’s advancement to the semifinals.

  1. Sikandar Raza (Zimbabwe) –

Even though he is better known for being a good batter, Sikandar Raza did a lot of good things with the ball this year in Twenty20 Internationals. His great play in the shortest format put him at the center of everything good that happened for Zimbabwe Cricket during the year.

  1. Hardik Pandya (India) –

Hardik Pandya finally became the all-around player India had hoped for in 2022. He made important contributions with both the bat and the ball. He had his best year in terms of statistics when he played for India. He got 607 runs and 20 wickets.

After Virat Kohli’s historic innings against Pakistan in the T20 World Cup, it was Pandya at the other end who helped the team get back on track. Later in the tournament, he showed off his great hitting again by getting 63 runs off of only 33 balls to help India beat England in the semi-finals with a good score.

  1. Sam Curran (England) –

Sam Curran, England’s best bowler, and the 2022 Twenty20 World Cup’s Most Valuable Player improved his game by becoming a reliable “death-overs specialist.” He stepped up when many important bowlers were missing and took 13 wickets in only six games.

When he did it against Afghanistan, it was the first time an England bowler had gotten five wickets in a Twenty20 International match for the men. In the final, when it mattered most, Curran bowled a devastating spell. He got 3/12, which wiped out Pakistan’s batting order.

  1. Wanindu Hasaranga (Sri Lanka) –

According to cricket news today, Sri Lanka won the Asia Cup the year while Wanindu Hasaranga was still their most important player. In the final against Pakistan, he saved his team with a great 27-ball score of 37. He also took nine key wickets in six games during the Asia Cup.

Even in the Twenty20 World Cup, where he played only eight games, the wrist-spinner was a force to be reckoned with. He took 15 wickets.

  1. Haris Rauf (Pakistan) –

Haris Rauf was a key member of Pakistan’s 2022 team, which won the Asia Cup and made it to the semi-finals of the T20 World Cup. No other bowler from Pakistan had a better year than the right-arm, who took a total of 148 wickets (31).

Rauf’s raw speed impressed onlookers and often made it hard for batters to know what to do. Shaheen Afridi missed most of the second half of the season, so Rauf was mostly in charge of Pakistan’s bowling attack.

  1. Josh Little (Ireland) –

Josh Little, who was in charge of Ireland’s attack in 2022, took the second most wickets that year. The left-handed speedster was a real threat with the ball. He took 39 catches in all competitions during the year, including 11 at the Twenty20 World Cup.
