The fact that Surya hit 68 sixes in 2022 tells you how dangerous he was with the bat in the year in T20Is. 68 is the most sixes anyone has hit in a calendar year. He smashed two T20I hundreds alongwith 9 half-centuries.

SKY had a fabulous 2022 ICC Men’s T20 World Cup in which he scored three fifties in 6 innings and averaged 60 while playing at a ridiculous average of 189.68. His array of shots made the great Virat Kohli call one of his innings as ‘video-game’ like. 

Surya recorded his second ton vs New Zealand to finish the year. In the process, he became the top-ranked batter  in the format too with a career-best 890 points. Currently, he sits at the top with 902 points. 

His first ton vs England in Nottingham when he smashed 117 off just 55 balls. This was probably his best knock of the year as it came against T20 World Champions and one of the finest white-ball teams England.

His brilliant innings almsot took India to a phenomenal victory from a dire position of 31 for 3 while chasing a massive 216-run target. Surya will hope to continue doing the same job for India in the years to come.
