Notable records broken by Indian cricketers in 2022

Leading run-scorer in T20 World Cup

Indian batter Virat Kohli regained his mojo in white-ball cricket. Kohli now has the most runs in ICC T20 World Cup history (1,141 in 27 games). He displaced Sri Lanka's Mahela Jayawardene (1,016).

Kohli now has the most runs by an Indian in the ICC World Cup knockouts (ODIs and T20Is). Kohli, who owns 361 runs, surpassed Sachin Tendulkar (339) in this regard.

Maiden T20I ton; fastest to 24,000 international runs

Kohli slammed a 61-ball 122* against Afghanistan at the Asia Cup 2022, his maiden T20I century. Kohli (522 innings) also became the fastest to 24,000 runs, breaking Tendulkar's record (543 innings).

Most Powerplay wickets in a calendar year (T20Is)

Bhuvneshwar Kumar aced the Powerplay in T20Is this year. He now has the most T20I wickets by a bowler in this phase in a calendar year (21). He averaged 18.00 (economy rate of 5.47).

Pant touched the 650-run mark in Tests for the second consecutive year. He is the first Indian wicket-keeper to do so. Pant scored 748 runs from 12 Tests last year, while he amassed 680 runs in 2022.
