SKY broke many records last year and also became only the second batter to make more than 1000 runs in a calendar year in the shortest format while ending up as the highest run-getter in 2022. He also hit 68 sixes last year, the most by any batter in 2022.

From opening the inning to play at number 5, Surya has done it all while he made his home at number 4. He also ended up as the third-highest run-getter in the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup with 239 runs in six games with a strike rate of 189.68.
