Virat Kohli hit two centuries in white-ball cricket in 2022. He smashed his maiden T20I hundred against Afghanistan in the Asia Cup 2022, while his ODI ton came in the third and final ODI against Bangladesh.
He broke his century drought of three years in international cricket. Virat finished the ICC T20 World Cup as the highest run-scorer in Australia.
However, he wasn’t able to get going in Test cricket. In the last Test series in Bangladesh, he was easily dismissed by rival bowlers.
Meanwhile, former India player Aakash Chopra hailed Virat for his batting in the shortest format of the game. He picked Suryakumar Yadav, Mohammad Rizwan, Virat Kohli, Sikandar Raza and Devon Conway as his top 5 batters in 2022.
Chopra excluded Pakistan captain Babar Azam despite him being the fifth highest run-getter in T20Is in 2022.
“Sorry, I can’t take Babar Azam in my team. He should have been the number 5 batter but I am not taking him. He accumulated 735 runs in 26 matches and his average was only 32 and strike rate 123. Devon Conway was a far better option. He could have become the number one batter had he played more matches,” he said.
