KL Rahul, once again, scored over 600 runs in the 2022 edition of the Indian T20 League. He has maintained the consistency with the runs but couldn’t take Lucknow in the final.
The highest run-getter in the Indian T20 League 2022, Jos Buttler occupies the number five position. He has wreaked havoc for Rajasthan and helped the team reach the playoffs. Buttler has over 700 runs this season and could reach the 800-run mark if Rajasthan reach the final.
One of the most impressive players in the competition, Hardik Pandya takes the 5th position. He has impressed one and all with both captaincy and his individual performances. The Indian all-rounder has scored the most runs for his franchise and sits at 5th position, overall.
Former Indian skipper, Virat Kohli takes the number 3 spot, while the current Indian skipper occupies the number two spot on the list. Despite enduring lean run with the bat, the duo is among the top three positions in the list.
Legendary former Indian skipper, Mahendra Singh Dhoni continues to be at the top of the list. Fans would be happy for the fact that he will be leading Chennai in the next edition of the Indian T20 League as well. It will be interesting to see how he fares with the bat and as a captain next season.
