Key insights from the above stat

Babar Azam, the Pakistani skipper, is in tremendous form with the bat for his team across formats. He is performing consistently whenever his team needs him the most.

Babar’s teammate, Mohammad Rizwan, also finds him on this list. Both of them have contributed to winning crucial matches for Pakistan. Rizwan and Babar are also on the list of players with the most runs in the 2020s in T20Is.

Virat Kohli, the former Indian captain, had poor outings in 2020 and 2021, but since 2022 he has been back in form. He has scored some memorable centuries across formats, including a maiden century in the T20I format against Afghanistan in the Asia Cup 2022.

England’s Joe Root is piling up runs for his team in Test format. Even though he played his last T20I in 2019 and his last ODI match in July 2022, he is making his mark in the longest format.

Since making his debut in 2020, New Zealand’s opener Devon Conway has created a significant impact with his bat across all formats. Conway had a dream Test debut as he scored a double century (200) against England at Lord’s in 2021.

P.S. I will keep updating the list on a regular basis. See ya!
