Not just in the top ten entries, Suryakumar Yadav has the best strike rate for any player who has more than 500 runs in the format this year. Such is the year he is having as the leading run-scorer in the format. The new No. 1 T20 batter is also placed strongly in the overall run-scorer in all three formats combined in 2022.
Mohammad Rizwan, the leading run scorer in the format in the previous year (2021), also stands top only behind Yadav in the above list.
Both Rizwan (in 2021) and Surya, along with the Pakistani captain, Babar Azam (in 2021), have cracked the feat of scoring 10 or more 50+ scores in a calendar year. Find the top ten batters with the most 50+ scores in a year here.

He is the leading run-scorer in the tournament.
The other players who have had a great World Cup campaign, Pathum Nissanka (SL) and Sikandar Raza (ZIM), also find places in the above list.
