Shreyas Iyer Overtakes Suryakumar Yadav To Become Highest Run-scorer For India In 2022

In the calendar year 2022, Shreyas Iyer surpassed Suryakumar Yadav as India’s most scorer of runs. In the first test match between India and Bangladesh on Wednesday, the batsman went over the mark.  India was at 112 for 4 when Shreyas Iyer took the field. He is still undefeated at 82 at the end of the first day, with India scoring 278 for the day. 

In this calendar year, Shreyas Iyer has scored 1489 runs for India across all forms, while Suryakumar Yadav has scored 1424 runs. Iyer appears to be on track to end the year as the highest-scoring Indian batter because Suryakumar is almost certainly done playing for India this year.

Shreyas Iyer Looking For A Permanent Place In The Test Team

Shreyas Iyer has played just 38 innings and already scored 1489 runs. Across all forms, he has batted with an average of 47.96. Iyer, an IPL player for Kolkata Knight Riders, has struck 13 fifties and one hundred this year, both of which came in a set of ODI matches against South Africa in October. 

Shreyas Iyer came to crease on Wednesday when India required a partnership, and he did exactly that. Together with Cheteshwar Pujara, the pair added 149 runs for the 5th wicket. Iyer played with utmost control and showed his class with some outstanding hitting in between. Iyer glided along with Pujara and played shots around the ground, showing immense maturity and batting prowess to rescue India from the early stutters.

Pujara (90) lost out on a century, but Iyer (82), who was undefeated, was still on track to reach his milestone. After taking early wickets, India stabilised the innings through to Rishabh Pant’s counterattacking 46 in 45 balls. The day’s final ball resulted in the dismissal of 13-year-old Axar Patel. 

Taijul Islam (3/84) of Bangladesh took three wickets for 81 runs, and Mehidy Hasan Miraz (2/71) and Khaled Ahmed (1/26) also claimed victims.

After deciding to bat, India lost their captain KL Rahul (22), Shubman Gill (20), and Virat Kohli (1) before lunch. India must win both games in the series to keep its chances of making the World Test Championship final alive.
