Virat Kohli's 2022

Kohli took the Asia Cup by storm, finishing as the second-highest run-getter with 276 runs in five games. He also brought an end to his century drought of close to three years with a magnificent century against Afghanistan.

The form carried over to the T20 World Cup, where Kohli played one of the greatest T20I innings in the heist against Pakistan in Melbourne.

The 82 not out set the tone for the rest of the tournament, where he scored three more fifties and finished as the highest run-scorer with 296 runs.
