India vs Australia

India secured an emphatic and morale-boosting 2-1 victory over Australia in their series ahead of the T20 World Cup in Australia next month.

A late bloomer, Suryakumar Yadav has become a vital cog in India's batting lineup in the last two years, especially at the top.

Suryakumar has the most runs for India in T20 international cricket. He is closing in on a new record — the Most T20I runs for India in a year!

Calendar year stats

In 2018, India's veteran opening batter Shikhar Dhawan scored 689 runs. It is still the most runs scored by a batter in T20Is in a single year.

The 32-year-old who has cemented his place in the team is now just seven runs behind Dhawan. He has scored 682 runs this year.

Virat Kohli

It is no surprise that third on this list is Virat Kohli, who had a brilliant 2016 wherein he was the best batter in the world. He scored 641 T20I runs.

The current team India skipper Rohit Sharma occupies three spots on this list. In 2018, he scored 590 T20I runs, a ways behind Dhawan.
