Former India skipper Virat Kohli made history by becoming the first cricketer in history to earn a place in all three ICC teams of the year (Test, ODI and T20I).
The Indian batsman was named in the 2022 ICC T20I Team for the first time since the cricket’s governing body introduced the honorary award in 2022.
In addition to Kohli, Suryakumar Yadav and Hardik Pandya have also been named in the 2022 ICC T20I squad. England captain Jos Buttler has been named captain of this team.
It should be noted that Kohli has made three appearances in ICC Test Team of The Year (2017, 2018 and 2019), six times in ODI Team of The Year (2012, 2014, 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019) and once in T20I Team ( 2022).
Kohli put in an outstanding performance in the T20 World Cup, hitting an unbeaten 82 against Pakistan to help India achieve a memorable victory. Kohli scored 296 points in the tournament to finish as the leading point scorer in the showpiece.
