Suryakumar entered the list for the most T20I runs for India in a calendar year, but can he overtake the three on top?
Here is a list he might yet dominate!

Can he break this record?

The India opener was a reliable bet in the T20I format for India, forming a deadly partnership with Rohit Sharma at the top of India's batting line-up. 

Shikhar Dhawan: 689 runs 2018

Second on the list is Virat Kohli, who scored 641 T20I runs for India in 2016 alone! It was one of Kohli's best years with the bat for India.

Virat Kohli: 641 runs

The current India captain smashed 590 runs in 2018 for India in the shortest format, the most by an Indian batter in that year. 

Rohit Sharma: 590 runs 2018

His brilliant 50 against Hong Kong pushed him to 4th on this list and with a lot more T20I matches yet to be played this year, he can easily move to the top. 

Suryakumar Yadav: 514 runs 2022*

Rohit makes it to this list for a second consecutive time. He scored 497 runs in 2016, more than 100 runs behind Kohli's 641 runs in the same year.
