In the last Super 4 match, Virat Kohli scored his first T20I century against Afghanistan. He had 276 runs after five matches, while Mohammad Rizwan had 281 runs after six matches.
Team India didn’t make it to the final of the Asia Cup 2022 in the UAE, but there was some good news for Indian cricket fans: they almost topped the charts for runs scored and wickets taken. Sri Lanka won the tournament. Mohammad Rizwan of Pakistan, who is the No. 1 T20 batter in the world, scored 55 runs to lead his team to victory in the final on Sunday, September 11. This was just enough to beat out former India captain Virat Kohli as the player with the most runs.
Kohli scored 276 runs in five T20I matches before his first century in the last Super 4 match against Afghanistan. Rizwan scored 281 runs in six matches, with three half-centuries, for an average of 56.2. Bhanuka Rajapaksa was named “Player of the Match” in the final. He ended up with 191 runs from 6 games, with his best score of 71 not out coming in the final.
Bhuvneshwar Kumar, a fast bowler from India, took the most wickets in the tournament. He took 11 wickets in 5 games, with a best of 5/4 against Afghanistan. Wanindu Hasaranga, an all-rounder from Sri Lanka, was named “Player of the Tournament,” but he ended up with the second-most wickets, with 9 in 6 games. Mohammad Nawaz, a Pakistani all-rounder, took third place with 8 wickets.

We were 60/5 when I went up to bat, so we decided that if we could score over 150, that would be a good score. Wanindu Hasaranga said about the pressure in the final, “I said I would do my own thing, so I played my normal shots.”
I like bowling in subcontinent a lot. I like bowling on the stumps because I think it helps me do well. I try to bowl without hitting any boundaries, which is why I got three wickets in the last over today. Even though we lost to Afghanistan, our boys did a great job,” Hasaranga added.
