Rohit Sharma: Rohit Sharma, who has proven to be the most successful batsman for Team India this year, has scored the most runs in all three formats. However, his magic did not work in the Oval.
This year has been great for Indian cricket team ODI and T20 captain Rohit Sharma. In addition to making terrific scores, he was also appointed captain of the team in both formats. At present Rohit is finishing the year without playing any match in batting. Became the highest-scoring player in 2021.

He scored 2 centuries and 9 fifties at an average of 43. Rohit has scored 906 runs in Tests, 90 in ODIs and 424 in T20Is this year. Both centuries came in Tests.
Meanwhile, after Rohit, Pakistan’s T20 opener Mohammad Rizwan topped the list. Great for Pakistan wicketkeeper-batsmen this year. He became the first player to score 1000 runs in a single year in international T20s. All the runs scored by Rizwan as an opener came in T20I. He scored 1326 runs in 29 T20 matches in 26 innings at an average of 73.66 and a strike rate of 134.89. Rizwan scored 1 century and 12 fifties.
