With the stats by his side, he is now aiming for a big record that Shikhar Dhawan has held since 2018. If SKY scores another 7 runs, he will surpass Dhawan for most runs in a calendar year by an Indian. Follow India vs SouthAfrica 1st T20 LIVE Updates on InsideSport.IN.

After showing promise in 2021, Suryakumar has taken his game to a whole new level. He is the highest run-scorer in the shortest format this year. In 20 appearances, he has scored 682 runs at an average of 37.88.

One century and four half-centuries have come out of his bat. His best individual score this year is 117. The star batter’s performance remains crucial for the Men in Blue heading into ICC T20 World Cup later this year, which his side would want to win after a disappointing Super 12 phase exit last year.

Before the T20 World Cup, a series against South Africa is another opportunity for him to cement his status as one of India’s most-trusted T20I batters currently and re-write the record books in two ways. First, Suryakumar is just seven runs shy of surpassing his compatriot Shikhar Dhawan to amass the most T20I runs for India in a calendar year.

In 2018, Shikhar scored 689 runs at an average of 40.52 in 18 matches. He scored six half-centuries and his best individual score that year was 92. With the form Suryakumar is in, breaking Shikhar Dhawan’s record does not seem to be a difficult task for him. Suryakumar and Shikhar are followed in this category by Virat Kohli (641 runs in 2016) and skipper Rohit Sharma (590 in 2018).

Many admirers of his game have described Suryakumar, who has smashed 42 sixes in 20 T20 innings for India so far this year, as India’s “six machine”. These are the highest number of sixes by a batter in T20I cricket this year.
