Best Batsmen in the World in 2023

1. Marnus Labuschagne:

In 2019, Marnus Labuschagne of Australia became the first player to be used in a test match as a concussion substitute. It was a lucky break for the player and for the Australians, who almost by accident found a star batsman. Labuschagne took over for Steve Smith in that game, and by the end of the year, he had also passed Smith as the player with the most runs in test matches. He kept scoring a lot in the longest version of the game, and the 27-year-old will start 2022 as the best test batter in the world.

Labuschagne had scored 2644 runs in 35 tests and ODIs before the fourth Ashes test in Sydney in 2022. He had seven centuries and his best score was 215.

2. Babar Azam:

Pakistan’s Babar Azam had a great year in 2021, and he will start the new year as the best batsman in the world for One Day Internationals. Babar is also in the top ten in both Twenty20 cricket and Test cricket. He was a star in all three types of cricket, scoring 939 runs in the past year. The overall strike rate for these runs was 127.58, and the average was 37.56. Even though strike rates tend to go down in test cricket, those numbers are still very good.

At the start of 2022, Babar Azam had played in 203 games across all three formats. He has more than 9,000 runs and 20 international hundred.

3. Dawid Malan:

In the 2021/22 Ashes series, all of England’s test batsmen have had a hard time against Australia. But he starts the New Year as the top-ranked T20i batsman, which is enough to get him on this list.

When he scored 103 against New Zealand in 2019, he was only the second English batter to make a T20i century. Since then, he has also scored a 99 for his country in this format. People say that Malan doesn’t score quickly enough in limited overs cricket, but he should still be an important player for England in 2022.

4. Virat Kohli:

Critics will be quick to point out that Virat Kohli hasn’t made a century in an international game in more than two years. But India’s captain for test matches is still a threat in all three types of cricket, so he deserves to be on this list.

Kohli is ranked second in One Day Internationals and ninth in tests by the official ICC rankings. He will want to show those critics that they were wrong in 2022. And I expect a big answer from Virat Kohli this year.

5. Joe Root:

In terms of the number of test runs, 2021 was Joe Root’s best year. In a bad England team, he came close to setting a new record for most runs in a calendar year, but he didn’t quite make it. His total of 1708 runs is still the third most of all time.

Root started the year with two double hundreds, and at times it seemed like he was fighting alone. What happens in 2022 could depend a lot on whether or not he stays as captain of England, but there’s no doubt that Joe Root is still one of the best batsmen in the world.

6. Kane Williamson:

Kane Williamson, the captain of New Zealand, has been one of the most reliable batsmen in the world for a long time. The Kiwi is expected to do great things in 2022, and he still has high rankings in all types of the game.

Williamson was third in the ICC test ratings at the start of 2022, behind Marnus Labuschagne and Joe Root. He is also ranked ninth in ODIs. Overall, the current captain of New Zealand has more than 15,000 runs in international cricket, including 37 centuries and a high score of 251.

7. Rohit Sharma:

Rohit Sharma of India is set to lead India in the limited overs formats, and we should see a lot more of him in the white ball game. He didn’t play in India’s test series against South Africa at the start of 2022, but he still has a lot to offer in the longer form of cricket.

Rohit has broken a lot of records in one-day international (ODI) cricket. He has three double hundreds in the 50-over format, and his score of 264 is the highest of all time. Those are amazing numbers, and I expect him to do well again in 2022.

8. David Warner:

In 2019, Australia’s left-handed opener had a hard time in England, but that hasn’t been the case in the most recent Ashes series. In the first four tests of 2021/22, David Warner scored a total of 273 runs in six innings. Which is the third most of any player. He averaged 45.5 runs per innings.

Warner has been a good batsman for most of his career, so I won’t be surprised if he has another good year. He was ranked sixth in test cricket and seventh in ODIs at the start of 2022. In 2021, he was dropped by Sunrisers Hyderabad from the IPL, which was a big surprise. However, he is expected to do well with a new team.

9. Aaron Finch:

Aaron Finch is the captain of Australia’s limited overs team. He has also played test cricket, but most people think of him as a white ball specialist. At the beginning of 2022, he was ranked fifth in ODIs and sixth in T20is by the ICC.

Finch started the year 2022 with two of the three highest scores in T20 international cricket. This is a big deal. The current world record of 172, which was set against Zimbabwe in 2018, is on that list.

10. Steve Smith:

Steve Smith had very high standards for himself, so 2021 wasn’t his best year. After averaging over 100 in the Ashes series of 2019. He didn’t get a century in any of the first four tests against England in 2021/22. But it would be silly to give up on him. In this game, your form changes, but your class stays the same, and Smith has a lot of class. He might not be the most beautiful player, but he is very good.

He will now focus on test cricket. In red-ball cricket, Smith has scored 7757 runs at an average of 60.60, with 27 hundred and a best score of 239.
