Asia Cup 2022: The Asia Cup has always been a closely watched cricket tournament by fans from all around the globe. The tournament has provided the fans with numerous memorable moments in terms of superbly intense encounters, fine individual performances and a dozen other instances which shall be etched in the memories of cricket fans for several years to come. 

The Asia Cup which is supposed to commence in another couple of weeks too is expected to be a highly intense one. All the participating teams have rolled up their sleeves and prepared themselves to the fullest to achieve newer heights in the upcoming significant tournament. 

Several players who’ve been of great use to their sides will be expected to save the day for their nation once again on this big stage. It’s time for us to have a look at the Top three batsmen who can be top run-getters in Asia Cup 2022. 

3. Virat Kohli

In spite of going through a rough patch, Virat Kohli will be an important part of the Indian batting line up that will feature in the Asia Cup later this month. The right-hander hasn’t been in the best of form and is looking for big runs in shorter formats of the game. 

Despite his poor form and sting of low scores, India’s former captain is too good a player to be sidelined. His sheer presence in the Indian XI is a threat to any other opposition side in the world. The 33-year-old has scored 81 runs in 4 T20I matches that he’s played so far in 2022. 

His highest score has been that of 52 against the West Indies. Though His recent outings against England in the three-match T20I series weren’t worth remembering, he will be a key player in the Indian lineup and stands a strong chance to lead the run-scoring charts in the Asia Cup 2022.

2. Rohit Sharma

Another possible batsman who might be the leading run-scorer in Asia Cup 2022 is India’s skipper Rohit Sharma. The right-hander has been in fairly good touch in the shortest format of the game for India in the recent matches that he’s played in. 

Rohit has scored 290 runs in 13 T20I matches for India so far this year with a strike rate of almost 140. His highest score this year came in his recent outing against West Indies wherein he scored a sublime inning of 64 runs. 

His good form and ability to provide quality starts to his team with the bat will be of remarkable use. He thus also is a candidate to be the leading run-scorer in this edition of the Asia Cup.

1. Babar Azam

At no.1 position in this list is Pakistan’s skipper Babar Azam. Babar undoubtedly has been one of the best batsmen in white ball cricket and T20Is in particular in the past few years. His indescribable versatility in terms of batting as per the situation has been remarkably good. 

Another thing which has paved his way to glory is his unbelievable consistency in terms of converting the majority of the starts to big scores. The 28-year-old has played only one T20I this year and scored a fine half-century in the match against Australia

He showed glimpses of reaching greater heights in the T20I format too when he smashed an unbeaten ton against South Africa in their own backyard the previous year. 

Considering his exceptional present form and abilities to win his side matches all by himself, Babar indeed will be the most probable player to end up being the top scorer of the Asia Cup 2022.
