The T20 World Cup 2022 concluded with England beating Pakistan in the finals to lift their second T20 title. They became the first team to hold the ODI and T20 World Cups at the same time. Despite multiple injuries, the Lions didn’t fumble and kept their form to prove why they are considered one of the greatest white-ball cricket sides.
The showpiece event turned out to be a successful one as everyone had anticipated. It entertained the fans to the fullest. Apart from team’s show, there were numerous individuals who lit up the tournament with their brilliance. Here, we look at the best XI of the T20 World Cup 2022.
1) Openers – Jos Butter and Alex Hales
Jos Buttler is regarded as one of the finest strikers of the ball, which is unchallengeable without a doubt. His ability to score quick runs under any situation makes him one of a kind. He ended the tournament as the fourth-highest-run scorer with 225 runs to his name, averaging 45 and striking at an impressive rate of 144.23.
Alex Hales came into the scheme of things after Jonny Bairstow picked up an injury in an unusual manner. He managed to retain his spot through consistent performances. In the tournament, he scored 212 runs at a strike-rate of 147.22 and an average of 42.40, including two fifties.
The English duo shared good partnerships together and who can forget their show against India in the semifinals. They chased down 169 without any trouble to script a memorable 10-wicket win. Both Buttler and Hales were clinical with the bat and were definitely the two best openers in Australia.
