The year 2022 started on the worst note for team India with BCCI and the selection committee playing musical chairs with the selection of players and constantly changing the leadership cap. One of the worst news was the resignation of Virat Kohli from the duties of the Test skipper after the night of the South Africa tour.
However, things eventually started changing for the Men in Blue and eventually they got their winning momentum back by the end of the year. This year, a lot of new faces have been introduced to the team and they have done a brilliant job towards the success of the squad.

Best moments that team India witnessed in the year 2022
In this article, we have compiled a list of best moments which Team India have witnessed this year:
3) ODI & T20 Series Win against England
One of the biggest moments for team India was their series win against England while touring England for a T20 and ODI series. The schedule was to play a three-match T20 and ODI series between both the teams and things started taking turns for team India since then.
The series happened in July 2022 and team India won both series by 2-1. The added advantage was the brilliant performance by the allrounder Hardik Pandya who came out as a match-winner for team India. His commendable comeback to team India after 8 months of absence was an absolute fairytale.
2) Ishan Kishan’s Double Century against Bangladesh
Ishan Kishan has always been a young talented player who got more chances in IPL than with Blue Jersey. However, he has always performed well whenever he has been trusted by the team management.
A similar situation was witnessed in the third ODI against Bangladesh where Ishan Kishan was able to score his maiden double-century. Kishan opened the innings and gave team India momentum by scoring 210 runs in 131 balls at a strike rate of 160.31.
1) Virat Kohli’s comeback
One of the biggest concerns in the year 2022 was the declining performance of Virat Kohli in international cricket. His limited over captaincy was taken away in 2021 and in 2022 he resigned from Test cricket.
He also took a break from international cricket for a certain period of time but nothing changed with his performance.
However, it was during the Aisa Cup 2022, Virat Kohli showed some signs of his comeback and finally in the ICC T20 World Cup, against Pakistan in a group match, team India’s golden boy Virat Kohli but it official that he is back again in his old form by scoring 82 runs in 53 balls at a strike rate of 154.72.
The memorable moment during that was Kohli scoring two sixes in the death overs and helping team India to defeat their arch-rivals.
