Fakhar Zaman has dominated the batting charts of the tournament so far. He is the highest run-scorer of the tournament with 588 runs. Zaman has scored one century and seven half-centuries in 13 innings. Multan Sultans opening batters Mohammad Rizwan and Shan Masood are the other two batters among the Top three run-scorers of PSL 7. Rizwan has scored 532 runs, whereas Masood has scored 459 runs.

The evergreen Shoaib Malik has scored 401 runs at a strike-rate of 137.32 for the Zalmis. He is at the fourth position among the highest run-scorers in PSL 2022. Karachi Kings have struggled in the tournament but captain Babar Azam still makes the Top Six. Apart from these five, players like Alex Hales (355), Jason Roy (303) and Azam Khan (296) have also played some great knocks.

The start of PSL 2022 had witnessed spinners dominating the wicket-taking charts only to be replaced by fast bowlers towards the end. Leading a PSL franchise for the first time, winning captain Shaheen Shah Afridi didn’t let the additional responsibility affect his bowling picking 20 wickets to finish the season as the best bowler.

Afridi surpassed Islamabad United captain Shadab Khan to become the highest wicket-taker of the tournament. Despite bowling in only eight innings, Shadab is the second-highest wicket-taker in PSL 7.

While Afridi’s teammate Zaman Khan (18) is third on the list, Multan Sultans trio of Shahnawaz Dahani (17), Khushdil Shah (16) and Imran Tahir (16) follow the top three wicket-takers this season.

Overall, Shadab Khan is clearly the best player of the Pakistan Super League 2022. In addition to his supreme efforts with the ball in hand, the 22-year old player is also the 13th-highest run-scorer scoring 268 runs at a strike rate of 168.42.
