The year 2022 saw some riveting action in the Test arena. Teams showed immense grit and determination and fans witnessed some breathtaking action on the cricket field. Be it Bangladesh registering their first-ever win against New Zealand on the latter’s turf, Australia’s epic series win on Pakistan soil, or England's ‘Bazball’ explosion which took world cricket by storm, 2022 saw it all.

In 2022, there were many players who raised their hands and delivered the goods for their respective teams. However, there were certain cricketers who were phenomenal throughout the year and set the Test arena ablaze with their jaw-dropping performances frequently.

Here is the best Test XI of 2022:

1. Usman Khawaja 

Usman Khawaja has been a proven performer for Australia in the Test arena. The 36-year-old has featured in 55 matches and scored 3967 runs at an average of 45.59. He made a stunning comeback to the longest format of the game, smashing twin centuries in the 4th Ashes Test in Sydney in January 2022.

Khawaja has not looked back since his return and has kept stacking up runs for Australia at the top of the order. He notched up 1080 runs in 11 Tests at an average of 67.50 in the last calendar year and provided Australia with solid starts on a consistent basis.

The southpaw’s sensational run with the bat has taken the load off veteran cricketer David Warner, who is known to do the heavy lifting at the start of the innings. Khawaja has become an integral part of the Australian batting line-up and the team management would hope the ace batter continues his rich vein of form going forward.
