England’s big winner of the series. A thrilling, uninhibited talent who may yet tempt England to shuffle Jos Buttler down the order so they can squeeze him in.
At his assertive best in the second T20, but scores of two and a duck bookended his series. Long-term slot is No 3, not opening.
Excellent undefeated 54 in the second T20 steered an impressive chase, but relatively slow starts remain a barrier to being in England’s first-choice XI.
In total command as batsman and captain. Attacking from the onset of his innings, he leads where he wants his team to follow.
Redeemed a terrible start to the summer with a sublime 61 from 33 deliveries, with four sixes, in the final game that almost secured a 2-0 series victory.
Useful 26 from 24 deliveries in the final international, but missed the chance to make a more substantive score to push his claims.
Despite two sweetly struck boundaries in the final game, Gregory may not be quite international standard with bat or ball. May have played his last game for England.
On thankless surfaces, Jordan was England’s most economical bowler, in another reminder of his T20 nous and experience and cementing his spot in the strongest XI.
Bowler renowned for his variations too often descended to the wayward. Lack of pace means that Curran must constantly evolve.
Impressive in the second T20, but bereft of control in the final game, leaking 40 runs from three overs.
England believe in Mahmood’s capacity to develop into a “top and tail” quick in the powerplay and at the death, but he remains a work in progress.
