England World Twenty20 player ratings
England crashed out of the ICC World Twenty20 against West Indies after a dramatic night at the Oval. Having beaten India on Sunday, this time they left their bowlers with a bit too much to do.
It was a decent enough showing overall from the hosts, despite two poor performances against the Dutch and South Africa - and these are my ratings out of 10 for the players. Feel free to agree or disagree.
Paul Collingwood (captain) 6
Squeezed every last drop out of his players in the wins against Pakistan and India, and seemed to rotate the bowlers intelligently. With the bat, he didn't quite hit the high notes, particularly on the night England went out.
Ravi Bopara 7
Showed that you can hit regular boundaries in Twenty20 while still playing proper shots and scored notable runs in three out of five innings, which is a decent success rate in this format. England relied on him more than they should have.
Luke Wright 6
Batted with success in England's first two matches, but went missing when the quality went up a notch at the Super Eight phase. Preferred as a spare seamer to Collingwood and Bopara, and did not disgrace in that department. Fielded very well.
Kevin Pietersen 8
England's "gun" player wound up with a total of 154 in four innings and at a strike rate of 152 (which means England would have scored more than 180 every innings if everyone else had matched his rate). KP had an impressive tournament.
Owais Shah 5
Hit four sixes in the tournament, but only scored at just over a run a ball overall which suggests he played out too many dot balls (as he indeed did). In short, Shah produced a series of "nearly" innings - which pretty much summed up England's tournament.
Dimitri Mascarenhas 6
Was overlooked for the final match, perhaps on the basis that he had struggled to provide impetus when promoted to number four against India on Sunday. Was also surprisingly underused as a bowler, despite having the best economy rate.
James Foster 7
The glovework was out of the top drawer, particularly for the stumpings of Yuvraj Singh and Dwayne Bravo - ones that many keepers would not have been quick enough to get. Did not disgrace himself with the bat, either.
Graeme Swann 7
The mad decision to leave him out against the Netherlands was shown up as Swann emerged with five, often crucial wickets from the games he did play - and he was tidy too. He really is a key player across all formats now for England.
Stuart Broad 8
England's leading wicket-taker was also one of the most economical, and he gave many of the best batsmen grief with his accurate bouncers. Also scored 22 runs off just 11 balls faced across his three brief innings. He must be promoted up the order.
Adil Rashid 7
Not expected to play such a major role when coming in as a late replacement for Andrew Flintoff, Rashid bowled particularly well against Pakistan and with more luck on his side would have ended up with more wickets to his name. A bit of a find.
Ryan Sidebottom 7
The injury woes that ruined his winter, and the early part of the summer, were forgotten as Sidebottom bowled with heart and plenty of pace. After being overlooked for a couple of games, really rattled India's top order with a memorable spell.
James Anderson 6
While England's bowlers were in the main impressive, Anderson was perhaps not quite at his very best. He remains a key part of this unit, however, and - like others - would have learnt a great deal from this tournament.
Eoin Morgan, Rob Key, Graham Napier
In a policy move that many observers queried, Napier was overlooked for the entire campaign. Morgan and Key were dropped after both failed against the Netherlands and cannot really be rated on that performance alone.
