England’s T20 World Cup ended after they fell in an agonizing semi-final loss to New Zealand when victory was within their grasp.

That loss followed a loss to South Africa, but before that, Eoin Morgan’s team was in brilliant shape, cementing their status as pre-tournament favorites with landslide victories over the West Indies, Bangladesh and Australia and a close win over Sri Lanka.

SportsmailLawrence Booth is in the UAE for the T20 World Cup, and here he rates the performances of the 13 players who have played for England.

9 – Jos Buttler

A super star. His 67 hundred balls against Sri Lanka were the tournament’s innings (so far), and they came just two days after he eviscerated Australia. He hit 13 sixes, eight more than his closest teammate (Roy), and held Wicket suspiciously.

8.5 – Moeen Ali

He seemed reborn after his decision to leave test cricket, and he made himself feel like a vital cog early on, throwing first in the demolition of the West Indies and eventually moving up the order. He was the tightest bowler in England, at just 5.5 and over, and his half century against New Zealand deserved better.

7.5 – Liam Livingstone

He didn’t get many chances with the bat, but he provided one of the World Cup’s champagne moments with three sixes in a row against South Africa’s Kagiso Rabada. His tricky bowling twist was a revelation (seven wickets on 14, and cost less than a run per ball) and should have guaranteed England a place in the final.

7.5 – Jason Roy

He repeatedly drove England crazy over Buttler, never again than in victory over Australia. And his courage grew in his absence. After breaking a calf muscle against South Africa, England lacked their usual high-level verve against New Zealand, a cruel blow to both man and team.

7 – Tymal Mills

When he limped out of the Sri Lankan game, Mills took England’s death with him. Australia’s lower order managed a few hits, but figures of two out of 17 against the West Indies and three out of 27 against Bangladesh proved their worth. England missed him very much in the semi-finals.

7 – Adil Rashid

England’s top wicket catcher with nine, though four came in the first game, for two runs, against the hapless West Indians. He embodied his team’s tournament: magnificent against Sri Lanka and Australia, less against South Africa and New Zealand.

7 – Chris wakes up

A late addition to England’s plans, Woakes was almost always excellent at the power play, though easier to hit later – his performance against New Zealand summed up the dichotomy. A few more inches on their last hoick against Rabada, and England could have beaten South Africa.

6.5 – Eoin Morgan

Overall, he was correct in his tactics, despite flashbacks for an additional bowler in the semifinal. He used all his talents to hit 40 in tough conditions against Sri Lanka in Sharjah, but was otherwise not the hitting force he once was.

6 – Sam Billings

He did not hit in his only appearance, in the semi-final, but was part of a memorable relay catch on the edge with Roy to fire Wanindu Hasaranga at a crucial stage in Sri Lanka’s pursuit in Sharjah.

6 – Chris Jordan

They fell after a combined 8-0-41-5 against Australia and Sri Lanka, managing 7-0-67-0 against South Africa and New Zealand. Unfortunately for Jordan, his tournament will be remembered for Jimmy Neesham’s onslaught in Abu Dhabi. He will turn 34 when the next T20 World Cup arrives.

6 – Dawid Malan

He entered the World Cup as the top-ranked hitter in T20, but failed to live up to the billing, hitting just 119 per 100 balls and coming to life only in the semi-final. Assuming England sticks with him, next year’s T20 World Cup pitches in Australia should be more to his liking.

5 – Mark wood

He entered for two games after Mills’ injury and was unable to make his presence felt. Pace and rebound weren’t enough, and eight non-wicketless overs cost 81. He also pitched England’s only World Cup no-ball, against New Zealand.

4 – Jonny Bairstow

A premature loss of form for a player who has been a white ball banker so many times. He couldn’t pass 16, had a 111 strike rate, and struggled to make a good impression when he replaced Roy as the starter against New Zealand.
