ENGLAND RATINGS

Rory Burns

Twin half-centuries in final Test against the West Indies followed in this series by scores of only four, 10, nought and six. Position under scrutiny

Rating: 2/10

Dominic Sibley

Quiet series but second-innings 36 helped England chase down 277 to win the opening Test that ultimately proved the difference

Rating: 5/10

Zak Crawley

Started the series out of the team but a brilliant, career-defining 267 in the final Test at the Ageas Bowl proved he is very much here to stay

Rating: 9/10

Joe Root

Captaincy appears to be regressing and although he led his team to victory he was short of runs by his high standards. Must improve

Rating: 5/10

Ben Stokes

Missed final two Tests for family reasons after dominating start of the summer. Still took two key wickets in England’s opening win

Rating: 6/10

Ollie Pope

England’s Mr Reliable won the opening Test with bat and ball. Tired towards the end of the series but steady backup for Messrs Anderson and Broad

Rating: 7/10

Jos Buttler

Named man of the series after his welcome return to form with the bat but must be marked down for his poor wicket-keeping

Rating: 7/10

Chris Woakes

England’s Mr Reliable won the opening Test with bat and ball. Tired towards the end of the series but steady backup for Messrs Anderson and Broad

Rating: 7/10

Dom Bess

If Bess is England’s best spinner then something is deeply wrong. Limited, inexperienced and bafflingly persisted with over Jack Leach

Rating: 3/10

Sam Curran

The young all-rounder bowled 18 overs and didn’t get a chance with the bat in the only match he played – the washed out second Test

Rating: 5/10

Stuart Broad

Dominated the West Indies after being dropped at start of summer and was England’s best bowler again in this series

Rating: 8/10

Jofra Archer

Disappointing, underused and probably fed up with the attention. This has been a tough summer for the gifted fast bowler

Rating: 5/10

James Anderson

Retirement rumours surfaced after opening match in Manchester but finished the series with a 29th Test five-fer and 600 wickets

Rating: 7/10
