Only 13 players played for India in the five-match series, with Avesh Khan and Umran Malik not getting a game. Debutants Tilak Varma, Yashasvi Jaiswal, and Mukesh Kumar had varying impacts throughout the series. Here is how each of the 13 players fared across the five T20Is.

Shubman Gill – 5/10

102 runs @ 20.40, SR: 120, 1 fifty

Gill came into the series on the back of an IPL season where he scored 890 runs including four centuries, but couldn’t create much impact as he failed to reach double figures four times in five innings. His 47-ball 77 in the fourth T20I, however, helped India secure a commanding victory.

Ishan Kishan – 2/10

33 runs @ 16.50, SR: 103.12

Kishan was dropped after the first two games of the series, from which he made 33 in 32 balls. Expectations had been high after four consecutive fifties – one in the Test series, three in the ODIs – but he failed to deliver.

Yashasvi Jaiswal – 6/10

90 runs @ 45, SR: 157.89, 1 fifty

Jaiswal debuted in the third match. While he fell second ball on debut, he made up for it with a sublime 84 not out in his second game, taking India to victory. However, he got another single-digit score in the fifth T20I.

Suryakumar Yadav – 8/10

166 runs @ 41.50, SR: 146.90, 2 fifties

Yadav was the second-highest run-scorer for India in the series and the only Indian to hit two fifties. After a slow start by his standards in the first two games, he came back strongly in the third with a 44-ball 83, and made 61 in 45 balls in the fifth to take India to a respectable 165.

Tilak Varma – 9.5/10

173 runs @ 57.66, SR: 140.65, 1 fifty
1 wicket @ 17, ER: 8.50, 0 three-for

Tilak impressed one and all in his debut series. Coming into bat at No.4 (except for one game), Tilak adapted to the situation and provided consistent and quick runs. He was a livewire in the field as well, taking a couple of memorable catches in the outfield, and when called upon to bowl in the final match of the series, he picked a wicket off his second ball in international cricket to cap off a near-perfect series for him.

Sanju Samson – 2/10

32 runs @ 10.66, SR: 114.28

Samson got a rare consistent run of games but was unable to capitalise on that. From the three innings where he got a chance to bat, he managed a highest score of 13.

Hardik Pandya – 4/10

77 runs @ 25.66, SR: 110
4 wickets @ 31.50, ER: 8.40, 1 three-for

Hardik played various roles with both bat and ball, batting at five or six, opening the bowling or coming third-change. However, he was unable to have a defining impact on any game and made several questionable captaincy calls.

Axar Patel – 2/10

40 runs @ 13.33, SR: 121.21
2 wickets @ 46.50, ER: 8.45

Axar wasn’t able to do much with either bat or ball throughout the series. While his batting position was fixed at No.7, he moved around in the bowling around like Hardik, sometimes opening the bowling and sometimes not getting to bowl at all.

Kuldeep Yadav – 9/10

6 wickets @ 15.33, ER: 5.75, 1 three-for

India’s best bowler of the series, Kuldeep was their second-highest wicket-taker. He was near-impossible to get away, as his economy rate of under six suggests. His best figures – 3-28 in four overs – came in the third T20I.

Arshdeep Singh – 7/10

7 wickets @ 22.28, ER: 9.17, 1 three-for

India’s highest wicket-taker in the series went for more than nine runs per over, the highest for any Indian bowler in the series who bowled more than one over.

Yuzvendra Chahal – 5/10

5 wickets @ 32.60, ER: 9.05

Having started the series well with two wickets in each of the first two games, Chahal’s form fell off in the second half. In the last three games, he managed to pick only one wicket while going at 10 runs per over.

Ravi Bishnoi – 2/10

0 wickets, ER: 7.75

Bishnoi played only the second match of the series in the injured Kuldeep’s absence, and returned 0-31 in four overs.

Mukesh Kumar – 3/10

3 wickets @ 37.66, ER: 8.80

Mukesh made his T20I debut in the series and was often tasked with bowling the tough overs at the death. While not exactly poor, he wasn’t very effective either, as the numbers suggest.
