T20 WORLD CUP SCHOOL REPORTS

ANDY BALBIRNIE (capt)

Quality runs at the top against England and the West Indies but has perhaps become over dependent on the sweep. Led well bar one or two odd decisions in early games.  (7/10)

PAUL STIRLING 

Made one telling contribution - a vital one that took Ireland to victory over the West Indies. Useful runs against England too. Still the most prized scalp for the opposition (7/10)

LORCAN TUCKER

The only batsman in any team to record double figures in every innings. Superb knocks against the West Indies and Australia. Fearless and stylish batting (9/10)

HARRY TECTOR

Disappointing tournament for an outstanding young talent. Top scored with 45 against Sri Lanka but was never at his fluent best. Only 22, he will have better World Cups  (5/10)

CURTIS CAMPHER

Produced the innings of the campaign with a stunning 72 not out from 32 balls to turn defeat into victory against Scotland. Not bowled much despite his four-in-four last year  (7/10)

GEORGE DOCKRELL

Excellent foil to Campher in a match-turning partnership against Scotland but suffered more than his share of unplayable balls. Four tidy overs against Australia (7/10)

GARETH DELANY

Grew into the main spinner role, with his three wickets setting up the West Indies win. Steady elsewhere. Could and should have delivered more runs at No 7 (7/10)

MARK ADAIR

Showcased his seam variations at the start and end of innings, and was successful more often than not, until the Australia loss. Still largely unfulfilled potential with the bat  (7/10)

BARRY McCARTHY

Another to enhance his reputation, filling the third seamer role manfully after recovering from a pasting by Scotland. Made useful runs down the order  (8/10)

SIMI SINGH

Did little wrong but finger spinners generally struggle Down Under and this proved to be the case, despite his leggie variations. At 35, may have played his last World Cup (5/10)

JOSH LITTLE

Led the attack with pace and aggression. Useful wickets up front and partnerships broken in the middle. Performances will have alerted more T20 franchises around the globe (9/10)

FIONN HAND

Delivered the ball of the tournament to bowl England star Ben Stokes but struggled against Australia on a flat pitch. Can look ordinary but has a bit of stardust (6/10)
