How England's players rated on their West Indies tour

10 March 2017 04:38

England have scored an historic 3-0 one-day international series victory over West Indies, their first whitewash success in the Caribbean.

Here, Press Association Sport rates the individual contributions from Eoin Morgan's tourists.

JASON ROY: Still searching for a first ODI hundred since his career-best 162 last summer. But there have been six half-centuries in 14 innings since then, including an important one in this series. 7

SAM BILLINGS: One 50, and one golden duck - enough to keep him in mind as reserve opener but not to delay Alex Hales' return. 6

JOE ROOT: Wonderfully consistent and England's glue in this format at number three. Capped the series with his first ODI hundred in a year. 8

EOIN MORGAN: The captain's hundred underpinned an opening victory in awkward conditions. Lost three tosses, but finished in credit. 7

BEN STOKES: The all-rounder's half-century was also important in the first match of his hard-working, rather than vintage series. 7

JOS BUTTLER: Runs have dried up so far this year for England's most devastating white-ball batsman, but he let no one down behind the stumps. 4

MOEEN ALI: Helped to ensure England had the leeway they needed to go 1-0 up, with a late cameo from number seven. Moeen's batting then tailed off, but his off-spin was reliable. 6

CHRIS WOAKES: England's banker all-rounder across the formats, Woakes' unbeaten 68 bailed them out of big trouble in match two. It is perhaps only an undemonstrative demeanour that keeps his sterling efforts away from the headlines. 9

ADIL RASHID: England's management have spelled out he is deployed as a middle-over wicket-taker. Still vulnerable to a big-hitting assault, though. 6

LIAM PLUNKETT: Has proved he can learn new tricks to complement his chief asset of pace, and was rewarded with 10 wickets in the series. Plunkett's six-hitting ability at number 10 is decidedly handy too. 8

STEVEN FINN: Chalked up his 100th ODI wicket in Antigua, and generally did enough to keep himself in the Champions Trophy frame - depending on the fitness of others who could yet return. 7

ALEX HALES: Announced his comeback in the grand manner after recovering from his broken hand, with a century at his first attempt. Hard to quibble with that. 9
