Note: In a career context, all numbers are restricted between 0 and 5. However, in a match context, the numbers are not restricted. For simplicity, we are changing the scale here in the report and expressing every Match Impact number as a percentage. The maximum percentage (100) is assigned to the highest impact player of the match. All other players in the match are scaled relative to him. Negative Match Impact indicates that not only did the player not contribute in the match, but he also had an adverse effect on his team’s chances.​​

Scorecard

England beat India by seven wickets in the first Twenty20 International in Kanpur on Thursday (26 Jan).

Eoin Morgan was the highest impact player and batsman of the series opener.

Chasing 148, Morgan top-scored with 51 (off 38 balls) and – with Joe Root (unbeaten run-a-ball 46) for company – added 83 runs for the third wicket in 11.3 overs. England’s skipper had Fielding Impact too.

Moeen Ali – who was adjudged man of the match – was the highest impact bowler for his two top/middle-order wickets in the most economical spell of the evening (2 for 21 in 4 overs).

MS Dhoni, meanwhile, finished as India’s highest impact player for his unbeaten 27-ball 36.

As many as six Indians failed in today’s match. England had only three such players.
