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.​​


Pakistan signed off their England tour with a nine-wicket win in the only T20I – in Manchester – on Wednesday (7 Sep).

Wahab Riaz was the highest impact player, and bowler, of the match for his three top/middle-order wickets in a highly restrictive spell (3 for 18 off 4 overs).

Sharjeel Khan was the highest impact batsman and his 36-ball-59 provided Pakistan with the ideal start. He and Khalid Latif (59 not out off 42 balls) put on 107 runs for the first wicket off just 11.1 overs – effectively sealing the chase.

Alex Hales, meanwhile, finished as England’s highest impact player.

Four players from Pakistan failed in the match while England, who cut a sorry figure, had eight such players.
