11. Josh Hazlewood
Josh Hazlewood was taken to the cleaners by Pakistan, when he returned wicketless after conceding 49 runs in his quota.
10. Adam Zampa
Adam Zampa, the leading wicket-taker in the Super12 stage, with 12 wickets at an economy of 5.69, has made things difficult for the batters throughout the tournament. He got the prized scalp of Babar Azam in the semi-final, recording figures of 1/22.
9. Mitchell Starc
With nine wickets in six games at an average under 21, Mitchell Stac has continued to impress, falsifying the notions that the sluggish track in the desert would not assist his type of bowling.
8. Pat Cummins
Pat Cummins, has not been at his wicket-taking best, having picked only five so far, but he has kept his economy under check.
7. Matthew Wade
Although, had it not been for the Wade-Stoinis duo in the semi-final, Australia will have had to wait until next year, when they will host the tournament, to have a shot at the elusive T20 World Cup title.
6. Marcus Stoinis
filling in Australia’s fifth-bowler quota alongside Marsh or Marcus Stoinis, who both have not had much to do either apart from the first couple of games.
5. Glenn Maxwell
Maxwell has not got enough time in the middle, although whatever limited opportunities have come his way have been left by him like a James Anderson outswinger in the first session of a Lord’s Test.
4. Steven Smith
Steve Smith had a couple of crucial anchoring knocks against South Africa and Sri Lanka before having nothing to do in the games that followed. He fell cheaply, much like most others, when Australia could only set 125 against England
3. Mitchell Marsh
Mitchell Marsh has continued to contribute at No. 3, while occasionally chipping in with the ball alongside Stoinis and Maxwell to make up for the fifth bowler.
2. Aaron Finch
Finch, who was bamboozled by a Shaheen Afridi inswinger, trapped lbw for a golden duck in the semi-final, has scored 130 runs at 21.66 and an uncharacteristic strike rate of 119.26 despite having gotten a chance to bat during the field restriction against the new ball.
1. David Warner
David Warner has got back into his elements, with two consecutive crucial knocks. He struck an unbeaten 89 against West Indies to help Australia ease in a moderate chase of 158. Warner is fourth from the top in the leading run-scorer list, with 236 at 47.20 and a strike rate of nearly 150.
