As England's beaten World Cup crickets return home, we look at who were big hits and who failed to impress during the stuttering campaign.
Despite some highlights including a tie against India and thrilling victories over South Africa and the West Indies, England suffered defeats to Ireland and Bangladesh before bowing out against Sri Lanka.
However there were some memorable individual displays from the likes of Andrew Strauss, Stuart Broad and James Tredwell but was it enough to gain them a top mark in the ratings.
Remember to let us know your views via the form below...
He has led with authority and adapted his batting style acceptably. Strauss' 158 in the tie against India was a superlative effort, on a pitch which suited him more than most on the subcontinent. He deserves to make his own uncompromised decision about his future as one-day captain. Rating 7
Finally returned to the top of the order, after a two-year hiatus, in England's tournament-ending defeat against Sri Lanka. There is good reason to believe he should stay there now, whoever his partner. 7
Dividing opinion is the sure sign of a significant presence - and Trott is doing just that. As England exited the tournament, their number three was out on his own as its top runscorer. But does he get them quickly enough for others to bat round him? 8
Took his unexpected chance with characteristic enthusiasm and skill, and was successful to a degree. Bopara will be part of England's forward planning in ODIs but perhaps not yet central to it. 7
The Irishman's precision hitting and placement has seemed to desert him of late. Played a good hand in defeats against Bangladesh and Sri Lanka after his late arrival, but needed acres of luck on the second occasion. England need him back to his best. 7
The wicketkeeper-batsman is "bewildered" at his inability to score consistent runs at the top of the order. Prior's limited-overs average is little more than half what he manages in Tests. He may be vulnerable to calls for change, but perhaps should not be - yet. 6
Ever-present and reliable. But Bresnan, perhaps struggling with a recurrence of his calf injury, mustered only three wickets in his last five matches. He will never fail for lack of self-belief, but needs a hard-earned break now. 6
He has gone through troughs of bad batting form before, but not at the age of 34. The commitment and will is still there, and his bowling can be handy in certain conditions. Even so, Collingwood may have to accept the inevitable soon. 4
Twice came up with decisive spells to get England over the line in ultra-tight matches in Chennai. He must have been feeling the effects of England's hard toil this winter, but rarely shows it on or off the pitch. 7
The athletic Sussex all-rounder was cast as chief sub fielder and drinks carrier - until injuries to others suddenly put him in the frame. His 44 from number seven against West Indies helped to lever England into the knockout stages at least. 6
Like Wright, he seemed destined for the periphery yet held his nerve to see off the Windies' top three in Chennai and end up a highly unlikely man-of-the-match. It will surely be his finest hour. 7
Even with a two-week rest after Chittagong, England did not risk their exhausted Ashes hero in the quarter-final. They will manage his schedule with the utmost care from now on. 5
Bowled one wonderful over to Tillekeratne Dilshan in Colombo, then immediately lost his way. England know they have a prize asset when Tremlett is on song, but must nurse him through the fallow periods. 5
He has endured a deeply frustrating winter, cut off in his prime by side injuries after one-and-a-half Ashes Tests and three World Cup matches. Two stomach upsets conspired to make his subcontinental experience especially uncomfortable. But his match-winning 4-15 against South Africa demonstrated what England have missed. 7
Promotion up the order was a sensible move for Pietersen and England, especially on subcontinental surfaces, and his departure to have hernia surgery was a bitter blow. Pietersen has untapped potential as an ODI opener - but does he want to realise it? 7
Another who was unable to finish the campaign because of injury. But England will know the Yorkshire seamer is one for the future in all formats. 7
His return home with depression was the single saddest episode of England's long winter. He may have played his last match for England, but can look forward to many more good years at Sussex. 6
