HOW THE PLAYERS PERFORMED IN AUSTRALIA'S POOR WORLD T20 CAMPAIGN:

David Warner - Took until the Bangladesh match to get going, but quickfire 48 set the platform for win.

Aaron Finch - Started and finished strongly with half centuries against Pakistan and Bangladesh, but little in between.

Shane Watson - Horror tournament with the bat, scoring just seven runs but took three wickets.

Glenn Maxwell - Australia's best. Top-scored in first three games. If he'd had any support, they'd likely be in the semi-finals.

George Bailey - A low-scoring tour for the skipper, who admitted the loss to India was the worst of his captaincy.

Brad Hodge - Hardly made the most of his international swansong, with only one meaningful knock of 35 in the loss to the West Indies.

Cameron White - His unbeaten 18 got Australia home against Bangladesh, but a duck against India was less impressive.

Brad Haddin - A horrible series with gloves and bat for a player in desperate need of a rest.

Mitchell Starc - Will be remembered for his costly and match-turning over at the death against the Windies, but finished as Australia's leading wicket-taker with five.

Nathan Coulter-Nile - Australia's best performed quick, took two wickets against Bangladesh and Pakistan - but was mysteriously omitted from the other fixtures.

Doug Bollinger - A late callup for the injured Mitchell Johnson, Bollinger took a wicket in each game, but his fielding was awful.

James Muirhead - Australia's next spin hope was used sparingly, but claimed the big scalps of Chris Gayle and Virat Kohli. A bright future, but a quiet tournament.

James Faulkner, Dan Christian, Brad Hogg - Tough to judge each on one performance.
