Runs (scored) | Balls (taken) | Bat-pts: Batting points | | Rc: Runs conceded | Bb: Balls bowled | W: Wickets taken | Bowl-pts: Bowling points | Ct/St: Catches taken / Stumpings | Run outs (participated) | Field-pts: fielding points | M: Matches played | Total (points) = sum of batting, bowling and fielding points | *Run outs are counted as 1 (wicket) for a direct hit, and 0.5 (wicket) if the fielder is an equal participant in a run out dismissal.

It is noteworthy that Afridi was also independently chosen as the Player of the Series. In fact, the MVP has often provided the best indicator of who the player of the series might be (Ian Bell in the recent NatWest Series and Sachin Tendulkar in the India-SA series topped the series MVP list and, in both cases, were also declared players of the series).
