Dawid Malan's failure in the quarterfinal meant that he could not rise above the third position in the list of batsmen with most runs in the 2019 Vitality Blast. Babar Azam, 119 ahead of fifth-placed Sam Hain, still tops the chart. None of the batsmen in the top five will feature in the semi-finals.

Moeen Ali's outrageous 60-ball 121 not out, combined with AB de Villiers' rare failure, meant that the latter conceded the top spot in the averages chart to the former.
