On Monday, after England won a nail-biting ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 final against an unlucky New Zealand side, the International Cricket Council (ICC) announced the team of the tournament. The squad led by New Zealand skipper Kane Williamson consisted of two Indian players, Jasprit Bumrah and Rohit Sharma.

The two Indian players were included in the squad after Rohit Sharma was the tournament's leading run-getter with 648 runs at an average of 81 whereas Jasprit Bumrah had scalped 18 wickets throughout the competition.

The hosts and first-time World Cup champions England had the most players in the squad, i.e. four players, in the XI whereas the runners-up, New Zealand had two in the team. The squad was named by ICC in order to honour the players who played well throughout the tournament.

The other representatives consisted of players from semi-finalists Australia, who have two players, while Bangladesh’s Shakib Al Hasan rounds up the team.

The side was selected by former internationals and commentators Ian Bishop, Ian Smith and Isa Guha, along with cricket writer Lawrence Booth, while ICC General Manager Cricket, Geoff Allardice, was the fifth member and convener of the committee.
