The International Cricket Council has announced the Women's team of the World Twenty20' incorporating Salma Khatun of Bangladesh in the squad.
A total of six players from the ICC Women's World Twenty 20 Bangladesh 2014 finalists Australia and England were included in the ICC women's team of the rournament, announced today in Dhaka, with England's Charlotte Edwards named as captain for the second consecutive time.
Chosen by a select group of experts, the team was selected for its suitability for Bangladesh conditions and on the basis of performances in the tournament only. Statistics were used but were not the sole basis for selections, said an ICC media release on Monday.
David Boon of the Emirates Elite Panel of ICC Match Referees was the chairman of the independent jury that selected the Men's Player of the Tournament. Other members of the panel included Marais Erasmus of the Emirates Elite Panel of ICC Umpires, former Pakistan captain Wasim Akram, ex-England captain Nasser Hussain, former West Indies fast bowler Ian Bishop and Utpal Shuvro, one of Bangladesh's senior-most cricket correspondents.
In all, two players from champions Australia were selected, while runners-up England had four representatives in the side. The team also features two players from West Indies, and one player each from Bangladesh, India and New Zealand.
Commenting on the side, chairman of the independent jury and member of the Emirates Elite Panel of ICC Match Referees, David Boon, said: "This year's tournament again demonstrated the incredible depth of talent across women's cricket. Selecting one team of 11 players was a tough task as we saw standout performances from many players."
"The selection criteria are the performances of players in the conditions here in Bangladesh during the ICC World Twenty20 2014, so some of the world's best players had to be left out.
He also said the side reflects the effectiveness of bowlers throughout the tournament, with four specialist bowlers, including Bangladesh spinner Salma Khatun, as well as four all-rounders and three specialist batters who have performed consistently throughout the tournament.
