COLOMBO, Sri Lanka (CMC):
No West Indies player has been been chosen on the International Cricket Council's (ICC) ODI team of the year announced yesterday.
However, the specially appointed selection panel was chaired by West Indian batting legend and former captain Clive Lloyd.
Six countries are represented in the 12-man line-up named by ICC's chief executive David Richardson.
The team is being captained by India's MS Dhoni who keeps wicket for the fifth year in a row.
The other two Indian players selected are Gautam Gambhir and Virat Kohli.
Two players each were selected from England, Sri Lanka and Pakistan while a South African and an Australian complete the line-up.
Australian Shane Watson is the 12th man.
"This team, along with the Test Team of the Year, was extremely difficult to decide upon but we feel the side has strength to bat well down the order while also having a good variety for any type of conditions when it comes to its bowling attack," said Lloyd.
