Their crucial contribution in guiding India to their first World Cup title in 28 years on April 03 fetched the trio of Sachin Tendulkar, Yuvraj Singh and Zaheer Khan a place in the International Cricket Council’s Team of the Tournament.

Kumar Sangakkara has been named the captain of this team of 12 that also features three Sri Lankans —Mahela Jayawardene, Tillakaratne Dilshan and Muttiah Muralitharan.

Indian captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni, who won the man of the final award, however, didn’t make it as his performance with the bat wasn’t up to the mark before the summit clash.

According to a media release by ICC, the team was chosen by a select group of experts who were given the task of picking a balanced side for sub-continental conditions on the basis of performances in the tournament. Statistics were used but were not the sole basis for selections.

Pakistan had only one representative in captain Shahid Afridi while South Africa’s AB de Villiers and Dale Steyn also found a berth in the side.

Shane Watson was the only Australian representative while New Zealand pacer Tim Southee was named the 12th man. No England player featured in the team.

Some of the other names that were discussed included Ross Taylor and Jacob Oram of New Zealand, Jonathan Trott and Graeme Swann of England, Ireland’s Kevin O’Brien, Kemar Roach and Kieron Pollard of the West Indies, Imran Tahir of South Africa, Upal Tharanga and Lasith Malinga of Sri Lanka and the Netherlands’ Ryan ten Doeschate.

A selection panel put together by the ICC has included seven players from finalists India and Sri Lanka in their World Cup team of the tournament, which was announced on Sunday.

The side is captained by Sri Lanka’s Kumar Sangakkara, who is joined by his compatriots Tillakaratne Dilshan, Mahela Jayawardene and Muttiah Muralitharan in the XI.

Sachin Tendulkar, Yuvraj Singh and Zaheer Khan were included from the Indian side that clinched their second World Cup title, while AB de Villiers, Shane Watson, Shahid Afridi and Dale Steyn complete the line-up.

The five-man panel was made up of ICC general manager Dave Richardson, umpire Aleem Dar, match referee Ranjan Madugalle, journalist and broadcaster Christopher Martin-Jenkins and Sports Illustrated’s deputy editor Anand Vasu.

The same panel on Saturday night named Yuvraj Singh the man of the tournament for his 362 runs and 15 wickets.
