The International Cricket Council has announced the Team of the tournament 2019 but no Pakistan find the place in the team. There wasn’t a single Pakistani player in the World Cup team which is captained by New Zealand skipper Kane Williamson, who was named player of the tournament despite his team’s loss in the final.
England, who won their maiden World Cup title, are the most represented with four selections in the team while runners-up the Black Caps have two in the eleven, named by a panel selected by the ICC to honour players who performed well in the tournament.
The other representatives come from the losing semi-finalists India and Australia, who have two each, while Bangladesh’s Shakib Al Hasan rounds out the team.
Alongside Roy opening is India’s Rohit Sharma. One of the easier selections in this XI, considering the Indian star was the tournament’s top run-scorer and cracked a record five centuries in all.
