Alastair Cook has been named captain of the
International Cricket Council s Test team of the
year, while England team-mates Joe Root and Stuart
Broad are also included in the line-up.
After a couple of lean years with the bat, Cook
has been sensational for much of the last 12 months
and that is reflected in him being the current leading
Test run-scorer in 2015.
Having also skippered England to Ashes glory,
Cook was an obvious choice to get his fourth selection
and second as captain, having achieved the honour
two years ago.
Fellow batsman Root was England s standout per-
former throughout the summer, scoring two pivotal
centuries against Australia and he currently sits joint-
top of the Test batting rankings.
While he was controversially overlooked by the
BBC s Sports Personality of the Year panel, the ICC
has also named Root as 12th man in its one-day team
of the year - England s only representative.
Broad is also included in the ICC s Test team for
the fifth time since 2009, with the 29-year-old the
leading fast bowling wicket-taker this year.
That included his eight for 15 on his home ground
of Trent Bridge in the fourth Test against Australia,
the best figures of his career and a key moment in
England regaining the Ashes.
Australia captain Steve Smith and New Zealand s
left-arm paceman Trent Boult have been named in
both the Test and ODI teams. The 50-over team is
