From being defending champions to not having a single player in the ICC's team of the World T20, it's been quite a sharp decline for MS Dhoni's Indian team.


The ICC on Monday named its eleven and not surprisingly, after losing three consecutive matches in the Super Eights, no Indian player made the cut.
Four Pakistanis feature, including captain Younis Khan who has been named skipper of this team, other than Shahid Afridi, Umar Gul and Kamran Akmal.


However, there was one Indian face figuring in the Women's XI announced by cricket's governing body and it was that of bowler Rumeli Dhar.


The men's team, including 12th man Lasith Maligna, contained four players from Pakistan, three each from South Africa and Sri Lanka and two from the West Indies.


The women's team, led by England skipper Charlotte Edwards, included five players from the winner, England, four from beaten finalist New Zealand and one each from Australia, India and Sri Lanka.


The men's team was chosen by a select group of experts, including former England pacer Jonathan Agnew, cricketer-turned-commentator Ian Bishop, Twenty20 World Cup Tournament Director Steve Elworthy, ICC Match Referee Alan Hurst and Indian journalist Sharda Ugra.


The women's team was selected by ICC Match Referee Chris Broad, former England captain Clare Connor, Steve Elworthy, commentator Alison Mitchell and journalist Jenny Roesler.
