Players who were considered included AB de Villiers and Dale Steyn of South Africa, David Warner of Australia, Tillakaratne Dilshan of Sri Lanka, Kieron Pollard, Dwayne Smith and Sunil Narine of the West Indies.

In the womenís side, five players from champion Australia are represented while beaten finalist England has four representatives in the side including Edwards.

The team also features players from India, West Indies and New Zealand.

The panel also struggled with deciding the final 12 for the womenís team and players who were considered included Danielle Wyatt and Lydia Greenway of England, Sophie Devine of New Zealand, Deandra Dottin of West Indies, Erin Osborne of Australia and South Africaís Dane van Niekerk.
