Dubai: In the lines of some tremendous display of Cricket in the recently concluded women's World Cup, Indian women's team captain Mithali Raj was named skipper of the ICC Women's World Cup 2017 team with all-rounders Harmanpreet Kaur and Deepti Sharma in the side.

Mithali led from the front, scoring 409 runs in the tournament to power the Women-in-Blue to the final, which they lost by a mere nine runs against England at the Lord's on Sunday.

Among others, the ICC side has four English players, including Player of the Tournament Tamsin Beaumont, Player of the Final Anya Shrubsole, wicket-keeper Sarah Taylor and left-arm spinner Alex Hartley; three from South Africa, including opener Laura Wolvaardt and bowlers Marizanne Kapp and Dane van Niekerk; and Australia all-rounder Ellyse Perry.

England's Natalie Sciver, who scored 369 runs and took seven wickets, was chosen as the 12th player.
