World Cup '13 Team of the Tournament

England might not have come home with the world cup, but they did "win" the battle for inclusion in the ICC's Team of the Tournament, with 4 players in the 11 (Edwards, Colvin, Brunt and Shrubsole) to Australia's 3½ (Haynes, Fields and Schutt, with Ferling named as 12th Man... er sorry... 12th "Player").

This honor is well-deserved in all four cases, with opening bat Charlotte Edwards scoring two centuries; the strike bowling partnership of Anya Shrubsole and Katherine Brunt taking 25 wickets between them (despite Shrubsole missing (in effect) two games); and Holly Colvin bowling more overs than anyone else in the tournament with impressive economy and control.
