All-rounder Deandra Dottin was the only players named in the all-star team for the just concluded ICC Women’s Twenty20 World Cup.

While the hosts underperformed in failing to defend their title, Dottin stood out especially with the ball as she claimed the joint most wickets (10), along with Australian medium-fast bowler Megan Schutt and teammate, off-spinner Ashleigh Gardner.

Dottin, 27, produced a career-best figures of five for five against Bangladesh as West Indies got their campaign off to a start with a 60-run victory in Guyana.

With the bat, she scored 121 runs — the most by a West Indies player — which was good enough to place her in the top 10 for the tournament.

Dottin had a top-score of 49 against Sri Lanka in St. Lucia and also struck 46 as West Indies pulled off a dramatic last over victory over nemesis England in their final preliminary match at the same venue.

The Barbadian has remained one of the Caribbean side’s leading players in both formats, since making her debut as a 17-year-old.

Despite going down by eight wickets to Australia in the final, England boasts of the most players in the XI with three- wicketkeeper Amy Jones, left-arm spinner Kristie Gordon and seamers Anya Shrubsole.

Player of the Tournament Alyssa Healy, who topped the batting averages with 225 runs, was one of two Australian players in the XI with Ellyse Perry included for her nine wickets.
