Following the conclusion of the World Cup 2019, the ICC has named the team of the tournament. Only two Indians feature in the team -- Rohit Sharma and Jasprit Bumrah -- while losing finalist leader Kane Williamson will captain the side.

The 2019 Cricket World Cup has not disappointed as cricket fans around the world have been treated with some superb cricket throughout the group stages, which had just about everything.

Bangladesh all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan reiterated his numero uno status as the World's number one all-rounder

To begin with, let's understand why the cricketing world is so fascinated by all-rounders. In layman terms, you have a wicket-keeper who bats a bit and you have five batsmen and five bowlers. In effect, you have six people who can bat and five people who can bowl as their primary skill, out of the 11 players in the team. Now, if a couple of the batsmen can bowl a bit and a couple of bowlers can bat a bit, it gives immense balance to the side as the captain then has more options at his disposal.

During the first T20I against the Windies, in Sylhet, Bangladesh captain Shakib Al Hasan was found to have breached breaching Level 1 of the ICC Code of Conduct and has been fined 15 per cent of his match fee.
