Edwards was handed the captaincy of the ICC nominated side - for the second consecutive time - and an opening batting spot due to her 200 runs during the tournament, while Sarah Taylor takes the wicket-keeper position having taken two catches and four stumpings.
Also selected is bowler Anya Shrubsole, who was named player of the tournament on Sunday, and Natalie Sciver, the second leading wicket-taker with 10 dismissals.
The England Women's quartet have been chosen based on their performances across six matches, culminating in the six-wicket defeat to Australia in Sunday's final.
Shrubsole was delighted to receive recognition for her performance and is hopeful the tournament has inspired young girls to take part in the sport.
"Since our very first match against the West Indies in Sylhet, I have thoroughly enjoyed playing and bowling in this tournament," Shrubsole said.
"It is always nice to receive recognition such as this, but the main thing is that I have been able to contribute to a successful England team over the past two weeks.
"This tournament has been a wonderful demonstration of the increasing standard of women's cricket across the world.
"It is an exciting time to be playing the game, and I hope we have helped to inspire young girls everywhere to pick up a bat and ball and get involved."
