Four England players have been named in the International Cricket Council's ODI team of the year for 2018.
Joe Root, Jonny Bairstow, Ben Stokes and Jos Buttler all made it into the side after a year which saw England beat Australia by 242 runs at Trent Bridge after scoring a world-record 481 for six.
However, no England players made it into the Test team of the year, with New Zealand trio Tom Latham, Kane Williamson and Henry Nicholls among those selected, alongside India skipper Virat Kohli, who was named as captain of both the Test and ODI sides.
Root said: "It feels really great to be named in the ICC ODI squad and the fact that three of my team-mates are there along with me, makes it extra special.
"We had a fine year and expectations are on the rise as we look forward to playing the ICC Cricket World Cup at home this year."
