The ICC included a maximum of three players from Pakistan and South Africa each, two from Australia and one from England, Bangladesh, and Sri Lanka.

Interestingly, no Indian player was picked in the team of the year by the apex cricketing body. Further, they didn’t select any player from the T20 World Cup 2021 finalists New Zealand, who lost the contest against Australia by eight wickets.
