Dubai: India batswoman Smriti Mandhana has been named in the Women's Team of the Year 2016, the International Cricket Council (ICC) announced.

The women's team of the year, which will be captained by West Indies' Stafanie Taylor, has been added to the list of awards to acknowledge and appreciate outstanding performances of women's cricketers over a 12-month period.

Based on their performance between September 14, 2015 and September 20, 2016, which included the ICC Women's World Twenty20 and the ICC Women's Championship, the players have been selected.

"This is the first time that the ICC has named a women's team of the year. Congratulations to Stafanie Taylor and the rest of her team on their selection. The quality and depth of the women's game continues to grow year by year, with a number of outstanding performances during the voting period, the selectors must have had an exceptionally difficult task in settling on the final 12 players," ICC chief executive David Richardson.

Besides Mandhana, the team features three New Zealanders in Suzie Bates, Rachel Priest and Leigh Kasperek, two Australians Meg Lanning and Ellyse Perry, England's Heather Knight and Anya Shrubshole, West India's Stafanie Taylor and Deandra Dottin and Sune Luus of South Africa.

Kim Garth of Ireland has been included as the 12th player.

The side was selected by a panel consisting of Clare Connor (Chair), Mel Jones and Shubhangi Kulkarni.
