Chairman of the ICC Awards selection panel, Lloyd said: "The ODI team of the year reflects the success of India with four players selected - Virender Sehwag, Yuvraj Singh, M.S. Dhoni and Zaheer Khan. Yuvraj was, of course, the player of the tournament and MS Dhoni, the man of the match in the final, whilst fellow finalists Sri Lanka has three players in the side."
