Kohli kisses the Border-Gavaskar Trophy.

Indian captain Virat Kohli has been chosen the captain of ICC Men's ODI and Test Teams of the Year after a stellar 2018 which saw him end the year as the top-ranked batsman in both the formats.

With three cricketers each from India and New Zealand forming part of the Test team, the selection mirrors the successes of these two teams in the longest format in the preceding year. While India secured an unprecedented four overseas Test wins in South Africa, England and Australia, New Zealand trumped Pakistan in their own backyard for a famous 2-1 series victory.

From India young sensation Rishabh Pant finds a place as the wicketkeeper in the Test team while his teammate and fast-bowling phenomenon Jasprit Bumrah was selected in both the ODI and Test teams. Indian opener Rohit Sharma and mystery-spinner Kuldeep Yadav join Kohli and Bumrah to form an India-dominated ODI team of the year. England, who are the No. 1 ranked ODI side in the world share the honours with India in the respective team with four of their cricketers including wicket-keeper Jos Buttler finding a place in the side.
