Three England players and four South Africans are named in the ICC Test team of the year.

England trio Alastair Cook, Stuart Broad and Matt Prior have been named in the ICC Test team of the year.

The team is dominated by players from the top two Test nations England and South Africa, with four Proteas players named and a player each from Pakistan, Sri Lanka, West Indies and Australia - Michael Clark captaining the XI.

ICC chief executive David Richardson said: "Those selected can be justifiably proud of their achievements and well deserving of the recognition they receive as great cricketers of their era.

"The quality of the Test cricket played over the course of the year has been exceptional and I did not envy the selectors in their task of selecting the best. Congratulations to those who have made it. They make a formidable team."
