West Indies created history by beating Australia in the final of the ICC Women’s World T20 2016 as they became only the third side to become Women’s World Champions in T20s, after England and Australia.

Set 149 to win, the West Indian women made light work of a stiff target as they got a 120-run opening partnership and won it with eight wickets and three balls to spare. Four fifties were scored and there were plenty of memorable performers in the final alone.

But who makes it to the team of the tournament? Here’s your answer:

Suzie Bates

Bates led from the front

Coming into the tournament, Suzie Bates was not only New Zealand's captain but also arguably the second-best all-rounder behind Ellyse Perry. Although she only picked up two wickets, she more than made up for it with their exploits with the bat.

Only three players scored more than Bates, who also held the record for the highest score in the tournament. Her 82 against Ireland helped her side thrash them by 93 runs and although New Zealand were unlucky to be dumped in the semi-finals by the eventual winners, they got there thanks to her astute leadership.
