Choosing the side as the 'Team of the Year', the newspaper said, "Their 2-0 Test series victory over Australia officially ended their opponents' era of relentless domination. And then England suffered. Talent oozes from their every pore.

"Retiring legends are being replaced with astonishing ease. There is depth in every department, and in Mahendra Singh Dhoni they possess not just a wonderful leader but a wonderfully impressive man too," Steve James wrote in the daily.

Describing Tendulkar's overtaking of Brian Lara as Test cricket's highest run scorer as 'Feat of the Year', the writer said it reflected "genuine confirmation of greatness".

"What more can you say? Maybe that his hands are clearly too low on the bat handle. He'd never get away with that as a youngster in England."
