After being launched 1,20,000 feet into the air, the coveted silverware made a spectacular arrival at the Narendra Modi Cricket Stadium in Ahmedabad, marking a first in the history of Cricket's international governing body's World Cup trophy tour.
This was accomplished by tethering the trophy to a custom-made stratospheric balloon and taking some breathtaking photos of it from the edge of Earth's atmosphere using 4K cameras.
The 2023 edition of the trophy tour will be the largest one yet, bringing the silverware to fans in more locations than ever before.
According to a press release by the International Cricket Council (ICC), the ICC Men's Cricket World Cup trophy will be shown in 18 countries beginning June 27.
These countries include Kuwait, Bahrain, Malaysia, the United States of America, Nigeria, Uganda, France, Italy, the United Kingdom, and the host country, India.
The tour will allow one million fans to get up close and personal with the silverware through creative activations and events in different nations.
"The ICC Men's Cricket World Cup Trophy Tour is an important milestone in the countdown to what will be the biggest ICC Men's Cricket World Cup ever," stated ICC Chief Executive Geoff Allardice.
Grateful for your time!
