For the ODI World Cup, the ICC chooses Sachin Tendulkar as its “Global Ambassador.” The iconic Sachin Tendulkar was selected on Tuesday by the International Cricket Council as the ‘Global Ambassador’ for the men’s Cricket World Cup 2023, which gets underway on Thursday in Ahmedabad.

Before the first match between England and New Zealand, Tendulkar, who has an impressive record of participating in six 50-over World Cups in his illustrious career, will leave with the World Cup trophy, officially launching the competition.

“World Cups have always held a particular place in my heart, from serving as a ball boy in 1987 to representing the nation in six editions. The finest event of my career in cricket has been winning the World Cup in 2011,” Tendulkar was quoted as saying in a news release.

“I am eagerly anticipating this amazing tournament since there are so many special teams and players who are ready to compete fiercely in the World Cup here in India. Famous events like the World Cup inspire young people’s dreams, and I hope that this edition also motivates them to take up sports and represent their nations at the highest level.

Vivian Richards of the West Indies, South Africa’s AB de Villiers, England’s World Cup-winning captain Eoin Morgan, Australia’s Aaron Finch, Sri Lanka’s legendary spinner Muttiah Muralitharan, New Zealand’s Ross Taylor, India’s Suresh Raina and former captain Mithali Raj, and Pakistan’s all-rounder Mohammad Hafeez will all be ICC ambassadors for the biggest Cricket World Cup ever.

“It’s a real honor to have Sachin as our Global Ambassador as we celebrate the one-day game and get ready for what we know will be the biggest Men’s Cricket World Cup ever,” said Claire Furlong, ICC General Manager, Marketing & Communications.

We can’t wait for it all to start. He is joined by nine other sports luminaries who will bring the audience closer to the action.
