With tremendous fanfare, the ICC World Cup 2023 trophy arrives in Guwahati. The Assam Cricket Association (ACA) Stadium in Barsapara, one of the three venues where the warm-up games, including the marquee match featuring India and England, will be held later this month, hosted a grand welcome for the ICC World Cup 2023 trophy on Wednesday. This trophy is one of the most coveted prizes in the world of cricket.

At the 91 Yards Club auditorium, which is located on the grounds of the ACA Stadium, here, BCCI joint secretary Devajit Saikia, ACA president Taranga Gogoi, and ACA secretary Tridib Konwar officially unveiled the iconic cutlery in front of the apex council members and ex-apex council members, as well as former cricketers and a host of cricket enthusiasts.

The ICC World Cup Trophy has visited 18 nations since it went to space, according to Saikia. “Until this point, no prize has travelled thus far in the sky. “We are incredibly honoured and thrilled to have the trophy in Guwahati,” Saikia told the crowded audience.

The trophy was launched spectacularly, reaching a height of 1,20,000 feet before coming to rest at Ahmedabad’s Narendra Modi Stadium, the largest cricket stadium in the world and the site of the ICC World Cup 2023 final on November 19.

The tour of the ICC World Cup 2023 trophy has been underway in India, the competition’s hosts, since June 27. It has visited places like Australia, New Zealand, Papua New Guinea, the USA, Bangladesh, Kuwait, Bahrain, Italy, France, and England. It has also been to the West Indies.
