Bangladesh is harboring big dreams around the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup 2023. The formal trophy presentation of the World Cup has taken place at the Mawa Point of the iconic Padma Bridge even before the start of the tournament. On Monday afternoon, this trophy presentation was held under tight security arrangements by the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB). Apart from the media, local residents were also seen at the scene.
According to the ICC guidelines, the trophy presentation for the World Cup can be held in special locations or in front of landmarks. This time, at the request of the BCB, the trophy presentation is taking place on the Padma Bridge. This bridge, stretching 15 kilometers, is considered the most challenging construction project in Bangladesh’s history. The attractive trophy will arrive in Bangladesh from Sri Lanka on Sunday night. This trophy will be in Bangladesh for three days. It was first brought to the Padma Bridge today. Tomorrow, it will be at the Mirpur Home of Cricket from 9 am to 12 pm. National team players, both male and female, will have the opportunity to see the trophy there. In addition, the trophy will be available for the current and former cricketers, officials, organizations, and the media.
On August 9, the general public will be able to see the trophy. People can take photos with the trophy at the Bashundhara City Shopping Mall from 11 am to 8 pm. The ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup 2023 trophy was unveiled in June. The trophy descended from the stratosphere, from a height of 120,000 feet above the Earth’s surface, and arrived at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad. The trophy will visit more than 40 cities in 18 countries. From Bangladesh, the trophy will go to Kuwait. The global tour of the trophy will conclude in South Africa on September 3. Its final destination will be India.
The ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup is set to commence on October 5. The participation of ten teams will continue until November 19. A total of 48 matches will be played in 10 venues across 10 cities in India within a span of 46 days.
