World Cup Trophy
2023 World Cup is over. This time in the World Cup, although Team India showed a wonderful performance from the beginning, the final defeat made everyone sad. The whole country is in despair. Australia, who showed a wonderful performance in the final, lifted the World Cup. Meanwhile, there is no need to tell about the craze around the world for the World Cup, which is held once in four years. Cricket lovers all over the world are eagerly waiting for the World Cup.
Cricket World Cup started in 1975. West Indies won the first World Cup held in England. The first World Cup was named as ‘Prudential World Cup’. The reason for this is that the insurance company ‘Prudential’ is sponsoring this cup. The World Cup trophy is made of silver and gold. Silver plated inside and gold plated on top. After that, the same insurance company sponsored the World Cup in 1979 and 1983.
After 1996 ICC made a new trophy. The responsibility of manufacturing the trophy has been entrusted to a jewelery company called Garrard in London. The trophy, which is made of silver, is plated with gold, which takes two months to make. The World Cup trophy is 60 centimeters tall. The trophy is topped by a golden globe. This globe is supported by three silver columns. These are in the shape of stumps and bails in a vertical row. As a symbol of batting, bowling, fielding… the round globe represents the cricket ball. It is special that the trophy looks the same from any angle. This trophy weighs up to 11 kg.
Meanwhile, for the preparation of the World Cup trophy, about Rs. 31 lakhs will be spent. The name of the winning team is printed on the bottom of the trophy. Only the replica of the trophy will be awarded to the winning team. The actual trophy will be kept at the ICC office in Dubai.
