The ICC Men’s ODI World Cup 2023 trophy has arrived in Pakistan for a three-day tour filled with memorable moments and engaging activities, as announced by the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) on Tuesday.

The cricket trophy is a symbol of excellence in the cricketing world. It landed in Lahore on September 4 and is scheduled to depart on September 6 as reported by the PCB.

The trophy’s journey commenced in India, the tournament’s host, on June 27. Before reaching Pakistan, it traversed through Australia, New Zealand, Papua New Guinea, the United States, West Indies, Bangladesh, Kuwait, Bahrain, Italy, France, and England.

Originally, the World Cup trophy was set to be in Pakistan from July 31 to August 4. However, its arrival was delayed due to uncertainties regarding Pakistan’s participation in the cricket world cup.

During this brief yet significant visit, the trophy is making swift stops at historical landmarks, cricket academies, and educational institutions, offering fans from diverse backgrounds an opportunity to witness cricket’s glory up close, as stated by the cricket board.

On September 6, at 10:00 am, the trophy will be on display at the National Cricket Academy’s outdoor area for 40 minutes.

The ICC Men’s ODI World Cup 2023 will see ten teams competing for the prestigious title.
