The International Cricket Council (ICC) has appointed Sachin Tendulkar as the Global Ambassador for the upcoming ICC World Cup 2023.
He will walk out with the coveted trophy before the opening game between England and New Zealand at the Narendra Modi Stadium on October 5.
“From being a ball boy in the 1987 World Cup to playing in six editions, World Cup has a special place in my heart. Winning the trophy in 2011 is the proudest moment of my journey,” he said.
“With so many big players set to compete in the ICC World Cup 2023, I am eagerly waiting for the tournament. I hope this edition inspires young girls and boys to pick up sports and represent their countries,” he added.
