As promised yesterday here I am with a picture of the trophy. It truly is a beauty.
On display in the main hall of the IOC building, it glowed in all its magnificence and was a sight to see. It perfectly fits the prestige of the tournament which it represents. And I had the opportunity to see it as close as one possibly could.
It consists of a globe in the shape of a cricket ball, supported by three pillars of wickets. The band around the globe bears the legend: 'ICC Cricket World Cup'. I was close enough to see that.
If you click on any of these pictures, you will be able to see the globe as I saw it, with all the details.
