ICC World Cup: ICC ODI World Cup is to be organized in India this year. The trophy of this World Cup was launched on Monday. The launch of this trophy was very different because it was launched in space. This trophy was launched at a height of one lakh 20 thousand feet from the ground. After this, it returned again to the Narendra Modi Stadium, the world's largest cricket stadium. This was possible because of the stratospheric balloon that was attached to the trophy.

With this, it became the first such trophy in the sports world, which was launched in space. During this, some wonderful pictures of the trophy were also seen. BCCI Secretary Jai Shah has tweeted the video of this launch. Now this trophy will go on tour and will visit 18 countries.

Trophy will visit these countries

The trophy will visit countries like Kuwait, New Zealand, Australia, West Indies, England, South Africa, Pakistan, Bahrain, Malaysia, America, Nigeria, France, Italy, America and India on this tour. This tour will be the biggest ever, in which about 10 lakh fans will be exposed to this trophy. The tour will start from June 27 and after passing through all the countries, this trophy will return to India on September 4

Schedule not released yet

After 2011, ODI World Cup is now being organized in India. Although the ICC has not yet released the schedule of the World Cup, but according to media reports on Monday, the final match of this tournament will be played at the Narendra Modi Stadium, while the semi-final matches will be played in Mumbai and Kolkata. Matches of this World Cup will be played in a total of 12 cities, which include the names of Bangalore, Ahmedabad, Chennai, Dharamshala, Delhi, Guwahati, Kolkata, Hyderabad, Mumbai, Lucknow, Pune and Thiruvananthapuram.

In 2011, India had achieved the title of world champion in its own home. India had won this World Cup under the captaincy of Mahendra Singh Dhoni but after that India could not become the world champion again. This time Team India will try to end the ICC trophy drought by winning this World Cup played at home.
