The International Cricket Council (ICC) has chosen Sachin Tendulkar, a famous cricket player from India, as the Global Ambassador for the Men’s Cricket World Cup 2023. The tournament is about to start in just two days. Sachin Tendulkar, who has played in six World Cups during his career, will hold the Men’s Cricket World Cup Trophy before the first match at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad, which marks the beginning of the tournament.
Sachin Tendulkar said, “I started as a ball boy in 1987, and now I’ve played in six World Cups. World Cups have always been special to me. Winning the World Cup in 2011 was the proudest moment of my cricket journey. I’m really looking forward to this fantastic tournament in India, with so many great teams and players. These World Cups inspire young boys and girls to play sports and represent their countries at the highest level.”
The Men’s Cricket World Cup 2023 will have several other cricket legends as ambassadors, including Vivian Richards from the West Indies, AB de Villiers from South Africa, Eoin Morgan from England, Aaron Finch from Australia, Muttiah Muralitharan from Sri Lanka, Ross Taylor from New Zealand, Suresh Raina and Mithali Raj from India, and Mohammad Hafeez from Pakistan.

Claire Furlong, ICC General Manager of Marketing & Communications, said, “Having Sachin as our Global Ambassador is a great honor as we celebrate one-day cricket and prepare for the biggest Men’s Cricket World Cup ever. He is joined by nine other cricket legends who will bring fans closer to the action. We’re excited for it all to begin.”
