World-Cup Trophy-An ICC’s April fool prank.


ICC Cricket World-Cup 2011 was played amongst 14 teams around the globe to get the shining champions tag + the Champions trophy. Although Indian Cricket team clinched the Champions tag after beating Srilanka in the final. But when it came to the trophy, Indians were fooled on the ‘2nd’ day of ‘April’, after the final, when ICC awarded a Xerox (alike ) of  World-Cup trophy to the Indian Team. The celebrating Indian team & nation, after ending a span of 28 years of darkness in World one -day Championship, again entered the gloom when Indian media announced “The real trophy, valued at about $130,000 in money terms, but priceless for any cricket lover, was not at the Wankhede stadium, as the world had been led to believe,” reported India Today. It was also reported that the real trophy had been seized by the Mumbai customs on its arrival from Colombo. ICC was, thus, successful in playing an April fool prank on Indians 😛 !
