The International Cricket Council ( ICC) Men’s T20 world cup trophy that will be played later this year in Australia is being taken on a tour around the country this week, which the cricket team explains is a special gesture from the Cricket world.

The trophy tour saw a historic photo shoot held yesterday in Windhoek at the Christuskirche Church in front of Parliament, with two Ovahimba speaking ladies captured with the trophy, which according to the organizers was aimed at promoting and celebrating Namibia’s uniqueness.

Speaking to Informanté, Johan Muller the cricket Chief Executive Officer (CEO), stated that the idea behind the tour is to connect Namibia to the world, as well to promote some of the best tourist attraction sceneries in the country.

“We are trying to connect the trophy and the rest of the world to the Namibian culture. We will fly to Sossusvlei to show how beautiful and unique Namibia is, and we will also fly to Etosha to show them the park” Muller said

Muller further extended his gratitude to the Namibian nation for their support to the Cricket squad that will be representing the land of the brave at the 2022 ICC Men’s T20 Cricket World Cup next month, adding that people can follow the games on all supper sport channels.

“It is because of the Namibian community and it’s continuous support that the team has done so well and last year’s world cup has put us in the map of the cricket world. We are grateful” he concluded

Namibia has been paired alongside Sri Lanka, Netherlands and UAE in Group A of the Round 1 stage of the 2022 tournament. They will open their campaign against Sri Lanka on 16 October at Kardinia Park in Geelong. Namibia will also face Netherlands on 18 October and UAE on 20 October at the same venue.
