ICC Men’s T20 World Cup Trophy Tour will take place for the first time across four continents. The Trophy is set to arrive in Nepal as well. The countdown for the upcoming T20 WC officially begins today with exactly 100 days remaining. Having already hosted two 50-over World Cups (jointly in 1992), Australia is set to host 16-team T20 World Cup for the first time.
Kathmandu is also one of the 35 stops where fans will have a glimpse of the T20 World Cup Trophy. Along with Nepal, the Trophy tour will take place in Fiji, Finland, Germany, P.N.G, Ghana, Indonesia, Japan, Scotland, Namibia, Singapore, and Vanuatu. The trophy tour has officially begun from Melbourne and will end in Geelong where the first match between Namibia and Scotland gets underway.
The Trophy is set for a 2-day tour in Kathmandu on August 30 and 31. The location is yet to be known in Kathmandu. Earlier in 2018, the FIFA World Cup trophy was brought to Nepal in Kathmandu and Pokhara.
