During its journey, the trophy will be on display at domestic and international matches, as well as at various public places, which will enable the fans to capture a very special moment with the most prestigious silverware in the shortest format of the world cricket game. Details of the trophy’s public appearances will be announced by the host boards closer to the time.
ICC Chief Executive David Richardson said: “The Nissan ICC World Twenty20 2016 Trophy Tour has been designed to not only promote the tournament but also to engage with our fans and provide them the first opportunity to get close to the trophy, which will be lifted by the winning captain on 3 April in Kolkata. We would like to thank Nissan for their sponsorship of the Trophy Tour and we are sure it will be a big success as it travels across the world ahead of the ICC World Twenty20 in India next year.”
Roel de Vries, Nissan Corporate Vice-President and Global Head of Marketing & Brand Strategy, added: “We partnered with the ICC to bring cricket fans closer to the game. Fans feel exhilaration and passion when watching a cricket match. Those are the same emotions we want people to experience when driving a Nissan. We hope the Nissan Trophy Tour will build excitement around the world ahead of the ICC World Twenty20.”

Scotland will be the trophy’s first port of call, before it travels to Ireland, England and the Netherlands as part of its European leg.
