Uganda is the first of three African countries to host the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup trophy ahead of this year’s World Cup slated for 5th to 19th November in India.
The third day of the tour saw the trophy hosted at Busoga College Mwiri, a school that has developed many of the country’s best cricket talents.
Jinja, a cricket hotspot in Uganda is a significant part of the trophy’s tour across 18 global cities, providing cricket enthusiasts with an up-close experience and showcasing Uganda’s vibrant tourism industry.
The ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup trophy is the ultimate reward for the tournament’s victors, and Australia holds the record with five wins. The current titleholders are England, who clinched victory in the 2019 final against New Zealand on their home turf.
The trophy was earlier hosted at the State House in Entebbe, with Vice President Jessica Alupo receiving it on behalf of the President.
