ICC posted a photo of Shah Rukh Khan with ICC trophy (Twitter/@ICC)

On Wednesday, the ICC took to Twitter to post a photo of Shah Rukh Khan in which his eyes were set on ODI World Cup Trophy.

The International Cricket Council (ICC) posted a photo of Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan with the ODI World Cup trophy to set the internet on fire. The BCCI is all set to host the mega ICC tournament later this year as the governing body already kickstarted the trophy tour last month. On Wednesday, the ICC took to Twitter to post a photo of Shahrukh in which his eyes were set on the coveted trophy.

“King Khan #CWC23 Trophy It’s nearly here …” ICC captioned the post.

The photo went viral on Twitter and gained over 10,000 likes within 30 minutes. The same post on Instagram garnered over 1,50,000 likes in the same amount of time.

Shahrukh has often expressed his love for the game of cricket as he also owns a cricket team in Indian Premier League – Kolkata Knight Riders. He also owns franchises in other T20 leagues including Caribbean Premier League, Major League Cricket and UAE’s ILT20 League.

In the past, SRK was also seen supporting the Indian cricket team from the stands and 2007 T20 World Cup Final being the most memorable one.

The Trophy tour will conclude on September 4 when the cup will return back to India.

Speaking about the Trophy Tour, ICC Chief Executive Geoff Allardice said, “The ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup Trophy Tour is an important milestone in the countdown to what will be the biggest ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup ever. This Tour will see the iconic silverware meet heads of states, launch community initiatives and support cricket development programmes in addition to visiting some of the most iconic landmarks around the globe.

The 2023 ODI World Cup will begin on the 5th of October and the final will be held on the 19th of November. The magnificent Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad will be the venue for the opening and closing games as India will try to bring back the cup on home soil.

The finalists of the 2019 showpiece event, England and New Zealand will face each other in the curtain riser, while India begin their campaign on the 8th of October against Australia. Meanwhile, the Narendra Modi Stadium will host the marquee India vs Pakistan clash on October 15.
