Australia spinner Adam Zampa takes T20 World Cup trophy underwater, see VIRAL pics | Cricket News

The ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2022 trophy has reached one of Australia’s most iconic natural wonders, with Australia leg-spinner Adam Zampa taking the prized silverware to the clear waters of the Great Barrier Reef.

Secured in a custom-made case, the trophy was ferried across by Zampa and local cricket fans to Reef Magic Pontoon, off Cairns, which gives visitors the opportunity to get an underwater seat to see the colours and sea life of the reef.

The visit is part of the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup Trophy Tour, driven by Nissan, which will touch down in 21 locations across all eight Australian States and Territories in addition to 12 other countries.

“Days like today are a reminder of how lucky we are to live in a country with so much natural beauty. It’s a privilege to be able to bring the World Cup trophy to this precious place and encourage fans around the world to get to Australia later this year,” ICC quoted Adam Zampa as saying.

“The cricket is going to be amazing with all the best teams in the world here, but as fans will see as part of the Trophy Tour, there’s so much else to see and do while they’re here,” he added.

The T20 World Cup will feature 16 international teams, bringing fans together from around the world for the global showpiece event and giving them the opportunity to experience the best of Australia while they are here for the cricket.

Over 100,000 international visitors are anticipated to attend the event, which is being played from October 16 to November 13 across seven host cities.
