Prior to the opening match of the ICC World Cup 2023, the Master Blaster will walk out with the trophy to officially open the tournament, having featured in six 50 Over World Cups during his distinguished career.

Sachin Tendulkar said in an official statement issued by the International Cricket Council that his proudest moment in his storied career was winning the ICC World Cup in 2011. Sachin Tendulkar further said :

“From being a ball boy in 1987 to representing the country in six editions, World Cups have always held a special place in my heart. Winning the World Cup in 2011 is the proudest moment of my cricketing journey.

“With so many special teams and players set to compete hard in the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup 2023 here in India, I am excitedly looking forward to this fantastic tournament.

“Marquee events like the World Cup seed dreams in young minds, I hope this edition too inspires young girls and boys to pick up sports and represent their countries at the highest level.”

Claire Furlong, ICC General Manager, Marketing & Communications, said: “It’s a real honour to have Sachin as our Global Ambassador as we celebrate the one-day game and get set for what we know is going to be the biggest Men’s Cricket World Cup ever. He is joined by nine fellow legends of the game who will bring the fans closer to the action and we can’t wait for it all to begin.”
