New York State of Mind

London: West Indies legend and one of the most famous players of white-ball cricket, Chris Gayle lit up New York’s Empire State Building to launch the trophy tour of the upcoming ICC Men’s T20 along with USA’s Ali Khan. The World Cup 2024 Global Trophy Tour will visit 15 countries, including all nine host venues, in the countdown to the historic ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2024 to be held in the West Indies and the USA.

The ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2024 Trophy Tour began recently with two-time champion Chris Gayle and USA star Ali Khan lighting up the iconic skyscraper as fans began the countdown to the biggest global T20 cricket event ever.

An official ceremony to launch the Trophy Tour was held at the Empire State Building, where Gayle and Khan had the honor of lighting up New York’s most iconic building in navy and pink. Sitting on top of the 381-metre skyscraper is the prize for which all 20 teams will compete for the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup trophy in the West Indies and the USA from June 1-29, the ICC said..

Following overwhelming demand with over 3 million ticket applications in the public ballot, additional tickets have been issued for 51 of the 55 matches, including fixtures where the allocations had previously been exhausted. The event will mark the first time the ICC World Cup will be held in the United States, featuring eight matches in a brand-new, state-of-the-art modular 34,000-capacity stadium in Nassau County, New York.
