Sachin Tendulkar: The Super Boss for ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup 2023
Just before the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup 2023 began, the International Cricket Council (ICC) did something super cool. They said, “Hey Sachin, you’re the Super Ambassador for this super big event!” Why is this a big deal, you ask? Well, Sachin is not your regular cricket player. He’s a cricket superhero who played in six 50-over World Cups! And now, he’s going to do something super cool by giving the Men’s Cricket World Cup Trophy during the first game at Ahmedabad’s Narendra Modi Stadium.
Tendulkar’s Personal Story with World Cups
Sachin Tendulkar has a special story with the Cricket World Cups. He didn’t start as a superstar. He began as a ball boy during the 1987 World Cup. That’s like being the helper of the big players! It’s super awesome to think that from those early days, he went on to play for India in six World Cup tournaments. His best memory from those times? For sure, it’s when India won the 2011 World Cup. That’s like the best day ever in his cricket life.
Tendulkar is also super excited about the next tournament. He thinks it’s going to be super fun and that events like the World Cup make young players excited to play sports and make their countries proud.
A Team of Cricket Superstars
The next Cricket World Cup is not just about Sachin; it has a team of cricket superheroes too. This team has cricket legends like Vivian Richards, AB de Villiers, Eoin Morgan, Aaron Finch, Muttiah Muralitharan, Ross Taylor, Suresh Raina, Mithali Raj, and Mohammad Hafeez.
These cricket superheroes are not just there for fun. They do super things like talking to fans, telling them smart cricket things, and showing up at games to make everything even more awesome.
