The 2019 Cricket World Cup trophy will reach Lahore on Wednesday as part of its world tour.
The Garrard-made trophy, during its six-day Pakistan leg of the tour, will travel to three cities: Lahore, Islamabad and Karachi.
The trophy is scheduled to be exhibited in Lahore from October 3 to 4 where it will be paraded from the Gaddafi Stadium to Shaukat Khanum Hospital on a bus.
The trophy, whose replicas are given to the winners of ICC’s 50-over world cups, will next be taken to Islamabad, where it will again go on display for two days.
The final stop of the trophy’s tour will be in Karachi, where fans will be able to see it on October 7 and 8.
