April 29, 2024

Indian cricket icon Yuvraj Singh has been announced as an ambassador of the upcoming ICC Men’s T20 World Cup

Singh, a former T20 World Cup champion, joins the likes of Chris Gaye and Usain Bolt as ambassadors for the biennial event.

The 2024 ICC Men’s T20 World Cup is scheduled to be held between June 1 and 29, 2024, and is being co-hosted by the US and the West Indies. 

Yuvraj Singh commented:

Some of my fondest cricketing memories have come from playing at the T20 World Cup, including hitting six sixes in an over, so it’s very exciting to be part of this edition, which is set to be the biggest one yet. The West Indies is a great place to play cricket with the fans coming to watch creating a vibe that is completely unique to that part of the world, while cricket is also expanding in the USA and I’m excited to be part of that growth through the T20 World Cup.India’s clash against Pakistan in New York is going to be one of the biggest sporting fixtures in the world this year, so it’s a privilege to be a part of and to witness the best players in the world playing in a new stadium.

Claire Furlong, ICC General Manager – Marketing & Communications, added:

It’s an honour to have Yuvraj as an ICC Men’s T20 World Cup Ambassador. His name is synonymous with the T20 World Cup, owning one of the event’s most iconic moments when he became the first player to hit six sixes in a T20 International. He joins Chris Gayle and Usain Bolt as the first ambassadors to be announced, who will each add to the excitement of what will be the biggest T20 World Cup ever.
