Cricketer Shahid Afridi Named ICC Ambassador for T20 World Cup 2024

Legendary Pakistani cricketer Shahid Afridi has been named as a brand ambassador for the upcoming ICC Men's T20 World Cup 2024. Afridi joins an illustrious group of ambassadors for the highly anticipated tournament, including Indian great Yuvraj Singh, the explosive Chris Gayle from the West Indies, and sprinting icon Usain Bolt.

 

The T20 World Cup 2024, the ninth edition of the international T20 championship, will be co-hosted by the United States and the West Indies from June 1 to 29. This marks the first time a T20 World Cup will feature 20 teams, making it the biggest edition of the tournament yet.

 

Afridi's selection as ambassador is a fitting tribute to his T20 prowess. He was a key player for Pakistan in the inaugural T20 World Cup in 2007, even bagging the Player of the Tournament award despite his team finishing runners-up to India. Cricket fans will also fondly remember his vital role in powering Pakistan to victory in the 2009 T20 World Cup.

 

The inclusion of these cricketing legends and a sporting superstar like Usain Bolt promises to add to the excitement of the T20 World Cup 2024. With a record number of teams participating and big names involved, the tournament promises to be a thrilling spectacle for cricket fans worldwide.
