The International Cricket Council (ICC) today unveiled the mascots for the upcoming ODI World Cup at an event in Gurugram. According to the ICC, the unnamed male and female mascots represent distinct traits that stand as symbols of both gender equality and diversity.

ICC Head of Events Chris Tetley said that in keeping with the ICC’s and cricket’s objective of connecting with the next generation of cricket fans, these mascots have the ability to engage and delight children, developing a lifelong love for the sport beyond ICC events.

The mascots were unveiled during an event in Gurugram in India in the presence of the captains of the reigning U19 World Cup Champions, Yash Dhull and Shafali Verma.

Originating from a distant cricket utopia called the Crictoverse, the male and female mascots represent distinct traits that stand as symbols of both gender equality and diversity.

With a turbo-powered arm propelling fireballs at lightning speed, the female character’s pinpoint accuracy leaves even the boldest batters in awe. Her unmatched reflexes, fierce flexibility, and fervent determination make her a supercharged fast bowling prowess. Adorned with a belt carrying six power cricket orbs, each strategically prepared for various game-changing tactics, she stands ever-ready to set the game aflame.
