“Cricket in India is much more than a sport,” said Thomas Kuehl, president, Nissan India Operations. “We take pride in being an integral part of this sport, which unites the nation. As the official car, the new Nissan Kicks makes a debut for our consumers in the country and is proud to drive the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 Trophy Tour to millions of fans across India.”
The India leg of the tour will see the Nissan Kicks take the baton and carry the ICC Cricket World Cup trophy across eight major cities starting from Mumbai and covering Pune, Ahmedabad, Bangalore, Chennai, Kolkata, Hyderabad and Delhi/NCR. As part of the tour, the trophy and Kicks will be on display at key locations in each of the cities including shopping malls, colleges and business centers.
Cricket fans will get a chance to see the trophy before Team India embarks on its mission to win the ICC Cricket World Cup for the third time – after 1983 and 2011. Familiar celebrities in the cricketing world like Gautam Gambhir, Akash Chopra, Gaurav Kapur and Mayanti Langer will be part of the Trophy Tour activations as well. The ICC Cricket World Cup is scheduled from May 30 to July 14, 2019 and will be hosted by England and Wales.
