History

The Prudential Cups trophy were awarded to the winners of the World Cup from 1975-1983 when Prudential plc was the primary sponsors. The trophies' designs changed when the sponsors changed until the 1999 World Cup. So the first three world cups had a similar trophy while 1987, 1992 and 1996 had different trophies because of different sponsors until the International Cricket Council decided to award its own trophy.

The current trophy was created for the 1999 championships and is the first permanent prize in the tournament's history.[1] The trophy was designed and produced in London by a team of craftsmen from Garrard & Co (the Crown Jewellers). The whole process was completed over a period of two months time.

[edit] ICC Cricket World Cup Trophy

The Cricket World Cup Trophy is presented to the winning team of the Cricket World Cup. The current trophy is 60 cm high, is made from silver and gild, and features a golden globe held up by three silver columns. The columns, shaped as stumps and bails, represents the three fundamental aspects of cricket: batting, bowling and fielding, while the globe characterises a cricket ball.[2] It is designed with platonic dimensions, so that it can be easily recognised from any angle. The trophy weighs approximately 11 kilograms and has the names of the previous winners inscribed on its base. There is still room for another ten teams to have their name inscribed.

[edit] Status

 
The ICC keeps the trophy with the inscriptions (left) while an exact replica without the inscriptions (right) is awarded to the winners.

The actual trophy is kept by the International Cricket Council but a replica, which is identical in all aspects apart from the inscription of the previous champions, is awarded to the winning team and remains in their possession.
