Making of the ICC Cricket World Cup Trophy – Manufacturing

ICC CWC 2019

If you think it’s just another trophy, well, think again, because the ICC Cricket World Cup winners don’t take home just another trophy.

The manufacturing process - at the end of the design, the engraving, and all else - is long-drawn-out and intricate.

“None of the components you can buy," says Steven Ottewill, the Trophy Director. "You can’t say, ‘I’ll have one of those and one of those’.” 

A number of people are involved in the process, and they need time, patience, and a lot of love towards their craft to pull it off. “It’s a challenging piece to make,” says James Longstaff, the Silversmith. Ben Filip, the Polisher, says with a laugh, “It has to be perfect.” And it is, isn’t it?
