Fake World Cup Trophy, World Cup Trophy with Mumbai customs is promotional cup says CBEC

Fake World Cup Trophy, World Cup Trophy with Mumbai customs is promotional cup says CBEC

The Customs said that the ICC Trophy in the custody of Mumbai Airport Customs is a promotional cup which will be taken to the ICC Headquarters in Dubai and has nothing to do with the World Cup given to the winning Indian cricket team on Saturday.

Dismissing reports that the Cup given to the Indian team was a fake, the Central Board of Excise and Customs (CBEC) issued a statement to say that BCCI had asked the customs to keep the "ICC Perpetual Trophy" in its custody since there was no clearance from the government for its import into the country.

The CBEC denied that the "original ICC Cricket World Cup 2011" was lying in the Airport Customs Warehouse in Mumbai.

It quoted ICC statement to say that the trophy seized by the customs was the "promotional, perpetual" trophy which remains in the keeping of the ICC at its headquarters in Dubai.
