BCCI accepted original is with customs.

Few Media reports claimed that the world cup trophy given to Indian Cricket team
Was a fake and that the original was lying with the customs in Mumbai over non-payment of duties.

After this ICC issued a statement read as follows –
"Contrary to some erroneous and mischievous media reports, the ICC can confirm that the trophy presented to India at Wankhede Stadium on Saturday was the original ICC Cricket World Cup 2011 trophy and the one that was always intended to be presented to the winner of the event

ICC governing body said that "The trophy seized by Mumbai customs is the promotional, perpetual trophy which remains in the keeping of ICC at its headquarters in Dubai.

It carries the generic ICC corporate logo rather than the logo specific to the 2011 event. That trophy will be reclaimed on Monday and will travel back to Dubai with ICC staff as was always intended

Customs department said that Cup was with them for non-payment of duty of 35 per cent of the original value.

"We will release it after payment of 35 per cent customs duty after its valuation," they told PTI.

ICC was supposed to pay Rs.22 Lakh customs duty for the trophy but they did not pay it and trophy was in the possession of the customs department.

In this world cup ICC got tax exemption of Rs.45 crore, made the profits of more than Rs.600 Crore.

Still ICC did not pay customs duty and saved money.

In Cricket world cup do you think there is national Pride?

Sorry there is no national pride in cricket world cup, law is a law and law must be followed.

Cricket is not our national game?

Social duty and BCCI know any information?

Social duty and ICC know any information?

People like Anna Hajare and Kiran Bedi , Kargil War Heroes, Mumbai war Heroes are our national pride not a cricket trophy and Indian cricket team.
