AHMEDABAD: A day after winning the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup, Australian captain Pat Cummins on Monday posed for photos with the trophy on a Sabarmati river cruise vessel housing a restaurant in Ahmedabad. Australia defeated hosts India by 6 wickets on Sunday in the final match at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Motera in Ahmedabad to lift the ODI World Cup for the sixth time . Cummins, along with International Cricket Council (ICC) officials, reached the iconic Sabarmati Riverfront in the morning and boarded a floating restaurant named ‘Akshar River Cruise’ in the river for a photoshoot with the trophy. “It is a matter of great pride for all of us that the ICC selected the Sabarmati Riverfront, an iconic place, for its official photoshoot. Cummins gave various poses with the trophy on the upper deck of the cruise. He was also served a variety of food items,” said Suhag Modi, director of Akshar Travels Pvt Ltd. In few photos clicked by the ICC’s official photographer, Cummins could be seen standing with the World Cup trophy on the deck with the iconic Atal Bridge in the background.
