Cricket fans rush to see their Heroes, magnificent T20 World Cup Trophy


Ardent cricket fans grabbed their chance to join in the excitement as they grabbed a once in a lifetime chance to see the T20 World Cup Trophy and meet their favourite Sri Lankan cricketer. As a ‘bonus’ several others even won free tickets to the world cup matches as well.

This was all made possible largely due to the efforts of the dynamic team of HERO-Abans. HERO, a main sponsor of the ICC T20 World Cup 2012, recently launched their extensive range of HERO Bikes in Sri Lanka, through Abans - the authorised reseller, offering the extensive range of HERO bikes to bike lovers through a vast network of Showrooms and Dealers Islandwide.

The magnificent ICC T20 World Cup Trophy (which was given by the ICC to HERO) was presented to Abans representatives by HERO Officials on 8th September at Kandy City Centre.

The young and the old were all equally restless and excited as they all came pouring into their nearest trophy display centre from the 8th - 11th September, with their friends and family to get a glimpse of their favourite cricketer, grab his autograph, take a picture with him and of course, with the T20 World Cup trophy.

Several thousands more flocked in en-route as the trophy traveled to selected areas in the country making short stopovers on 10th September @ Ingiriya / Horana / Kesbewa / Piliyandala / Boralesgamuwa, on 11th September @ Negombo / Katunayake / Ja Ela / Kandana / Wattala, on 13th September @ Homagama / Maharagama / Nugegoda / Malabe / Kaduwela / Athurugiriya / Thalawathugoda / Rajagiriya / Borella, on 15th September @ Moratuwa / Kalutara / Aluthgama / Ambalangoda / Galle / Matara, on 16th September @ Tangalle / Ambalantota / Tissamaharama / Hambantota and on 17th September @ Embilipitiya / Godakawela / Kahawatta / Pelmadulla / Ratnapura.

These en-route stops allowed cricket fans who missed the action at the trophy display centres, to take pictures of the trophy, which they would definitely treasure for years to come. The Trophy display centres each held raffle draw, which saw numerous people win tickets to exciting world cup matches. The Chief Guest to each trophy display centre were; Jeewan Mendis (Kandy City Centre - 8th September), Lasith Malinga (HERO-Abans Signature Showroom, Peliyagoda – 9th September), Mahela Jayawadena (HERO-Abans Signature Showroom, Peliyagoda – 10th September) and Angelo Mathews (HERO-Abans Signature Showroom, Kollupitiya – 11th September).
