The ICC World Twenty20 India 2016 trophy embarked on a global journey from Mumbai, India, last week, arriving in Scotland on Sunday, 13 December. 

As part of the Nissan Trophy Tour, the trophy will visit various countries taking part in the tournament which will be staged in India from 8 March to 3 April 2016.  

Scotland cricketers Ally Evans (left) and George Munsey (right) with Malcolm Cannon, CEO Cricket Scotland, with the ICC World Twenty20 India 2016 Trophy visited the The Kelpies in Falkirk for the first trip of the tour.

The 30-metre high horse-head sculptures built to reflect mythological beasts in Scottish folklore that possess strength and endurance. Santa was also on show to pose for a quick photo with the trophy. 

On Monday it was then whisked up the chairlift at Glencoe Ski Centre for a picture in the snow with captain Preston Mommsen, Richie Berrington, Gavin Main and Craig Wright.

 

The final stop before heading to Ireland for the next leg of the journey was to the iconic Glen Etive, which has been the scene for filming the James Bond film, Skyfall. 

Although there was no sign of 007, the players were given a visit from a few of the local deer who came to inspect the trophy a little closer. 

Scotland will play their ICC World Twenty20 India 2016 group matches at the iconic Vidarbha stadium in Nagpur, beginning with Afghanistan on the evening of March 8 before going on to meet Zimbabwe and Hong Kong.

Cricket Scotland would like to thank the Helix in Falkirk and Glencoe Mountain for their support.
