Georgetown, Guyana: The ICC Men’s T20 World Cup Trophy 2024 made its way to Guyana. The trophy was welcomed by the First Lady Arya Ali. She hosted children from the Hope Children’s Home at the State House to get a glimpse of the trophy.

While sharing about the trophy visit to Guyana, First Lady Arya Ali took to her official Facebook account and stated “The 2024 ICC Men’s T20 World Cup trophy has made its way to Guyana and I wanted some of our children to get a glimpse of it before the West Indies are crowned champions at the end of the tournament.”

The First Lady spent a few minutes chatting with the children and captured several photos with the prized possession. Also, she prayed and hoped for the victory of the West Indies team in the much-awaited ICC Men’s T20 World Cup tournament.
