Cricket is not just about winning matches, but the trophies they represent, which the players thrive to win, show the dedication of players on the pitch, with some iconic trophies like the World Cup or the ashes. Still, there were times when the trophies were very unusual, so that we can have a look at the top 10 most unusual cricket trophies and awards.

1. The 2018 Tuc Cup

This was a T-20i series between Australia and Pakistan in the UAE, led by Aaron Finch and Sarfaraz Ahmed, respectively. The trophy had a biscuit on it, as the series was sponsored by a TUC. Pakistan won the series by whitewashing Australia, with Babar Azam winning the player of the series.

2. Coca-Cola Cup 1998

This was a tri-series involving India, Australia, and New Zealand, with India winning the finals. This is the same series where the legendary Sharjah sandstorm innings by Sachin Tendulkar arrived, and with the help of Tendulkar’s 134, India beat Australia by six wickets. This trophy was not appreciated by Mohammed Azharuddin, as seen in the picture.

3. DLF Cup 2006

This was a two match ODI series between India and Pakistan, conducted in the UAE. The main motive behind this was to support the victims of the 2005 Kashmir earthquake, as the revenue from this series was donated. DLF was the main sponsor of this series, with the trophy being huge. The figures at the bottom showcased different cricketing poses, with the top showing the country flags surrounded by three stumps and a globe.

9. Sunshine Snacks
