ICC Cricket World Cup Mascot
Like the FIFA World Cup, the ICC Cricket World Cup also has a mascot.
Stumpy is the official mascot for the 2011 Cricket World Cup. He was unveiled at a function in Colombo, Sri Lanka, on Friday, 2 April 2010.
He is a ten year old elephant who is enthusiastic and is determined. Cricket-followers based all over the world were able to participate in a contest to name the mascot.
His personality is encapsulated in his form - he's young and enthusiastic, and bursting at the seams with his love for cricket and his/its heroes! When he's fully grown he hopes to be a giant (in both senses) like the masters of the sport he loves so much. Being young he knows that he can't get it all right the first time or even the tenth, but the cricketers he looks up to have taught him to use his elephant strength and step-by-step determination to reach his goals, and eventually he will be the best.
Sport is best used as symbol and symbolism used in corporate is an idea way to boost productivity and team spirit. So get your staff to wear the Protea Friday Shirt.
