2011 Cricket World Cup Mascot

The much awaited mega sports event is finally knocking. Scheduled to begin from February 19 the 2011 cricket world cup is creating waves in all the three countries that are scheduled to host the event. The countries playing host to the mega event are India, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh. The agenda of the tenth world cup includes a total of 49 matches which have been distributed among the three hosting nations.

Since logos and mascots have become an integral part of such events the mascot for the 2011 world cup is an elephant. The mascot is called Stumpy who is supposed to be a ten year old lively and cheerful elephant.

The name of the elephant was decided upon by a lucky draw held by the official cricket board and recently revealed in an event in Colombo in Sri Lanka.

The entire idea behind creating a mascot is to portray in the form of a graphic the feelings and emotions that the game of cricket creates in its fans.

The idea of a mascot also emphasizes the enthusiasm and zest that both young and the old have for the cricket world cup in the subcontinent. Stumpy is colorful, attractive and bold so that he is instantly recognized as the face of the 2011 cricket world cup.

Stumpy is young and energetic and at the same time possesses immense love for cricket. He nurtures a desire to become a big cricketer someday but since he is small he knows he is bound to make mistakes. He looks up to certain cricketing giants and hopes that he can be like them one day.

These cricketers inspire him and tell him to use his elephant strength to reach his goals step by step. But he is a wise elephant and knows that there is one thing that lies above all else and that is the love for cricket.
