IPL winner's trophy unveiled
The diamond-studded Indian Premier League winner's trophy, encrusted with other precious gems like rubies and yellow and blue sapphires, was unveiled here today by IPL Chairman and Commissioner Lalit Modi on Monday.
"It's a handcrafted and very expensive rotating trophy, the value of which, I will not reveal. It has been crafted by ORRA's design team," said Modi at the trophy unveiling function.
"The winning team will get a replica of this trophy," he explained.
The trophy, which has a player in gold leafing, holding a bat adjacent to a map of the country with the names of the teams engraved in it and symbolised by eight rubies, was crafted by 14 artisans, said chief designer Mona Mehta.
