IPL winners' trophy unveiled

The trophy is entirely made of gold with diamonds embellished on it.

Mumbai: The Indian Premier League’s (IPL) commissioner and chairman Lalit Modi, chief designer Mona Mehta and ORRA CEO Vijay Jain on Monday unveiled the winners' trophy for the ongoing Twenty20 tournament here.

"The prestigious trophy created in gold, diamonds and precious stones by ORRA will be presented to the winning team on June 1 at Mumbai and they have created some exquisite and stunning pieces of jewellery and works of art, that have adorned Hollywood and Bollywood beauties and royalties alike," Modi told reporters here.

Refusing to disclose the value of the trophy, Modi said, the winning team, who would be richer by $12,00,000, would get to keep the replica of the trophy as the original one was a rotating trophy.

"With ORRA’s big reputation, it was an obvious choice for us to commission ORRA for creating a truly distinct and exquisite work of art, one befitting the stature and success of the IPL.

"Needless to say that the trophy that has been unveiled now, will definitely take pride of place in the trophy showcase of one of our franchises after the grand final on June 1," he said.
