Royal Mail have revealed the designs of stamps to celebrate the England Men’s and Women’s ICC Cricket World Cup winning teams.
Royal Mail have revealed images of the Special Stamps issued to celebrate England Men’s 2019 and Women’s 2017 ICC Cricket World Cup wins.
The eight Special Stamps will be presented in two Miniature Sheets.
The men’s Miniature Sheet comprises four stamps; each capturing a moment of celebration following England’s thrilling World Cup Final victory against New Zealand at Lord’s Cricket Ground.
The England women’s Miniature Sheet also comprises four stamps - each image depicting the rapturous celebrations following their victorious World Cup Final against India at Lord’s Cricket Ground in 2017.
This is the first time England’s Men’s and Women’s cricket teams have held both the ICC Cricket World Cup trophies simultaneously.
Royal Mail has also decorated fifteen special edition postboxes at each venue used in the tournament to mark the historic achievement of both England teams. The first postbox painted was outside Lord’s Cricket Ground where both sold-out finals were held.
There will also be a special postbox in locations of importance to the captains of both ICC Cricket World Cup winning teams, England Men’s captain Eoin Morgan and the captain of the 2017 Women’s team Heather Knight OBE, as a tribute to leading their teams to victory.
