On Sunday, when the ICC Men’s T20 Trophy Tour, driven by Nissan, arrived at the renowned Barossa Valley in South Australia, former Australian cricket captain Michael Clarke was joined at Jacob’s Creek by cricket enthusiasts, locals, and wine aficionados.
In addition to hosting the T20 World Cup trophy at its cellar door, Jacob’s Creek, a partner of the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup, which begins on October 16th, also presented a pop-up cricket exhibit there that will occupy the space until the T20 finals in November.
The cricket project, which was inspired by vines, is a lively, family-friendly pitch that makes use of ancient vines and Jacob’s Creek barrels. Up to the end of November, the exhibit will be accessible to all guests.

The Trophy made its way to South Australia as part of a world tour that included stops at the Adelaide Oval, Rundle Mall, and the Royal Adelaide Show, in addition to cities in all eight Australian State Territories and 12 other nations. The Great Barrier Reef, Uluru, and Rottnest Island are just a few of the famous Australian locations that The Trophy has previously visited.
All Super 12 matches in Adelaide offer $5 children’s tickets, making the event affordable for families. Tickets for adults are currently available at t20worldcup.com and start at $20 for a few matchups.
On November 2, the first game of the T20 World Cup in Adelaide pits top-ranked India against Bangladesh. On November 4, Australia, the guests, and Rashid Khan, the star of the Adelaide Strikers, will square off.
On November 10, a semi-final will also take place at Adelaide Oval under the lights.
