About the Mace

The Mace is based on the global character of Test cricket and the contending nations.

Meanwhile, it was design by English luxury company Thomas Lyte.

The cricket ball is the Mace’s focus point since it is at the heart of the game, whether it is bowled, hit, or fielded.

The world encircles the ball, indicating Test cricket’s global reach, and the silver gilt cricket ball is visible through the oceans of the map, according to the ICC.

The countries of the world are supported on the longitude lines seen on a globe.

Allowing for a wonderful interplay of light on the various surfaces, particularly as the mace moves and catches that light.

A central belt also encircles the globe, bearing the symbols of all 12 competing Test nations. With room to add more in the future.

The mace’s shaft is design as a stump, with a silver gilded laurel band spiralling up the shaft. A tribute to the all-important wicket.
