Clive Lloyd (West Indies, ’75, ’79): It is in lock and key and I don’t think it will be on e-bay any time.

Aravinda De Silva (Sri Lanka, ’96): Thanks to my father, it is hanging in my trophy cabinet. Otherwise I would have given it to someone else.

Michael Bevan (Australia ’99, 03: The ’99 medal is lying in the garage at home. I don’t have a room to put my memorabilia. I had got seven shirts signed by all the 2003 World Cup teams and took them home. When I landed in Australia, it was pouring heavily and had left them in the coffin. It was stolen.

Dilip Vengsarkar, India, 1983: It is at my farmhouse in Panvel as there is no place to keep it in my house in Mumbai.
