David Beckham, the UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador, recently made a high-profile appearance at the ICC World Cup 2023 semi-final match between India and New Zealand at Mumbai’s Wankhede Stadium. He engaged with players from both teams and mingled with cricket legends and Bollywood actors. Prior to the match, Beckham interacted with Virat Kohli and presented the World Cup trophy to the crowd alongside Sachin Tendulkar. His visit aims to raise awareness about education for girls and women’s empowerment.
India’s victory over New Zealand and Virat Kohli’s record-breaking 50th ODI hundred left a lasting impression on Beckham. He also attended a party hosted in his honor by Bollywood actress Sonam Kapoor and her husband Anand Ahuja. The next day, he met with Rohit Sharma, who gave him a Team India jersey. In return, Beckham gifted Rohit his autographed Real Madrid shirt, and they exchanged memorable photographs while wearing their new attire.
