FORMER Greenock cricket star Richie Berrington went above and beyond the call of duty when he scaled a mountain to help promote the World Twenty20 tournament.

The 28-year-old, who starred in Scotland’s World Cup campaign in Australia and New Zealand, took to Glencoe Mountain to help publicise the ICC competition, which takes place next year in India.

Despite the freezing temperatures, Richie, along with several of the Scotland cricket players, were only too happy to pose for pictures with the trophy, which is currently making a whistle-stop tour of the country.

The ICC World Twenty20 India 2016 trophy embarked on a global journey from Mumbai, India, recently and arrived in Scotland earlier this month.

As part of the Nissan Trophy Tour, the silverware will visit various countries taking part in the tournament which will be staged in India from March 8 to April 3 2016.

After a visit to the The Kelpies in Falkirk for the first trip of the tour, it was whisked up the chairlift at Glencoe Ski Centre for a picture in the snow with Richie, captain Preston Mommsen, Gavin Main and Scotland assistant coach Craig Wright.

The final stop before heading to Ireland for the next leg of the journey was to the iconic Glen Etive.

Scotland will play their ICC World Twenty20 India 2016 group matches at the iconic Vidarbha stadium in Nagpur, beginning with Afghanistan on the evening of March 8 before going on to meet Zimbabwe and Hong Kong.

Cricket Scotland would like to thank the staff of the Helix in Falkirk and Glencoe Mountain for their support.
