Mumbai: The Board of control for Cricket in India (BCCI) secretary Niranjan Shah on Tuesday said the Board was yet to receive the NatWest Trophy, which the Indians won beating England in the triangular One-day series in July, and asserted "there is no question of losing the trophy".Shah dismissed a report in a section of the press about the mystery of the 'missing' NatWest Trophy saying, We are waiting for the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) to despatch the trophy. "Sometimes the trophies are too big for the boys to carry them home and the winning side asks the host nation to send them by courier service. It also consumes lot of time for the trophy to be packed properly as nobody will accept a damaged trophy and this could be one of the reasons for the delay,"Shah said."We are in touch with England Board and in fact a couple of days ago I wrote to them to despatch the trophy as early as possible. We are expecting the trophy anytime and I don't think it is an issue in the first place," he said. PTI
