“Mello the Mascot” is assigned to strict rules of anonymity, but notwithstanding his personality profile is said to have been carefully thought out by the local office.

Project Officer for Communications with the ICC Cricket World Cup Incorporated Ms. Jennifer Gaston said the Mascot represents a Caribbean teenager, living a Caribbean lifestyle.

“ That person, that character is supposed to have the type of personality that blends into who we are, we are supposed to be youthful, we are supposed to friendly, we're supposed to be smiling we're supposed to be that party going having a nice time nice friendly people so it was decided that Mello must represent that.”
