T20 World Cup 2021: Team India skipper Virat Kohli, West Indies captain Kieron Pollard, Afghanistan all-rounder Rashid Khan, and Australian all-rounder Glenn Maxwell are among the ‘avatars’ included in the hymn.
On Thursday afternoon, the International Cricket Council (ICC) unveiled the official anthem for the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2021. The anthem, named “Live the Game,” was written by Amit Trivedi, a well-known Indian music director. Team India skipper Virat Kohli, West Indies captain Kieron Pollard, Afghanistan all-rounder Rashid Khan, and Australian all-rounder Glenn Maxwell all have ‘avatars’ in the animated short.
The official song of the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup, for example, uses cutting-edge broadcast technology that combines 3D and 2D elements. Over 40 people contributed to the creation of the anthem, including designers, modellers, matte painters, animators, lighters, and compositors.
Here’s the official anthem:
🎵 Let the world know,
