Cricket fans were excited to hear the official theme for the ICC World Cup 2023, but they are not happy with the song.
The song “Dil Jashn Bole” was released by ICC on Wednesday (today). It features the well-known Bollywood actor Ranveer Singh and was written by the well-known Indian music director Pritam Chakraborty.
“Dil Jaane Bole! #CWC23. Now, the official Anthem is at platform 2023. “Get on the One Day Xpress and join the greatest cricket jam ever!” said a post from the ICC’s official X account, which used to be called Twitter.
DIL JASHN BOLE! #CWC23

Music – Pritam
Lyrics – Shloke Lal, Saaveri Verma

As teams from all over the world fight for the prized ICC Cricket World Cup trophy, the release of the song is expected to bring cricket fans together across countries and stoke their love for the sport.
Both Indian and Pakistani cricket fans started making jokes when they didn’t like the official song. They also said it was like the World Cup song “De Ghumake” from 2011.
Let’s look at what they said about it:
Very nice song. But shouldn't have sung

Couldn’t even compose one decent anthem.🤦🏻♀️

Awesome song! Masterpieces of this magnitude shouldn't be made available to the general public, as it diminishes their exclusivity and sanctity. Please consider keeping it exclusively for use in ICC and BCCI offices, and refrain from releasing it to the general public.
