The 2023 World Cup will be played in India. This is the fourth time that the country will be hosting a Cricket World Cup. The subcontinent country will be the sole host for the first time. Ten venues will be in action and will host World Cup games. Now the anthem for the World Cup is out and it features Ranveer Singh and Yuzvendra Chahal's wife Dhanashree Varma.


The song also features the likes of comedian Viraj Ghelani and Be You Nick. Star Sports anchor and commentator Jatin Sapru also finds a spot in the song. In the number that looks like a Bollywood-style song, there is a train and everyone is playing cricket inside that train. The Railways is an integral part of connecting different regions in India. In the video, while playing cricket, someone breaks the window and the umpire played by the famous YouTuber Gaurav Taneja jokingly gives it out.

India last won the World Cup in 2011

In India, playing in the streets is a common phenomenon and it is called 'Gully Cricket' When kids play in the streets, they break windows because of some space constraints and then somehow try to get the ball back so that they can resume their game. Street Cricket is a huge thing in India and represents the love of the game from the fans.


The Men in Blue will want to try and break the jinx of not having won a world event for 10 years. When India last played the World Cup on home soil in 2011 they scripted history under the leadership of MS Dhoni. Ten years later the Men in Blue will want to repeat the same under Rohit Sharma's captaincy.

India will want to do well and try to please their home fans. It will be a carnival-like atmosphere in India as fans will want to catch as much of the World Cup as possible. The busy cities in India will have streets empty as fans will tune into their TV sets to catch the action live.

Let us take a look at the reactions on Twitter:
