With just ICC T20 World Cup scheduled to be commencing in less than a month, the organizers have officially released the anthem for the marquee event on Thursday. Titled Live the Game, the theme song is composed by India’s renowned music composer Amit Trivedi and features avatars of Indian captain Virat Kohli, Afghanistan’s Rashid Kham, Windies skipper, Kieron Pollard, and Australia’s hard-hitting batsman, Glenn Maxwell.
The film showcased young fans transported to the exciting world of T20Is, getting to play with their favorite players, all to a peppy soundtrack composed by Amit Trivedi that had the players grooving through the week. The avatar animation featured a brand-new broadcast technology that blends both 3D and 2D effects – as a lot of matte painters, animators, lighters, and compositors seem to have worked hard on it.
The theme song has released exactly one month before the beginning of the Super 12 matches. It is one of the songs which will be enjoyed by everyone and is groovy. Here is the video shared by the ICC:
