Sporting anthems have been the focal point of Pakistan cricket ahead of every major ICC tournament. Usually released a few days prior to the commencement of a mega-event such as the World Cup, these lively tunes bind the nation and provide a boost to the confidence of the players.
This trend has persisted before the start of the 2019 ICC World Cup as well, with iconic Sufi rock band Junoon thrilling everyone with an energetic song. Junoon’s melodious anthem has caught the attention of flamboyant all-rounder Shahid Afridi, who tweeted his feelings regarding the upbeat track.
Speaking in favor of the message of the song, Afridi stated that this captures the spirit of the Pakistani populace and their deep association with cricket. He thus advocated unity among his countrymen, a theme prevalent in Junoon’s song.
