Pakistan cricket fans are not happy with the ICC World Cup 2023 anthem over the size of the nation's flag shown in the song.
The International Cricket Council (ICC) released the official CWC23 anthem 'Dil Jashn Bole' featuring Ranveer Singh and Dhanashree Verma on Wednesday.
The song has been composed by Pritam, who takes fans on the One Day Express on a journey through the biggest Cricket World Cup ever.
A blend of traditional Indian instruments with an international flavour thrown in, the tune aims to the capture the emotions of the cricket community across the world, with a matching music video that aims to unite nations and fans across cultures.
World Cup anthem receives negative reviews
But the song hasn't received a positive response from the cricketing fraternity with Pakistan fans even complaining about the small size of the flag shown in the music video.
A Pakistan fan is seen holding a tiny flag while the others are holding massive ones in the video.
"Yeh Pakistan ka flag asal mein itna chota kyun rakha hay World Cup anthem mein? Couldn't they find a bigger flag ya flag of the size of other countries? Har dafa koi na koi cheez kardete hain jis se dil kharab hota hay, pata nai kya jata hay equality mein," popular Pak fan Farid Khan tweeted.
"Cheap stunts from BCCI. Don’t worry. In Sha Allah, the Pakistan flag will Fly High in India on 19th November," another fan posted on X.
'Dil Jashn Bole’ is available on streaming platforms Spotify, Apple Music, Gaana, Hungama, Resso, Wynk, Amazon Facebook, Instagram and YouTube. Fans can soon enjoy listening to the Anthem on radio stations Big FM and Red FM.
