"Commemorating the multicultural milieu, the anthem is an echo of the emerging passion Omanis hold for the sport and the pride they feel at cementing their position in the cricketing world. It reflects the joyful welcome of a nation that is poised and ready to make their mark by hosting an event that unites countries and transcends beliefs, borders and boundaries," stated a release by Oman Cricket regarding the anthem.
Pankaj Khimji, Chairman of Oman Cricket said, "With the entire Cricket-frenzy world watching, the ICC Men's T20 World Cup 2021 is the ideal moment to unveil a spanking new anthem. #HayyaCricket isn't just any other anthem; it bridges social, cultural, and geographical divides - bringing together the multicultural community in the country for the love of Cricket. We unite to chant #HayyaCricket for the biggest event happening in the history of Oman."
Oman registered its first appearance in the T20 World Cup 2016 in the first round in India. Oman came into the limelight in just their second game of the event as they clinched a fine two wicket victory over Ireland in Dharamsala chasing down the target of 155.
In the 2021 edition, Oman are placed in Group B of Round 1 with Bangladesh, Scotland and Papua New Guinea. They will start their campaign against Papua New Guinea on October 17.
