The official song of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2011 is "De Ghumaa Ke", composed by the musical trio of Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy (Shankar Mahadevan, Ehsaan Noorani and Loy Mendonsa). It has been sung by Shankar Mahadevan and Divya Kumar.
"De Ghumaa Ke" is a passionate expression that creatively captures the fierce sense of competition and the desire to win. It literally means Hit It Hard. This local cricket euphemism is every fan's wish and every cricketer's intention. It encapsulates all that it takes to win a match.
Released worldwide on 31 December 2010, the song has three different versions in Hindi, Bangla and Sinhalese, as Bangladesh, India and Sri Lanka are the co-hosts of the event.
