Bollywood musicians trio Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy are the composers of 2011 Cricket World Cup Song (De Ghuma Ke). Creating an official theme song for international sporting events is customary these days, so the entire cricket world was eagerly awaiting the unveiling of official theme song for Cricket World Cup 2011.
Most cricket fans expected the cricket world cup theme song this time would be an English one, as English is the language commonly used in all cricket playing nations. However, when the official cricket world cup theme song (De Ghuma Ke ) was released on December 31st 2010, we all got to know it’s written in local sub-continental languages Hindi, Bengali and Sinhalese.

"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," the ICC said in a statement.
