People still remember the celebrations three years ago, when the entire city came out to the streets chanting with merriment in glory of the green team and their achievement. The World Cup Imran Khan brought to Pakistan was no longer the only one; Younis Khan led the green team to a magnanimous victory and hence to win another World Cup.
Cricket, the sport of the country – where the national team is highly looked up to, and the national team members are treated as super heroes. Regardless of the ups and downs during World Cup’s, T20’s, test matches and other tournaments, the country has always supported the team and the sport.
Keeping in mind the current situation of the economy, the energy crisis, and other problems for the earning man/woman, all is forgotten, whenever a cricket tournament is about to begin. Where everyone is busy looking for the Pakistani flag amongst all the teams registered. Especially now, with the T20 World Cup right around the corner, everyone is up and busy counting the days, getting ready with their face paint, their jerseys and of course a place to watch the matches together with their friends/family.
On September 12th, the band returned from Colombo, Sri Lanka after completing the video shoot for the song “Dilwalo Khelo Tum” – the official T20 World Cup 2012 song for PEPSI Pakistan. Noori in collaboration with Walter Advertising have co-produced the music for this video.
In the words of the band:
By Ahmad Uzair
Pepsi Pakistan has always been closely associated with both cricket and music of our country, at times uniting both of them together. This time, as we all know the t20 Cricket World Cup is just around the corner so Pepsi have successfully managed to rope in pop music veterans ‘Noori’ to sing their official song for the event.
