Times are tough. Pandemic has taken a toll on all the sporting activities throughout the globe. Fans are wondering if the stands will be the same. Players are wondering if the game would be the same. There is nothing but uncertainties. Peace and mental calmness are the only traits to soothe oneself.
The current generation rejoices rap. They go with the beats and dive into the lines. Rap soothes the soul. Considering this in mind, Female Cricket decided to pen down a tribute song thanking the frontline heroes like doctors, nurses, support staff, police, government, and private officials and everyone involved in fighting this pandemic. The idea was simple, to create awareness about the ongoing situation and remind everyone to stay at home and maintain social distancing.
Gully Boy drove this trend to a newer level with a desi touch. A new entrant to this tally is a rap song by Team Female Cricket. Vishal Yadav got into the shoes of Ranveer Singh and wrote lyrics for the same. The song was launched on Female Cricket’s YouTube channel and has received love from all sides.
The video starts with clips from the ground and the good old days. The campaign is called “Apna Cricket Aayega”. It captures the emotion of all the fans and lovers throughout the globe. Giving her voice is the cricketing ace Reema Malhotra, former India player and now a commentator. She has been joyful throughout the song. The lyrics are simple but are powerful.
It gives the message clearly and captures the plight of fans eagerly waiting for live-action. In unprecedented times like these, we need discipline and dedication. Tough times call for tougher measures and a sporting fraternity can be the best lot. The presence of role models and stars gets the message directly to the masses and cricketers like Reema Malhotra, Veda Krishnamurthy, Vanitha VR, Sushma Verma and all the women have done the same. Everyone is missing Cricket, but everyone needs to come out stronger.
We need to keep ourselves and our country safe for the better tomorrow. The song with catchy lines gives hope. Hope to a billion fans and cricketers that better days are coming. It rightly highlights our war against the virus and what better could have worked for fans. They got the message in the way they get it. A defense on the back-foot and a pull from Hitman to the virus. Pandemic has brought us closer and song captures the same in some magnificent minutes. In all, 24 Female Cricketers came together to contribute and make this awareness song complete. We would like to thank Mona Meshram, Sneh Rana, Sushma Verma, Saloni Allot, Nuzhat Parween, Reema Malhotra, Tarannum Pathan, Manali Dakshini, Babita Negi, Sukanya Parida, Jenita Fernandes, Saloni Dangore, Shivali Shinde, Tarannum Pathan, Disha Kasat, Anjali Sarvani, Asha Joy, Yashi Pandey, Radha Yadav, Sushree Dibyadarshini, Radha Yadav, Veda Krishnamurthy, Rakshita Pilankar and Vanitha VR.
With the amount of love that the team of female cricket received, the song might not get a Grammy but will surely be something to bring smiles on faces for a lifetime. Check the song and do share your love with us through the like and subscribe button.
