The tournament will kick off on October 17 in Oman and the United Arab Emirates (UAE), and the final will be played in Dubai on November 14.

The ICC released the official anthem of the upcoming T20 World Cup on Thursday along with a campaign film featuring the "avatars" of Indian batting master Virat Kohli and West Indies captain Kieron Pollard.

Composed by Bollywood music director Amit Trivedi, an animated film features young fans from around the world involved in T20I cricket and includes some of the sport's biggest superstars.

India's captain Kohli leads the group of players who come to life as "avatars" in the animation, interacting with each other at all times.

Kohli is joined by his teammate Captain Pollard from the reigning champions, the West Indies, as well as Australian off-roader Glenn Maxwell and Rashid Khan from Afghanistan.

Released in collaboration with Star Sports, ICC's global broadcast partner, the film opens worldwide Thursday on ICC, BCCI and Star Sports social media.

Animation features a completely new streaming technology that combines 3D and 2D effects to create the movie.

A production team of more than 40 people, including designers, modelers, matte painters, animators, lighters, and composers, worked around the clock to produce the final version.

A total of 16 countries, with the biggest names and the best teams in the sport, will compete in the sport's biggest event since the COVID-19 pandemic.

"There is something magical and special about putting on the West Indies jersey and walking onto the field," said Pollard.

“This next World Cup will give us more special moments. We know that our fans will be fully engaged, watching and supporting and we want to give them a lot to cheer on, ”he added.

The opening match of the tournament will take place on October 17 when Oman takes on men's T20 World Cup debutants Papua New Guinea at the Oman Cricket Academy in Muscat.

Claire Furlong, ICC Marketing and Communications General Manager, said: "Cricket has more than 1 billion fans around the world, and we wanted to put our young fans at the heart of the action alongside their heroes and allow them to experience the game.".
