Everyone’s down with cricket fever right now and why wouldn’t they be? The much-awaited cricket season is well underway and India has some thrilling matches lined up, after the victory in the first match against South Africa.
And, do you know what’s multiplying the fans’ excitement amidst all the action? It’s the power-packed anthem from PUMA called “Chakravyuh Mein SockThem!”
ICYMI, last December, skipper Virat Kohli celebrated his century against Australia, in a match marked by sledging, by pointing at his bat and then moving his gloved hand in a blabber gesture. In its essence, it is an act of silencing critics by letting the game do the talking and dominating with the on-field performance.
PUMA has adopted this Virat-way and given fans a platform to cheer for Virat and team. Just roll up your sleeves, pull up your socks, and #SockThem!
And since then, the entire country is rapping with DIVINE’s music and recreating Kings United’s choreography. The big mantra has everyone hooked and social media has been flooded with thousands of videos of die-hard fans putting their signature twist on the hook step and supporting Virat and his boys with what is definitely the most unique cheer!
We’ve saved the best for last guys! You’ve got to see how Virender Sehwag has embraced the new cricket anthem and is supporting the team in a way that ONLY HE can.
