New Delhi [India], Mar 24 (ANI): Just a few hours before their opening game in the 12th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) the Delhi Capitals on Sunday launched their official anthem for the upcoming Indian Premier League (IPL).

The anthem titled 'Roar Machaa' has been composed and sung by famous Bollywood music composer and singer Amit Trivedi.

"It has been an absolute honour and great fun working on this year's anthem for the Delhi Capitals - Roar Machaa. Delhi as a city has tremendous energy, and you can almost never stop a Dilliwala from shaking a leg if the music's peppy and catchy," Trivedi said during the launch of the anthem.

"We want the city and it's people to experience the quintessential Dilli vibe through this song. That is why we have incorporated words like 'scene' and 'swagger', and phrases like 'lagi padhi hai lanka' that are typically Delhi. And the stress on the word 'roar', a natural continuation from the team's magnificent tiger logo, essentially captures a quality that Delhiites possesses - fierceness," he added.

The video of the anthem features most of the iconic locations of the capital city, which plays host to the Delhi Capitals fans and players. The anthem showcases the vibe of the national capital Delhi.

The music composer said that he expects the Delhi crowd to come out in big numbers to support their team throughout this year's edition of the IPL.

"Dilliwaalo, I sincerely hope you are all going to come out there in large numbers, machaao a lot of shor and roar, and cheer on this amazing team throughout the IPL! Oh, Dilli re, tu Roar Machaa!," Trivedi said.

Delhi Capitals play their match first in the IPL today as they take on Mumbai Indians at Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai at 8 PM. (ANI)
