Longest national anthems amongst cricketing nations
With an official time of 52 seconds, India has one of the shortest anthems amongst all cricketing nations. The funny part is, that in a country where Hindi rules the roost in terms of the most spoken language, the anthem is composed in Bengali, albeit Sanskritised. But, each and every time you hear it, oh boy, don’t you have goose - bumps all over!
Remember India vs. Pakistan at Mohali, 2011? Especially that moment when the camera freezes on Sachin’s face; that feeling of seeing him singing with that determined look on his face, along with 55,000 Indians at the ground - unbeatable!
