KK had supported Indian cricket team with special song during 1999 World Cup

KK, whose full name is Krishnakumar Kunnath, supported the Indian cricket team during the 1999 World Cup with a song titled “Josh of India”. The song captured many glorious chapters of Indian cricket, including the winning moment of the 1983 World Cup – India’s first triumph in the ICC tournament.

Some members of the Indian team from the 1999 World Cup, including then skipper Mohammad Azharuddin, all-rounder Robin Singh and off-spinner Nikhil Chopra, also featured in the video song performed by KK.

Despite massive support and a strong squad, India fared poorly at the 1999 World Cup in England. They failed to reach the semi-finals as they won only one solitary game in the Super Six round and were thus eliminated.
