Now, rumors are abuzz that pop sensation Dua Lipa will be performing at the closing ceremony. This was initially sparked after the AskDua session on November 15th, an interaction with the semi-finalists of the World Cup. Dua Lipa fielded questions from three cricketers – Shubman Gill, KL Rahul, Kane Williamson – about the game, her performances and her personal interests.
However, what intrigued fans the most was when, during the virtual session, Gill drew attention for asking her what songs she would (potentially) perform at the opening and closing ceremonies of the Cricket World Cup. Here’s what the singer had to say:
Star Sports posted the video on Twitter with the caption, “The Pitch is perfect”, which provoked even more excitement from viewers.
The three-time Grammy award winning singer made her debut performance in India way back in November 19. If she performs at the World Cup on Sunday, it will mark her long-anticipated return after four years.
Whie the exact plans of the BCCI for the Closing Ceremony aren’t confirmed yet, it has been reported that the Indian Air Force will reportedly perform an air show during the final, making it a perfect blend of glamour and sportsmanship.
