The 2019 Cricket World Cup song is now available to the world as the countdown to the game's showpiece event enters the final two weeks.

The International Cricket Council on Friday released Stand By, which is the product of a collaboration between emerging artist Loryn and Rudimental, one of the United Kingdom’s most successful acts. The World Cup is being hosted by England and Wales this year from May 30-July 14.

The ICC has said the theme of Stand By, which will be played at every cricket ground during matches as well as promotional events across the country, is essentially a celebration of the UK's cultural diversity.

The World Cup returns to the British Isles after 20 years.
