India and Pakistan cricket teams are fighting a legendary cricket war, with the 6-0 record India has over their arch-rivals Pakistan in the World Cups. And this gives rise to a promo video titled ‘Mauka Mauka’ which instantly went viral on the internet.
To make it more interesting ICC CWC 2019 official broadcasters Star Sports has incorporated the theme of International Father’s Day with the mauka mauka promo. The ad video portrays Vikas Malhotra, the actor who gained popularity due to the mauka mauka videos, playing as the Pakistani fans son whose father kept waiting for Pakistan to beat the Indian cricket team in a World Cup match.
Malhotra (who is playing the son of Pakistani fan), is seen telling the Bangladeshi fan that “one should keep trying.” He says to the Bangladesh cricket fan wearing the Bangla tigers jersey, that his father had advised him to keep trying and never give up.
That’s when the entry of rhetorical punches came in as Indian fan said, “Hey, when did I (your father) told you this?” At first, the Pakistani fan doesn’t get the jibe (the baap joke) and replied “Not you, my Abbu (father) told me” but then he stops immediately as he understands that it was a jibe by the Indian fan.
Stadiums are full, not just Indian and Pakistan but all the cricket fans love to see these two Asian giants facing each other in the cricket field. Till now India and Pakistan have faced each other a total of six times in the world cups. First time both teams were against each other in 1992, 1996, 1999, 2003, 2011 and 2015 edition.
All the six times, India was able to beat their arch nemesis Pakistan in ICC’s events. Both the teams will face each other for the seventh time on June 16.
