For cricket lovers not only the cricket match is enjoyable but everything associated with cricket makes it a super hit series. The commercials, tweets, social media wars (especially during India- Pakistan match). We as fans thoroughly enjoy this healthy rivalry cum competition between nations. But the story goes way beyond the plot when it is all about India Pakistan World Cup cricket. Then, it is like, as if not the cricket teams but armies have taken over the ground and it is a situation called do or die.

We take cricket seriously, but way too seriously when it is about India-Pakistan. In the wake of India Pakistan World Cup series, even commercials become an inevitable part of the series. Do you remember how Star Sports came up with a new commercial about the whole “Mauka Mauka” trolling of Pakistan? The commercial featured a Pakistani man waiting to burn firecracker to celebrate Pakistan’s victory in World Cup I 1992. This commercial created a lot of buzzes and the whole “Mauka Mauka” element reigned social media.

Well, we recently witnessed how the Pakistani Cricket team below their “Mauka” even this time during India-Pakistan match.

And this gives way to have a look at 8 best Mauka Muka ads that we all enjoyed in the past.

This ad created a huge hustle bustle in social media and all over the world. The ad shows India Pakistan team battling a musical argument where at the end Indian team sings “Mauka Mauka” in the form of Qawali. This created a lot of noise in the whole world; it agonized Pakistani fans that they wanted a war against India on the grounds of this advertisement.

Yuvraj Singh Announces Retirement from International Cricket

We all heard it right that on 10th June 2019, Indian Cricket team’s all-rounder Yuvraj Singh announced his retirement from the Cricket world. Commonly nicknamed as Yuvi, the 37 years old former cricketer played his ODI debut in Kenya 2000 and ever since then he never looked back. The left-handed batsman bags the title of Sixer King when he shot 6 sixes back to back against England in T-20 world, 2007.

Yuvraj Singh is the son of the fast bowler and Punjabi actor Yograj Singh. In the wake of our Sixer King’s retirement,

let’s have a look at his whole career and life as a cricketer of Indian Cricket Team, in a nutshell.

As reported by Cricbuzz the 37 years old made the announcement in a press conference in Mumbai saying that his journey has been like a

“great rollercoaster ride and beautiful story but it has to come to an end. It was the right time to go.”

Well for his fans it could never be a right time just ‘go’ has the cricket world’s fans will surely miss the legendary player who conquered not just the field but also the pitch of real life when he fought with the deadly disease.

Apart from his tremendous success as the cricketer, Yuvraj Singh is known for his victory over cancer. He was diagnosed with cancer while he was playing the World Cup. The Sixer King totally ruled the field and the disease with the hope of never giving up and he never did.

He moved back to the pavilion in order to defeat the killer cancer and stepped out to the field successfully in 2012. After he experienced the deadly disease he took initiative to make the world aware of this deadly cancer and motivated the world to fight it back.

Yuvraj Singh

via: Twitter

In the press conference, Yuvraj Singh recalled his cricket career and with somewhat a heavy heart said “I would say I extremely lucky to play 400-plus games for India. I would’ve not imagined doing this when I started my career as a cricketer. Through this journey, some matches that remain in my memory are-the 2007 Test series in England, of course, the six sixes and the 2007 T20 World Cup. And then the most memorable one was the 2011 World Cup finals.

He became the heartthrob of Indian Cricket team when played as vice-captain at the ICC World Twenty20 in South Africa. He reached fastest fifty ever when he hit legendary six sexes off just 12 balls.

He further recalled some lows of his careers too saying:

“And then, probably the worst day in my career was the 2014 World T20 final against Sri Lanka where I scored 11 off 21 balls. It was so shattering that I felt my career was over.” – Yuvraj Singh

Well, we all remember that low point of Yuvraj Singh’s career where we all thought that it is over for Yuvraj. But to all of us’ pleasant surprise he made his comeback in home series against England in 2017 for the first time in Virat Kohli’s full captaincy. He made it to the tour of West Indies after the Champions Trophy in 2017.

Yuvi played is last One Day Internationals in 2017 in West Indies and after that, he just appeared in IPL (Kings 11 Punjab). Well, the team of Gudstory bids Yuvraj Singh farewell form Cricket with great pride and wish him all the very best for his life ahead.
