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.
