The ‘Mauka Mauka’ advertisement has become a regular feature of the India vs Pakistan matches at ICC World Cup events. The first version of the ad came when India and Pakistan clashed during ICC World Cup 2015. Since then, several ads have been released by the broadcasters for the blockbuster Indo-Pak matches in mega ICC events.
While the first advertisement for the India-Pakistan clash in 2021 T20 World Cup was launched on 13th October, another commercial was launched on 21st October, where the Pakistani fan is seen exchanging old crackers to buy new ones for the match on 24th October. Ahead of the monumental clash, the hype among the fans is already high and it has taken no time for the latest ad to go viral on social media.
In the new ad, the Pakistani fan goes to an Indian shopkeeper to exchange his old fire-crackers for new ones. The shopkeeper points out that Pakistani fan’s old fire-crackers are really very old. The shopkeeper even goes on to say that rockets will fly like India skipper Virat Kohli’s sixes at this year’s WC. Meanwhile, the Pakistani fan warns not to forget Babar and Shaheen while he goes for a selfie with the excited shopkeeper.

Notably, Pakistan are yet to beat arch-rivals India in the World Cup, in both 20-over and the ODI format. Pakistan and India last met each other in the 2019 World Cup in Manchester on 16 June, where India won by 89 runs. The result maintained India’s unbeaten World Cup record against Pakistan. India and Pakistan are placed in Pool B in the 2021 T20 WC, along with New Zealand, Afghanistan and two other teams from the qualifiers.
