As the 2021 edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) is coming to an end the countdown has begun for the much-anticipated clash between the arch-rivals India and Pakistan, who will be locking horns after a gap of two years, since the 2019 Cricket World Cup.
Both teams will begin their respective campaigns in the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup against each other on Sunday, October 24 and ahead of the clash, the official broadcaster Star Sports have brought back the iconic ‘Mauka Mauka’ ad campaign, which was a rage during the 2015 ICC Cricket World Cup.
The first promo in the campaign features the same actor Vishal Malhotra, who has become an overnight sensation because of the campaign six years ago. It features him as a Pakistan Cricket fan, who enters an electronic store to purchase a TV set for the upcoming T20 World Cup.
The electronics store manager, who is an Indian reminds him of the head-to-head record of the two sides in the T20 World Cup where India have beaten them five times – twice in the inaugural World T20 in 2007 and once each in 2012, 2014 and 2016 tournaments.
