Ahead of the India vs Pakistan high-voltage match at the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019, tennis star Sania Mirza has slammed the jingoistic advertisements running on the national televisions and social media platforms across both the sides of the border. In a tweet, Sania Mirza called the advertisements cringeworthy and advised the people to not hype up the market for match anymore especially with rubbish stuff. She said, India vs Pakistan already has the attention of millions of cricket lovers. It’s only a game of cricket and nothing else.
A few days ago, leading channels had released the advertisements for the match on father’s day. Saying it indirectly, Indian advertisement stated India as the father of Pakistan. While Pakistan in reply released an ad featuring a lookalike of Indian Air Force Wing Commander Abhinandan Varthaman to mock India. The move did not go well with tweeple as they called these ads cheap and shameful act.
Cringeworthy ads on both sides of the border 🤮 seriously guys, you don’t need to ‘hype up’ or market the match anymore specially with rubbish! it has ENOUGH attention already!It’s only cricket for God sake, and if you think it’s anymore than that then get a grip or get a life !!

India and Pakistan are 2 best cricketing nations and arch rivals. Their match is known as one of the most interesting battles in the world of cricket where sentiments of billions of people are attached.
At the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019, Team India has never given a chance to celebrate to Pakistan. Both the teams have met 7 times in the World Championship and India triumph all 7 times.
During the 1992 ICC Cricket World Cup, when Pakistan had lifted the trophy under captainship of Imran Khan, at that time also India had beaten Pakistan by a fine margin.
