Cricket enthusiasts around the world are eagerly awaiting one of the most anticipated clashes in the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup 2023 – the face-off between arch-rivals India and Pakistan. Scheduled to be held at the iconic Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad on October 14, this match promises to be a spectacle of epic proportions.
Rohit Sharma’s Team India and Babar Azam’s Pakistan recently crossed swords twice during the Asia Cup 2023. However, the outcomes of those encounters couldn’t have been more different. In one match, rain intervened, washing away the hopes of fans from both sides. In the second clash, India unleashed a cricketing storm, hammering Pakistan by a staggering 228 runs in Colombo during the Super 4 stage. These performances reestablished India’s dominance over their arch-rivals.
The Return of ‘Mauka Mauka’
As the excitement reaches fever pitch, the official broadcasters of the World Cup, Star Sports, have decided to revive the famous ‘Mauka Mauka’ TV ad campaign. This campaign first burst onto the scene ahead of India’s 2015 ICC ODI World Cup match against Pakistan. Originally intended as a one-off ad, it became an instant hit and spawned a series of ads for subsequent India vs Pakistan clashes in ICC tournaments.

The character of the Pakistani supporter, the centerpiece of the ‘Mauka Mauka’ campaign, has been portrayed by Vishal Malhotra since its inception. The catchy jingle accompanying the ad was brought to life by Chandigarh-based singer Alamgir Khan. This iconic campaign, with its blend of humor and rivalry, has become a tradition in the lead-up to these high-stakes matches, creating an electric atmosphere among fans.

In a recent behind-the-scenes video that went viral on social media, Team India all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja was spotted shooting with Vishal Malhotra, donning a Pakistan team jersey. These promotional efforts only add to the excitement and anticipation surrounding the India vs Pakistan clash.
