The Cricket rivalry between India-Pakistan is well known and whenever the two arch-rivals are set for a clash, millions of cricket fans across the world wait with a bated breath between the two for the outcome of the high-decibel clash between the two sides.
The “Mauka Mauka” Ad which Pakistan never received 🤣🤣
Though India-Pakistan rivalry has existed for long on the cricket ground, it saw a new dimension when the fans took the rivalry to the meme world a few years ago. It all began with the iconic ‘Mauka Mauka’ advertisement in the run-up to the Indo-Pak contest in the 2015 World Cup. The ad showed a Pakistani fan desperately waiting for the ‘mauka’ (opportunity) to burst crackers to celebrate his side’s triumph over arch-rivals in the World Cup. But as Team India continues its winning streak, the fan is utterly disappointed after every tournament. The iconic ad and the jingle became a rage on social media, and it triggered a flurry of hilarious memes on the India-Pakistan cricket rivalry.
The Broken TV’s
Crazy Cricket fans going berserk and breaking their TV sets in frustration and anger whenever their team lost gave birth to several memes. Since the mid-’90s, there have been media reports about fans from across the borders destroying their TV sets in anger whenever their side lost a crucial match to the arch-rivals. This has led to several hilarious and creative memes with India-Pakistan rivalry as the central theme and trends almost every time the two sides come face to face with each other.
