The most anticipated clash of World Cup 2019 is scheduled on June 16, where India will take on rivals Pakistan at the Old Trafford in Manchester.
The broadcasters of both nations are busy promoting the clash on their respective platforms.
Recently, Pakistan TV aired an advertisement mocking Wing Commander Abhinandan Varthaman. In the 33-second video, a character impersonating Abhinandan was shown wearing the Indian jersey.
On the other hand, Star Sports, the official broadcaster in India also released a promotional video for the match around the Father's Day theme. The video mixed their famous 'Mauka Mauka' campaign with Father's Day for promoting the clash.
Meanwhile, India's Tennis star Sania Mirza has criticised broadcaster of both the nations. Sania took it to Twitter and addressed the advertisements as cringeworthy.
“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!!” Sania Tweeted.
