India vs. Pakistan is a rivalry which is seen in borders and in the game of cricket as well. People in both countries are excited about this epic clash between the two Asian giants. Before the match could even begin, there are a number of speculations between people as who could dominate the game and taste the victory in the end.
Before that, there are several broadcasters who advertise to build up hype for the World Cup clash happening on June 16 which is believed to a crucial game. However, it looks like Pakistan have also come up with an ad which is being criticized all over India as it was racist and hurt sentiments of the country.
Pakistani’s Racist Ad
A new ad on World Cup cricket made by Pakistan has turned the heat amongst the people in India as the neighboring country has taken up the much sensitive matter of Indian Air Force Wing Commander Abhinandan Varthaman in the ad. The very choice of taking to mock India’s hero is termed as unpleasant as it shows them crossing the limits in the name of cricket.
In the following ad, a man is made to look like Wing Commander Abhinandan Varthaman, replicated with a trademark mustache and also sporting a blue jersey, like the Indian cricket team. He is asked several cricket related questions, to which he repeats Abhinandan’s famous statement, ‘I am not supposed to tell you that’.
Jazz TV advt on #CWC19 takes the Indo-Pak air duel to new level. It uses the air duel over Nowshera and Wing Co Abhinandan Varthaman's issue as a prop. @IAF_MCC @thetribunechd @SpokespersonMoD @DefenceMinIndia pic.twitter.com/30v4H6MOpU

He also sips tea from a cup as the scene reminded the intense questioning and severe beatings the Wing Commander was subjected to in captivity.
On February 27 he chased out Pakistani F16 jets intruding into the Indian air space as they tried to target Indian military bases in the Rajouri sector of Jammu and Kashmir. And, in the battle, his aircraft was shot and he was captured and remained in Pakistani military’s custody for 60 hours. He was eventually released as a “goodwill gesture” by the Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan. (Probably, with no options left behind)

#Pakistani don't even deserve a Tea Cup forget #CWC19 …
The best #Pakistan can do is Disown its own Soldiers & mock others… Braves like #abhinandan will always remind them of their Defeats & #दोPilots LIES… pic.twitter.com/6juDWDFvc9
