So now we know why 'Mr Mauka' was wearing India's blue jersey

Guy from the 1st Mauka Mauka TVC was seen walking around wearing India's jersey instead of Pakistan's green one

March 06, 2015

The wait is finally over. Earlier in the day, we reported how Star Sports' latest teaser for the World Cup showed  the Pakistani guy from the 1st Mauka Mauka TVC walking around wearing India's blue jersey, but left viewers guessing why till the end of India's match against the West Indies. 

Well, India sealed their progress to the Cricket World Cup quarter-finals as they recorded a four-wicket win over West Indies and subsequently we found the back story behind Mr Mauka roaming around wearing the wrong jersey.

"Jeet India Ki, Par Mauka Pakistan Ka! ‪#‎MaukaMauka‬ ‪#‎INDvIRE‬," Star Sports said on social media after the video with their next instalment of the advertisement, which also stars Harsha Bhogle and Aakash Chopra. If you haven't figured it out already, take a look for yourself.




Here's the teaser that left us guessing why Mr Mauka would be wearing a blue jersey and some Twitter reactions below:











Earlier at the onset of the World Cup, India hit a raw nerve with their World Cup advertisement showing how they have defeated Pakistan in the tournament five times in a row since 1992.

The advertisement, that went viral on social media, showed a Pakistani watching the India vs Pakistan match in 1992, 1996, 1999, 2003 and 2011. The footage shows how India defeated Pakistan in all five matches and the man brings out fireworks and doesn’t get to light them.

In the end, the man looks disappointed and says: “Kab phorangay yaar?”

Here is the first advertisement:




Ali | 9 years ago | Reply How a guy survived in India while he was supporting Pakistan???...really funny :D
Jigz Khan | 9 years ago | Reply Before 2011 world cup it was I think ICC champions trophy which was held in SA. Pak defeated india in Centurian where Yousuf and Malik played extremely well. Pak reached to Semis and rarely it happened in the History of the cricket where Indian Whole Nation was praying for Pakistan victory over Aussies. It was low scoring nd nail bitting game b/w Pak and Aus and Australia hardly won by 1 or two wickets.. So it was Mauka Mauka for Indian Guys :D Don't get so excited Indians. cricket is a funny game. If Mauka Mauka today for Pakistan who knows tomorow mauka Mauka for you.. Any ways alhumdulillah we are back in the game we defeated SA and insha Allah we won't be relaying on others to reach to the semis :) nevertheless we took it lightly and enjoyed the Ad.. :)
