The legendary rivalry between India and Pakistan cricket teams, and the 6-0 record India has over arch rivals Pakistan in the World Cups, gave rise to a promo video titled 'Mauka Mauka' which was instantly loved by the fans.

This time, ICC CWC 2019 official broadcasters Star Sports have mixed the International Father's Day theme with the mauka mauka promo. The video shows Vikas Malhotra, the actor who earned fame due to the mauka mauka videos, playing the Pakistani son whose father kept waiting for Pakistan to beat the Indian cricket team in a World Cup match.

Malhotra, playing the son of Pakistani fan, is seen advising the Bangladeshi fan and claiming that "one should keep trying." He says to the Bangladesh cricket fan wearing the Bangla tigers jersey, that his father had advised him to keep trying and never give up.
Immediately, the India fan is seen asking rhetorically, "Hey, when did I (your father) told you this?" The Pakistani fan doesn't get the 'Baap' jibe at first and says "Not you, my Abbu (father) told me" but then stops immediately when he understands that it was a jibe by the Indian fan.
