After winning seven matches in a row, Team India’s 2015 World Cup campaign came to an end on March 26th when Australia, the champions, defeated them by 95 runs in the second semi-final at SCG. Throughout India’s journey in the World Cup, the ‘Mauka Mauka’ advertisements by Star Sports entertained the cricket fans and became the talk of the town. 

It all began with a Pakistani fan in his childhood watching the 1992 World Cup match between India and Pakistan. When Pakistan were on the verge of victory, he decided to celebrate by bursting crackers. But at the end, India held their nerve and defeated their arch-rivals which left the fan disappointed. He took the crackers and placed it in a shelf and decided to burst them when Pakistan beat them in World Cups. He waited for the same in 1996, 1999 and 2003 to burst the crackers, but again, he was left disappointed by his team. In the meantime, he got married and his son grew and was watching with his father hoping that Pakistan will beat India in the Semi-Finals of the 2011 World Cup and then they can burst those crackers. Once again, they were trolled and were waiting for the 2015 World Cup. Unfortunately for them, they couldn’t do it again and with this, India have a 6-0 winning streak over Pakistan in World Cups.
 
Just like this, Star Sports prepared an advertisement in which they predicted that India would beat Australia in the semi-final and meet New Zealand in the World Cup final. Unfortunately, that never happened, but the video of it got viral on Internet few hours back.
 
Here is the video:
