Shoaib Akhtar says “It’s not funny anymore” in T20 World Cup 2021. He has expressed his displeasure against the “Mauka Mauka” advertisement. He was mentioned that it cannot be deemed funny anymore. Akhtar exhibited his desire to give India another “Mauka” to beat Pakistan in the finals. Also, the “Mauka Mauka” advertising campaign was started. Prior to the Ind-Pak tie in the ODI World Cup 2015. The connotation for ‘Mauka Mauka‘ is that there is a chance for the Pakistan team. It is to win their first World Cup match against India.
However, during the ongoing T20 World Cup 2021. Pakistan took the opportunity with both hands. Also, ended up losing World Cup matches. Against India by beating them comprehensively with ten wickets. While posting a video on his official YouTube channel. Shoaib Akhtar mentioned that he wants Kohli to meet Pakistan in the World Cup finals.
“And for India, we are waiting for you in the finals. Because we want to beat you in the finals and that is why we are praying for you to qualify for the finals. We want to give India another “Mauka” in the finals,” Shoaib Akhtar said.
“The reason why I used the word “mauka” is that it is not funny anymore. It’s alright to make advertisements and get entertained but you are hitting a nation, which is a very proud nation (Pakistan). It’s not funny anymore because it’s hurting the nation, which is very proud,” said Akhtar.
Lastly, the Babar Azam-led Pakistan side was the first team to qualify for the semifinals of the T20 World Cup 2021. The Indian team is still strangling hard to keep their hopes alive for the knockout stages. Also, following Afghanistan’s defeat to India. In several Pakistani fans cried foul on Twitter that the Ind-Afg tie was ‘fixed’. They are made by faceless accounts on Twitter, actual sports journalists. Also, even a few celebrities joined the propaganda.
