The two sides are set to meet each other on Sunday in what is arguably the most highly-anticipated clash of the ongoing World Cup.
He was later released as “a gesture of peace”.
When the pilot, Abhinandan Varthaman, was released, he received a hero’s welcome in India.
In the television ad, the “pilot” is still refusing to give information. But this time it’s in response to questions about the upcoming cricket match such as details about the composition of the Indian team, while sipping a cup of tea. It ends with the actor being “dismissed” and then told to leave the “cup” behind – an obvious play on the World Cup trophy.
But while many denounced the advert for its “mocking” tone, others have seen some humour in it.
It’s clear that passions are running high before the hotly-anticipated match which is due to take place on Sunday in Manchester’s Old Trafford stadium. It is set to be attended by thousands of ardent Indian and Pakistani fans.
But seeing as a slew of recent World Cup matches have been cancelled due to rainy weather, it would be quite ironic if this game is also washed out – especially since it has had such a dramatic warm-up.
