These adverts have been playing up on the tension and recent events including one mocking Indian Air Force pilot Abhinandan Varthman who was captured in Pakistan after his plane went down after shooting down a Pakistan F16 jet.

Tennis sensation Sania Mirza was quick to take to social media to slam the producers of such ads for brewing hate between the two countries and sent a strong message trying to make them understand that is no more than just a cricket match.

With the highly anticipated clash between arch-rivals India and Pakistan round the corner, Cricket World Cup 2019 advertisements on both sides of the border have become a topic of debate.

A World Cup ad featuring Indian Air Force Wing Commander Abhinandan Varthaman lookalike hasn't gone too well in India, while in India there have been ads about how India have been dominating Pakistan in the World Cups.

India's Star TV, on the other hand, has been running an ad where an Indian supporter describes himself as Pakistan's "abbu" (father), referring to India's domination over their rivals in the World Cup.

"Cringeworthy ads on both sides of the border, seriously guys, you don't need to "hype up" or market the match anymore specially with rubbish! it has ENOUGH attention already!"
