Video: India v Pakistan hilarious World Cup TV advert
Come February 15, India will be facing Pakistan in their first World Cup 2015 match, at the Adelaide Oval, Adelaide. The clash is likely to become the most watched cricket match ever, with a record number of viewers expected to tune in.
As per an IBNlive report, the match is expected to attract more than a billion viewers, thereby eclipsing the previous record of 988 million viewers being the most to watch a cricket match, again an Indo-Pak clash – the semi-final of the 2011 World Cup.
That India have never been beaten by Pakistan in an ODI World Cup has only added to the hype surrounding it. The arch-rivals have faced each other 5 times in the history of the World Cup so far – in 1992, 1996, 1999, 2003 and 2011, and India have managed to emerge triumphant every match.
Indian cricketing legend Sachin Tendulkar has been the man-of-the-match in three of the five matches – in 1992, 2003 and 2011, with Navjot Singh Sidhu and Venkatesh Prasad winning the award in 1996 and 1999 respectively.
