Sania Mirza has slammed commercials being broadcast in both India and Pakistan ahead of their high-voltage clash in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 on June 16 in Manchester.

While Pakistan's Jazz TV runs an advertisement which shows a figure very closely resembling Indian Wing Commander Abhinandan Varthaman who had a few months back been captured by the Pakistan Military before being allowed to come back to India. The person is seen sporting India's jersey and the pilot's trademark moustache, who utters the viral word, "I'm sorry, I am not supposed to tell you this", when asked about India's plans for the game.

India has a 6-0 advantage over Pakistan in the matches played in the World Cups. We need to retaliate!

In India, on the other hand, the host broadcaster has been running an ad where an Indian supporter calls himself Pakistan's father, referring to India's domination over their rivals in the World Cup.

As if the match needed any more spice the television ads on both sides have the border have added to the hype around the encounter. "It's only cricket for God sake, and if you think it's anymore than that then get a grip or get a life!", Mirza wrote on her Twitter handle.

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!It's only cricket for God sake, and if you think it's anymore than that then get a grip or get a life!

Tension escalated between India and Pakistan after the Pulwama terror attack in which 40 Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) personnel were killed on February 14.
