The Indian cricket team is scheduled to play against Pakistan on June 16 at the Old Trafford Cricket Ground in Manchester.

The excitement to see the two countries on the field is already at its peak. The latest advertisement shared by Pakistan on World Cup 2019 has been making rounds on social media.

In a 33-second video released by Pakistan's Jazz TV, the character impersonating Abhinandan can be seen sporting the Indian Air Force pilot's signature moustache. 

In the advertisement, we can see a look-alike of Abhinandan, however, instead of a military dress, the character is shown wearing the jersey of the Indian cricket team. 

The look-a-like repeats Abhinandan's now-viral statement: "I'm sorry, I am not supposed to tell you this" several times in the advertisement as he is asked questions related to India's playing XI and the team's strategy if it wins the toss.

He is also seen sipping a cup of tea—much like the way Abhinandan was seen in clips made public by the Pakistani authorities after his capture on February 27.

After two questions, the character impersonating Abhinandan is told by the interrogator to leave. As the impersonator gets up to leave, he is pulled back by the interrogator who says: "Ek second ruko! cup kahan leke ja raho ho? (Wait a second! Where are you taking the cup?)." The idea to pun on the word "cup" was to refer to the coveted trophy.
