Pakistan files complaint at ICC regarding father’s day themed Indian TV commercial for Indo-Pak match

Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has filed a complaint with the International Cricket Council (ICC) over the broadcaster Star Sports’ television commercial related to the India-Pakistan World Cup match, which is underway at Old Trafford.

“PCB has officially filed a complaint to ICC over the advertisement,” an ICC source told ANI.

In the commercial, a Bangladeshi fan can be seen asking a Pakistani fan about the biggest clash. The Pakistani replies saying that his ‘Abbu’ (father) used to tell him that one should keep trying but an Indian fan interrupts, saying, ‘Maine kab kaha” (When did I tell you that?)

It is been understood that the global governing body of cricket has received the complaint by PCB and also spoke to the broadcaster.

“ICC have received a complaint from PCB and also had a word with star sports,” the ICC source continued.
