As India and Pakistan get ready to face off in Manchester on June 16 in the highly anticipated World Cup 2019 clash, cricket fans across the globe cannot not help but pray that the rain gods in England would side with them just this one day. The two teams have encountered each other six times in the past, while making it the most popular rivalry in modern game.
As tensions run high on both sides, social media users saw it as an opportunity to lighten the mood a little with Bollywood-inspired memes. More than siding with a particular team in the match, fans chose to take a dig at the weather conditions in England, hoping that the clouds spare the city on Sunday. From Priyanka Chopra's Met Gala dress to Ayushmann Khurrana's Dum Laga Ke Haisha, all stars and films fell victim to online meme-making.
Actor and music artist Ali Zafar also posted an image from one of his films that shows him looking up in the sky. He used this to poke fun at ICC and the World Cup enthusiasts.
See Ali Zafar's and other fan reactions to India and Pakistan match:
While India holds a dominant 6-0 win-loss record against Pakistan in World Cup history, Pakistan are still way ahead of India with 73 victories to India's 54. The highly anticipated match is scheduled to take place at 3 pm IST on Sunday.
