It’s super Sunday. India is going head to head against South Africa, a team that they have played against in three World Cups (1992, 1999 and 2011) and each time ended up on the losing side. However, India is looking to set the record straight and Twitter is already excited. Users are tweeting  predictions, egging the team on and just generally spreading the World Cup fever.

But before we know the victor’s fate, hashtags like #maukamauka, #SAvIND and #INDvsSA have been trending all day giving us a sense of how India hopes to not recreate history this time. The viral ‘mauka mauka’ ad that was created during the India and Pakistan match returned with some tweaks, spins and apt replies.
