They call it an homage
The Indian cricket team, The Rock Stars of Cricket (as they’re being promoted), is touring New Zealand for a series of Twenty20, one-day games and five-day tests.
The advertising campaign may ring a few bells: http://dmgltd.co.nz/?page_id=573
From the website:
Another funny spot from those comedians at DDB, this time a ?homage? (definitely not a rip-off) of Apple?s iconic iPod commercials for New Zealand Cricket, to promote the upcoming tour by the Indian national side - The ?rock-stars? of cricket.

An original thought is so easily borrrowed. Twenty/20. Cricket for the masses.
Is it cricket? Is it not cricket? Is it just not cricket?
I vote for option C. It’s just not cricket.
