Doctored video passed off as Zimbabwean players dancing to Jai Shree Ram song

A video is circulating in which Zimbabwean national cricket players can be seen dancing with the background music of Jai Shree Ram. It is claimed that the players danced to the tune of Jai Shree Ram after Zimbabwe defeated Pakistan in the T20 World Cup 2022.

An unverified YouTube channel published the video with the caption, "team Zimbabwe dancing to Jai Shree Ram song"

Fact Check

NewsMeter performed a reverse image search of the video's keyframe and found a longer version of the same video posted on the Twitter page of Zimbabwe Cricket on 28 October with the caption, "Celebrating yet another terrific performance!"

In this video, the viral clip appears at the 0.42-minute time mark, but the Jai Shree Ram song is not playing in the background.

The video of players dancing was tweeted by Zimbabwe Cricket following Zimbabwe's victory over Pakistan by one run in the thrilling contest in the ongoing T20 World Cup.

It is evident that Zimbabwe players were not dancing in the video to the tune of the Jai Shree Ram's song. Hence, the claim is false.
