Fact Check

NewsMeter ran a keyword search on Twitter and found a tweet in which the user claimed that the video is from the second T20 match between India and Australia played in Nagpur on 23 September.

Further, on performing a reverse image search of the video's keyframe, we found the same video posted on Twitter on 24 September. It said that 'Jai Shri Ram' slogans were raised during the second T20 match in Nagpur.

We could not verify whether the audio was digitally added to the viral video or the slogans of 'Jai Shri Ram' were raised during the second T20 match in Nagpur.

The match between India and Australia was played on 25 September in Hyderabad, and we found the viral video posted by a user on 24 September. From this, we can conclude that the viral video is not from the Hyderabad match. Hence, the claim is false.

Claim Review:‘Jai Shri Ram’ slogans were raised during the India-Aus T20 match in Hyderabad.
