Days after the Indian cricket team’s historic win against Australia at the Brisbane Cricket Ground (The Gabba), a video of a crowd singing ‘Vande Mataram’ is doing rounds on social media.
The caption of the post reads, “I have goosebumps. Historic win for #TeamIndia @RishabhPant17 you nailed it#AUSvsIND #AUSvINDtest #IndiavsAustralia”
Here’s the link to the above post.
NewsMobile fact-checked the above post and found it to be misleading and false.
While going through the comment section on the post, we found some comments that suggested that the video clip was taken in Dubai.
Taking a cue from the comments, we extracted keyframes of the video and did a Reverse Image Search on the frames. The search led us to the same YouTube video uploaded on September 24, 2018.
The title of the video read, “Thousands of Indians Singing in Unity in Dubai Cricket Stadium.”
We compared the stadium in the viral video to Dubai’s cricket stadium and found many similarities in both the stadiums including the famous ‘Ring of Light’ structure.
Hence the above information makes it clear that the video is OLD and not taken at the Brisbane Cricket Ground (The Gabba).
