Fact Check: Viral Post, Showing Rohit Sharma Saluting Jurel After 4th Test Win, Is Morphed


A picture showing the Indian Cricket Team captain saluting Dhruv Jurel is being widely circulated on social media. Many users claim even Rohit Sharma praised Jurel’s batting in the 4th Test match, and gave him a salute when he came back after the end of second innings. 

A Facebook user posted the viral post with the following caption:
देख लीजिए #AnandMahindra …जुरेल ने क्या कमाया है…
ड्रेसिंग रूम से उतर के #कैप्टन #रोहितशर्मा ने जुरेल को Grand Salute से सम्मान दिया….
     और हाँ अपनी थार ,अपनी गान में डाल लीजिए पिलीज़… महेंद्रा साब..😎

(English translation: Watch #AnandMahindra … What Jurel has earned…
After getting out of the dressing room #Captain #RohitSharma honored Jurel with Grand Salute….
And yes put your thar in your anthem please… Mahendra Saab.. 😎)

NewsMobile fact-checked the viral post, and found it to be false.

Running a Google Keyword Search about Jurel’s batting and the Indian team’s response, the NM team identified a tweet by Jurel himself on his official X handle. Here we see both Rohit and Rahul Dravid hugging him when he came back to the pavilion after taking India to victory in the second innings. We don’t see Rohit saluting him in the picture.

Searching further, we came across a news article in Sportskeeda. Here too, we see Rohit and Dravid hugging Jurel after India won the match. 

Replaying the 4th day of the 4th Test match on Jio Cinema, we found Rohit hugging Jurel before moving on to shake hands with England captain Ben Stokes.  

Therefore, we can conclusively say that the viral post, claiming Rohit Sharma saluted Dhruv Jurel for his batting after winning the Test match, is edited.
