Fact Check: Old Video Of Pakistani Cricketers’ Celebration Falsely Linked To WC’23 Finals


A video showing Pakistani cricketers Wasim Akram, Waqar Younis, Misbah-ul-Haq, and Shoaib Malik, dancing in a newsroom is doing the rounds on social media. Many users have shared the video claiming that they danced in joy after Australia defeated India in the World Cup 2023 final. 

A Facebook user posted the viral visual with a caption: ভারতকে হারিয়ে অস্ট্রেলিয়া বিশ্বকাপ জেতার পর পাকিস্তানে আনন্দের বন্যা🤣🐸🇵🇰🇵🇰🇵🇰
(English translation: Flood of joy in Pakistan after Australia won the World Cup after defeating India🤣🐸🇵🇰🇵🇰🇵🇰)

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

Running a Reverse Image Search of the video keyframes, the NM team identified a tweet on an unverified account, dated November 9, 2022. The caption in the tweet informs that all these cricketers started dancing in joy at the sets of a Pakistani show The Pavilion, when Pakistan reached the final of the T20 World Cup 2022 after beating New Zealand. 

Searching further, our team found a YouTube video on the official channel of A Sports — broadcaster of the Pakistani cricket show The Pavilion, dated November 9, 2022. 

The description of the video confirms that these Pakistani cricketers were dancing to celebrate the team’s qualification for the T20 World Cup final. 

Therefore, we can conclusively say that the viral post’s claim that Pakistani cricketers dancing in joy after Australia defeated India in the World Cup 2023 final is fabricated.
