Fact Check: Video Of Pak Players Celebrating Asia Cup 2022 Win Falsely Linked To Asia Cup 2023


The first Asia Cup encounter between India and Pakistan was washed away by rain on September 2, 2023. Against this backdrop, a viral video showing Pakistani players celebrating in the dressing room is doing the rounds on social media. Many users claim that players were celebrating cancellation of the match due to rain. 

A Facebook user posted the viral post with a caption:
मैं तो कुछ और ही सोचा था कल एक पोस्ट भी की लेकिन ये तो सुपर फट्टू निकले
बारिश के कारण मैच रद्द होने के बाद पाकिस्तान के ड्रेसिंग रूम से लीक हुआ फुटेज:
#INDvPAK | #AsiaCup2023
(English translation: I was thinking something else yesterday I posted a clip but it turned out to be super stupid Footage leaked from Pakistan’s dressing room after match was cancelled due to rain: #INDvPAK | #AsiaCup2023)

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

Running a Reverse Image Search of the video keyframes, the NM team identified a tweet on the official handle of Pakistan Cricket, dated September 2022. The video looks like a longer version of the viral post. As per its caption, the clip is from Pakistan’s win over India in the 2022 Asia Cup. 

The same video was also published on the official YouTube channel of Pakistan Cricket on September 4, 2022. This clarifies that it has nothing to do with the ongoing Asia Cup 2023.

Firstpost, too, reported on the raw celebrations by Pakistani players after beating India in the last-over thriller in Asia Cup 2022.

Therefore, we can conclusively say that the viral video, claiming to show Pakistani players celebrating the rain-hit match against India in Asia Cup 2023, is misleading.
