A video showing a man dressed in the Australian cricket team's jersey while raising chants of "Vande Mataram" and "Bharat Mata Ki Jai" are being widely shared across social media platforms.
Users have shared the clip claiming that it shows an Australian national raising those slogans after Australia defeated the Pakistan men's cricket team by 5 wickets in a recent T20 world cup match held in Dubai.
However, we found that the video was from January 2021, and was captured after India won the Test series against Australia.
The short video is being shared claiming that it shows an Australian cricket fan chanting "Bharat Mata Ki Jai" after Pakistan suffered a five-wicket loss in a T20 world cup match held on 11 November.
WHAT WE FOUND
Using relevant keywords, we came across multiple news reports from January 2021 that carried the video or a screengrab from it.
One such report by DNA noted that the video showed a "lone Australian fan" who raised chants after India defeated Australia on Day 5 of the Gabba Test in the Border-Gavaskar Trophy.
Other reports noted that the video was shot at the Gabba, which is another name for the Brisbane cricket ground in Australia's Queensland.
We found a video of the incident from another angle on YouTube, which was also uploaded in January 2021. This video shows some background details, which helped us geolocate the clip.
On Google Maps, we saw photos of the Gabba stadium and found similar elements as ones present in the video.
Evidently, a video shot in Brisbane in January 2021 after India defeated Australia was shared as a recent clip of an Australian man supporting India after their victory over Pakistan in the ICC T20 World Cup held in Dubai.
