The caption in Hindi with the picture read: “ये हे औकात ईनकी.सभी को अछे से चेक कीया..कहीं बोंम वोंम तो नहीं ले आये साले पाकिस्तानी.😊😊
ईससे बडी हार कोई हो नहीं शकती”


The team of fact-checkers at NewsMobile checked the above picture and found it to be FAKE.
When we cropped the two picture and put it through Reverse Image Search individually, we found the original picture which shows that no one is checking the Pakistani players.
We further found that the Getty Image on their official website was originally taken on September 19th, 2018 during Asia Cup.

In the above picture, players of both the teams are actually standing for the national anthem before the match.
Hence, the above information proves that the viral post is FAKE.
