Ravi Shastri With A Bottle Of Jack During World Cup 2019? No, That’s Bad Photoshop

Netizens photoshop a bottle of Jack Daniels into a team photo of the Men In Blue.

An image purporting to show a bottle of alcohol placed below the chair of Ravi Shastri, coach of the Indian cricket team, during a team photograph, is photoshopped.

The image has been poorly edited by adding a cropped photo of a bottle of Jack Daniels whiskey to it.

BOOM received the morphed picture on its WhatsApp helpline (7700906111) from a reader who asked about the photo.
