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.

It is also being shared on Twitter with the same caption. Most of the replies to the tweet have pointed out that the image is fake and photoshopped and was created as a joke. (Find an archived version of the tweet here)

While the image is very obviously fake some Twitter users were taken in by it.

A reverse image search of the photograph shows the original photo which does not have the bottle.

It was tweeted by the official handle of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) on July 6, 2019.

The caption with the same image on another website states it was taken at the Headingley stadium in Leeds ahead of India playing Sri Lanka at the during World Cup taking place in England and Wales. The image can be viewed here.
