Indian cricketer Virendra Sehwag and several Hindi news outlets shared an old and edited video that showed a Pakistani man breaking the television.

India started their 2022 T20 World Cup campaign with an iconic win over its arch rivals, Pakistan. The viral video shows a pan breaking the TV, watching the India-Pakistan game. The man is also seen kicking the TV in anger.

Indian media organisations like Times Now, ABP News, Live Hindustan, NDTV, Jagran, etc. shared the same video and also published articles related to the same.
