Tanuj, from New Delhi set the internet on fire when a video of him hitting a one-handed six was shared by an unknown social media user on his personal account.

In the video, Tanuj can be seen hitting a huge six by using only his right arm, hence leaving sports lovers in an Awe.

Hundreds of social media users from Jammu and Kashmir shared the video with different and false captions with names of kashmiri players and claiming the batsman to be a kashmiri.

As the trend goes, various verified accounts on Twitter too shared the video with false names and praising the cricketing talent of Kashmir with most of the accounts mentioning and tagging internationally recognised cricket players and the BCCI.

Our fact checking team tried to verify the source and authenticity of the video and found that the same video was first uploaded by a YouTube channel, “Sportshighlights hub” with the caption – “one handed six by a batter from Delhi namely Tanuj.”

The same video was later shared by hundreds of sports loving social media accounts from Delhi and other states of India, praising this unique and insane batting style of Tanuj.
