A photo of a girl is shared to convey wishes to Rashi Kanojia on being selected for the Indian women’s cricket team, mentioning her as the daughter of Agra district, Uttar Pradesh. Some of the posts with such a claim can be seen here, here and here.
What is the truth?
When searching with the name Rashi Kanojia, we found multiple articles reporting the news of her being selected for the Indian women’s cricket team. But the images published and the viral image appears to be of two different people.
Jagran article is found featuring an image of Rashi Kanojia playing. It is reported that she is the fifth player in the city after Hemlata Kala, Preeti Dimri, Poonam Yadav and Deepti Sharma’s place in the Indian cricket team. Rashi Kanojia was participating in the ongoing Indian women’s cricket team’s camp at the National Cricket Academy in Bengaluru from June 13.
