Here are some of the tweets that people are sharing while falsely claiming that the picture is from the ongoing match between CSK and GT.

The image is originally from a match that was played back in 2020 in Guwahati’s Barsapara Stadium. During the match the ground staff used devices like steam irons and hairdryers in an effort to dry the pitch.

GT faced a light drizzle during their innings that didn’t cause any stoppages. However, the rain intensified after the third ball of the first over when CSK started batting.
