Yes, you read that right, Vicky Kausal has a doppelganger. That’s according to ICC who recently compared Sri Lanka’s captain Dimuth Karunaratne and ask their followers on Twitter what was their take on the issue. However, this is not the first time World Cup organizers are finding out similarities between athletes.
They recently posted a tweet comparing French footballer Olivier Giroud to the Sri Lankan player Isuru Udana. Yes, that’s right, as the World Cup continues to wear on, sports enthusiasts have begun pick out doppelgangers of their favourite celebrities and cricketers from those out on the field.
With everyone glued to their screens for the ongoing World Cup; they couldn’t help but notice doppelgangers out on the fields.
Cricket World Cup posted two pictures and asked Twitter: “How much does Sri Lanka captain Dimuth Karunaratne look like Vicky Kaushal”. ICC’s tweet read: “While we are at it…How much does Sri Lanka captain #DimuthKarunaratne look like @vickykaushal09?”

Another tweet it shared said: “Is it just us or do you notice the resemblance? #IsuruUdana #OlivierGiroud #SLvWI | #LionsRoar | #CWC19”. While ICC felt the resemblance strikingly coincidental, one user on Twitter asked the Bollywood actor: “Kya aapka bhai sri lanka ke mele me kho gaya tha (Did you lose your brother at a fair in Sri Lanka?”
Twitterati, who could find no resemblance between the two, found the post hilarious.

Some people agreed with ICC’s views of Vicky Kaushal and Dimuth Karunaratne looking similar, some others felt the cricketing body was kidding.
