“He should marry her"
A spectator cheering for her team during the T20 Australia-Pakistan semi-final has gone viral for her uncanny resemblance to Shadab Khan.
Many social media users questioned if Shadab’s doppelgänger was his sister.
Finding the lookalikes of celebrities and famous personalities is a popular trend on social media.
Some of them are so strikingly similar that it can be difficult to identify the lookalikes and celebrities apart.
In a tweet that has since gone viral, a picture of all-rounder Shadab Khan has been compared to a female cricket fan.
The woman is seen smiling widely as she holds her hands together whilst watching the match.
Netizens flocked to Twitter to share their thoughts.
One user said: “Female version of Shadab Khan.”
Whilst another said: “Shadab found his soulmate, all the girls should stop simping now.”
Another Twitter user compared their features and said:
“It’s even crazier how their teeth have the same shape.”
A fourth user added:
“He should marry her, their children will be carbon copies of them.”
