KL Rahul humorously pointed out to Keshav Maharaj that every time the South African player enters the field, the DJ plays ‘Ram Siya Ram,’ a Hindu devotional song.

India secured a convincing victory against South Africa in the third ODI, with a stellar performance led by Sanju Samson’s remarkable century that propelled the Men in Blue to a solid total of 296/8. During South Africa’s chase at Boland Park, Paarl, when Keshav Maharaj, batting at number 8, stepped onto the field, a Hindu devotional song ‘Ram Siya Ram’ played.

KL Rahul, noticing this trend, amusingly informed Maharaj that the DJ consistently plays the song whenever the South African enters to bat. Rahul humorously inquired if the tune is also aired when Maharaj bowls, to which the spinner nodded affirmatively, captured by the stump mic. “Keshav bhai, every time you come, they play this song,” Rahul remarked.

South Africa’s innings concluded at 218 in 45.5 overs, conceding a 2-1 series win to India. Arshdeep Singh dismissed Keshav Maharaj for 14 runs from 27 balls, finishing with 1/37 in the first innings by also dismissing Tilak Varma. Arshdeep shone with the ball, securing impressive figures of 4/30 in nine overs, while Avesh Khan and Washington Sundar each grabbed two wickets.
