“Every Time You Come, They Play This Song”: Rahul’s Lighthearted Conversation with “Keshav Bhai” as the DJ Spins “Ram Siya Ram” – LISTEN IN

With Thursday’s ODI series against the hosts, KL Rahul made amends in South Africa. Under his direction, Team India won the three-match series 2-1 by defeating the Proteas by 78 runs. Arshdeep Singh tore through the South African batting lineup, returning 4 for 30, to help the visitors win another series in the Rainbow country. This came after Tilak Varma’s strong fifty and Sanju Samson’s century.

In addition to India’s win, a humorous exchange over the stump mic between Rahul and South African off-spinner Keshav Maharaj has gone viral on social media. When the hosts were down to 177/6 in the 34th over and Maharaj was standing guard, the event took place. In the meanwhile, the “Ram Siya Ram” song from the movie “Adipurush” was played by the DJ in Boland Park.

After hearing that, Rahul said to Maharaja, “Keshav Bhai. They play this tune each time you approach the crease. “Yes,” the South African cricket player said with a grin.

India recovers

India scored a challenging 296 for eight thanks to measured 108 (114 balls) from Samson and patient 52 (77 balls) from Tilak Varma, his maiden fifty in this format. It was entertaining to see their 116-run partnership for a daring fourth-wicket partnership.

Tony de Zorzi’s fifty runs (81 balls) put South Africa in the lead against the visitors, but they were finally bowled out for 218 in 45.5 overs.

Arshdeep Singh, a left-arm pacer, guided the Indian bowlers with a respectable four-for-30.

Samson’s first-ever ODI century

An important factor in India’s victory on Thursday was Sanju Samson. He expressed his pride in his knock, which helped the side win a series away from home, after winning Player of the Match.

“Proud of it, especially in light of the outcome.” It’s good that I’ve been training hard for a few months now, Sanju said during the post-match press conference.

You have more time in this format to comprehend the wicket and the bowler’s mentality. You may get those additional 10–20 deliveries by batting at the top of the order.

“There is much more to come from Tilak Verma, and the entire nation is extremely proud of how he has stepped up.” The kids are stepping up and carrying out the duties that the elders have established for Indian cricket. Traveling back and forth and performing every two to three days is not easy, but they are accomplishing their goals, Sanju said at the presentation.
