KL Rahul and Keshav Maharaj share ‘Ram Siya Ram’ moment in India’s match against South Africa in the third ODI – Magazine Creations

KL Rahul led Team India to an ODI series win against South Africa. The achievement achieved at Boland Park in Paarl was unique. He represents KL KL as the second Indian cricket captain to secure an ODI series win in South Africa. The other captain was Virat Kohli.

Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli and Jasprit Bumrah did not play, but India did not seem to miss the veteran players. However, the Men in Blue were able to beat South Africa despite having many of their players who had played in the World Cup.

Sanju Samson scored his maiden international century since his debut eight years ago. Arshdeep Singh also made a huge impact with a four-wicket haul. India registered a 78-run win in the series decider. The win concludes India’s white-ball campaign in South Africa, highlighted by a 1-1 draw in the T20I series.

“Ram Siya Ram” moment.

During the third ODI, a hilarious moment happened when Keshav Maharaj came to bat and the song ‘Ram Siya Ram’ was played on the field. According to KL Rahul, the song is often played when the South African bowler bats. Maharaj replied yes while Rahul smiled.

In a separate event, earlier in the 2023 World Cup, Keshav Maharaj celebrated South Africa’s victory over Pakistan with a post on Instagram. He expressed his confidence in God and his appreciation for the performance of his team, mentioning in particular Tabraiz Shamsi and Aiden Markram. Along with a photo capturing the victory, he included the phrase “Jai Shri Hanuman.”

A rare series win for India

The ODI cricket series unfolded with India taking an early lead, only for South Africa to draw level in the second ODI at Gqeberha. But the decisive result saw India make a remarkable comeback.

This is India’s second season win over South Africa at home in a bilateral series. The first was in 2018 under Virat Kohli. Rahul has now become the second Indian captain to achieve this feat.
