This delightful interaction between the Indian maestro and Maharaj resonated widely across social media, capturing a charming moment on the field.
Speaking about the ‘Ram Siya Ram; song being played during his entrance, Maharaj said: “That is my entrance song. I am a devotee of Lord Hanuman and Lord Ram so I think it is a fitting song.”
The two-match Test series ended in a 1-1 draw. South Africa clinched the first Test while India bounced back to win the second Test at Newlands.
“India is always a fierce opponent and if you want to be the best in the world you have to test yourself against the best in the world so it was a really good challenge and a really exciting series,” Maharaj added.
After the historic win, Team India batting star Virat Kohli gave his signed Test jersey to South African left-arm spinner Keshav Maharaj.
