Virat Kohli’s response to ‘Ram Siya Ram’ anthem at SA vs IND 2nd Test takes the internet by storm



The incident took place in the 16th over of the match when Keshav Maharaj came out to bat. South Africa recorded their lowest ever home total against India, managing only 55 runs at Cape Town’s Newlands Stadium. Stand-in captain Dean Elgar, in his farewell match, won the toss and chose to bat first. On the other hand, the Indian players were overjoyed and relished every moment on the field during the first session of day one. Meanwhile, a video of Virat Kohli’s reaction to the ‘Ram Siya Ram’ song played during the match has taken the internet by storm. It has become a customary practice that whenever Maharaj walks to the crease, the DJ plays the ‘Ram Siya Ram’ bhajan. As Keshav made his way towards the pitch, the camera zoomed in on Virat Kohli, who mimicked pulling a bowstring and even folded his hands with a smile on his face. Pacer Mohammed Siraj delivered an outstanding performance, tearing through the South African batting line-up with a sensational six-wicket haul. His remarkable display led India to bowl out the home side for a mere 55 runs during the opening day of the second and final Test on Wednesday. Siraj demonstrated exceptional control, conceding only 15 runs from his nine overs. His relentless pace and accuracy forced the South African batters into a complete surrender on a pitch that favored fast bowlers.
