Kaviya Maran, daughter of co-owner of Sunrisers Hyderabad Kalanithi Maran, is unquestionably a viral sensation on the internet. In the world of Indian cricket, Kaviya is no longer a relatively unknown name.
In addition to being seen in stadiums during Indian Premier League matches, one of the things that helped bring her greater attention was her attendance at the IPL auctions for her team, SRH, throughout the course of the past several years.
Despite this, Kaviya today has a following that extends beyond the borders of India. Kaviya was the recipient of a marriage proposal from a supporter during a Twenty20 match that took place not too long ago in South Africa. The proposal is currently doing the rounds on various social media platforms.
On Thursday, a match between Sunrisers Eastern Cape and Paarl Royals was held at the Boland Park field in Paarl. Sunrisers Eastern Cape is a sister franchise of the Indian Premier League team Sunrisers Hyderabad.
After winning the coin toss, the Sunrisers Eastern Cape decided to bowl first in the match. They got off to a strong beginning, and at one point in the game, the score for Paarl Royals was 60 for 3 after 8 overs had been completed.
At this point, the camera swept across the audience and focused on a supporter who was holding a banner that read, “Kavya Maran, would you marry me?”
It didn’t take long for the video to become public knowledge after it was posted to the official SA20 Twitter account.
In the game that was played between Sunrisers Eastern Cape and Paarl Royals, the former team came out on top with a victory by a margin of five wickets.
The best score that Paarl Royals could manage was 127 for 7 in 20 overs, and Sunrisers Eastern Cape reached their target in 18.2 overs. It was the third victory for the side captained by Kaviya Maran across the five matches that are taking place in the current inaugural season of SA20.
The Pretoria Capitals are currently in first place in the points standings, and the Sunrisers Eastern Cape are currently in second place.
