Kaviya Maran, the daughter of Sunrisers Hyderabad co-owner Kalanithi Maran, has become an internet sensation. Kaviya is no longer a new face on the Indian cricket scene. Aside from being spotted in stadiums during IPL matches, what brought her more attention was her attendance at the bidding war for her team SRH during the IPL auctions over the years. However, Kaviya’s fan base has expanded beyond India. Kaviya received a marriage proposal from a fan during a recent T20 match in South Africa, which is now going viral on social media.
Sunrisers Eastern Cape, a sister franchise of IPL team Sunrisers Hyderabad, faced Paarl Royals on Thursday at the Boland Park ground in Paarl. Sunrisers Eastern Cape won the toss and chose to bowl first. They got off to a good start, with Paarl Royals scoring 60 for 3 at one point after 8 overs.
This is when the camera pans to a fan in the audience who is holding a placard that reads, “Kavya Maran, will you marry me?” The video was quickly shared by the SA20’s official Twitter account and went viral.
