South Africa's left-arm spinner Keshav Maharaj revealed that he asked the song 'Ram Siya Ram' to be played in the background when he comes out to bat during the recent Cape Town Test against India. The veteran spinner opined that the song gets him into a good zone and owes his playing career to the almighty.

With the song 'Ram Siya Ram' reverberating throughout the venue, star Indian batter Virat Kohli performed the bow and strings gesture, imitating Lord Ram, followed by folding hands. The former Indian captain has notably received invitation to Ayodhya for Lord Ram's Temple's inauguration set to happen on January 22nd.

"Obviously, something that I put forward to the media lady and requested that song to be played. For me, God has been my greatest blessing, giving me guidance and opportunity. So, it's the least that I can do and it also just gets you in your zone. It's a nice feeling walking out (into the ground) to hear 'Ram Siya Ram' playing in the background." Maharaj told PTI.
