South Africa spinner and Durban Super Giants skipper spoke about the feeling when the 'Ram Siya Ram' song from the Adipurush movie is played. During the third ODI between South Africa and India, KL Rahul mentioned the same to Maharaj when the latter came out to bat. Meanwhile, ahead of the upcoming second season of the SA20, the left-arm spinner spoke to the media.

The Proteas player said that he feels in the zone when the song is played. He added that God has been his greatest strength 

“It was obviously something I put forward to the media lady and requested that song to be played,” Maharaj, the Durban’s Super Giants skipper in the upcoming SA20, told PTI during an interview.

“For me, God’s been my greatest blessing and if I get an opportunity, it’s the least I can do and it gets you in the zone and get that respect from other players. Respecting religion and culture is important but it’s a nice feeling to hear ‘Ram Siya Ram’ being played in the background,” Maharaj said.

We have a balanced squad this year: Keshav Maharaj

The DSG spoke about his team and said the team is balanced.

“We have a balanced squad, excited to see boys hitting the straps. We saw really good wickets last year,” Maharaj said.

“It’s a case of assessing conditions. If conditions allow me to do that, I will bowl, if not then will assess when to bowl but be a good leader on field and make good decisions tactically. Hopefully, [the] team can feed off that and the result will take care of itself,” the eloquent Maharaj said.
