Meet the South African player who is Priya Prakash Varrier’s latest fan

It has been a tough time for netizens, especially Indians, to ignore Priya Prakash Varrier posts on social media as the young Indian actress has taken the internet by storm.

Priya has been winning hearts ever since the song ‘Manikya Malaraya Poovi’, from her upcoming Malayalam movie ‘Oru Adaar Love’ was released on YouTube. The 18-year-old’s wink and subsequent romantic expressions at her co-star in the song has indeed made her an overnight celebrity.

Even as her official Instagram account is garnering followers at an unprecedented rate, it seems the viral video has reached South Africa where Virat Kohli-led Indian team and the Proteas are involved in an ODI series.

As it turns out, South Africa’s new-found pace sensation Lungi Ngidi shared a funny ‘video meme’, which features Priya’s wink and one of his recent camera-shy moments. The 21-year-old fast bowler has come up with a cheeky caption for his post as well.

Here are the tweets

Sensational Test debut for Ngidi

Ngidi destroyed the Indian batting line-up in the second Test of the recently-concluded series, which South Africa won 2-1. The right-arm pacer picked up a six-for on debut, including Virat Kohli’s wicket in Centurion.

From South Africa to Chennai Super Kings

In the IPL 2018 players auction, the young sensation was snapped up by the two-time champions CSK at his base price of Rs 50 Lakh.

“Looking forward to the IPL… I’ve been to India with the U19 team, so I’ve experienced it (India) a little and really loved the passion for the game,” he had earlier said.
