Traditional temple

Keshav Maharaj visits a temple in Kerala and fans call it a lesson for ‘woke’ Indian cricketers

The South African cricket team is in India for a three-game T20I series which will be the last three games for the Men in Blue before the next T20 World Cup to iron out any flaws they feel within the team.

The last time the Proteas traveled to India, they managed to draw 2-2 with the series final raining down in Bengaluru.

South Africa have an incredible record against India this year in all formats.

The Proteas beat India 2-1 in the three-game home Test series earlier this year and then shut out the Men in Blue in the ODI series.

India have struggled against them and getting a series under their belt ahead of the World Cup would be ideal preparation for the men in blue.

On Monday, South African spinner Keshav Maharaj was seen at Sree Padmanabhaswamy temple in Kerala in traditional dress.

Photos of Keshav Maharaj, the Indian-born South African cricketer, wearing traditional clothes while visiting the temple went viral on social media within minutes.

Few users on Twitter used the example of Keshav Maharaj to teach a lesson to ‘woke’ Indian gamers, who social media users say barely express their love for their religion.

While it is impossible to stop people from expressing their views on social media on any subject, in defense of Indian gamers, they are very popular characters in India and it is impossible for them to travel freely as Keshav Maharaj did.

Indian cricketers often avoid visiting any public places without sufficient security because fans in India worship them as demigods and if they try to travel freely in public places, security issues might become a big problem for them.
