India is a cricket loving nation, and the passionate fans of the country can go to any extent to showcase their love for the game. A couple did exactly this when they decided to broadcast India-South Africa World Cup match on a big projector during their wedding ceremony. Video of the unusual wedding ceremony was shared online after which it went viral.
“Yesi shadi dekhi kya apne only crickete lover,” reads the caption of the post shared by indian_cricketer_player.
The clip opens to show a huge lawn area where people are seated on chairs and watching a wedding take place. As the ceremony takes place, there is another stage installed on one corner of the lawn with India-South Africa World Cup match being broadcast on big screen. One can see Ravindra Jadeja bowlig to the South African batsmen.
The video was shared a week ago and has since then garnered a massive 656,950likes and tons of comments.
