The Sunrisers Eastern Cape continued their winning run in the ongoing SA20 2023 with a five-wicket victory over the Paarl Royals at the Boland Park on Paarl on Thursday, January 19 and are only going from strength to strength as the tournament progresses.

Meanwhile, the Sunrisers franchise owner Kaviya Maran was also in the news not for watching her team’s performance from the stands, but her name was taken by a spectator on a placard with a marriage proposal.

After the completion of the eighth over of the Paarl Royals innings, the cameras focused on a fan who was watching the match sitting on the grass area holding a placard in his that read, “KAVYA MARAN, WILL YOU MARRY ME?” with a heart emoji. The fan’s marriage proposal was posted by SA20 on their official social media handles in no time.

Kaviya Maran is the daughter of one of the media moguls Kalanithi Maran, who is the founder of the Sun Network. Apart from the Sunrisers Eastern Cape, Kaviya also co-owns Sunrisers Hyderabad and is reportedly involved with SUN music as well as the all the FM channels of the Sun TV Network.

Maran has been actively participating at the annual Indian Premier League (IPL) auctions where she can be seen discussing the strategies and engaged in intense bidding war for onboarding players along with some of the top officials of the SRH management. She also attends the Orange Army’s matches and in the last couple of years, her reactions to her team’s on-field performances during matchdays have been doing rounds on social media.

Prior to their impressive victory over the Paarl Royals, the Sunrisers Eastern Cape had done the double over the MI Cape Town in their previous two fixtures. They sit comfortably at the second position in the points table behind Pretoria Capitals having won three of their five matches with 12 points to their tally.

The Sunrisers would be enthusiastic on continuing their winning streak when they face Joburg Super Kings on Saturday, January 21.
