The clash between Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) and Mumbai Indians (MI) was one hell of a match and will be remembered for a very long time. The saffron army led by Pat Cummins not only beat MI, but registered 277 runs, the highest ever IPL score.

Travis Head, Abhishek Sharma and Heinrich Klassen’s outstanding batting outcasted the previous highest total of 263 achieved by Royal Challengers Bengaluru (RCB) back in 2013. However, it was SRH co-owner Kavya Maran’s joyous dance and reactions that grabbed more limelight and have been going viral.

Kavya, who manages the team and is often spotted cheering, could not contain her joy as the team performed exceptionally well.

She was ecstatic and could be seen fervently cheering from the stands. Apart from the terrific match, it is her smile and happiness that has won the hearts of fans who have now made her the new ‘national crush’.

The tag that was owned by Rashmika Mandanna and Triptii Dimri for quite some time now after the stupendous success of ‘Animal’, has now been deservingly snatched by Kavya. The gorgeous beauty is the rightful owner of the ‘national crush’ tag, thanks to her on-field presence that is making fans go weak in their knees.

Fans cannot stop trending #KavyaMaran on X while adorable memes and comments on her name.

“Her smile makes me smile 😁🧡 The original owner of ‘national crush’ tag,” commented a fan.

Another fan wrote, “Happiest person today on a planet Earth !!❤️ Kavya Maran you beauty🫶🏻”

“She is the main reason to watch the match today 😜 #KavyaMaran,” shared another fan.
