A couple got sidelined at their own wedding reception as guests erupted in celebration following a nail-biting finish to the IPL 2019 final match between Mumbai Indians and Chennai Super Kings on Sunday, May 12.
An over two-minute long video shared on Twitter shows people watching the last moments of the IPL final match on a big screen put up near the wedding stage.
With CSK requiring two runs from the last ball to lift their third IPL title, Lasith Malinga bowls a Yorker- length delivery to clinch the IPL final for Mumbai Indians.
Guests at the wedding reception were so engrossed in the tense finish that they forgot the bride and groom and erupted in celebration.
“This is from one of the wedding receptions. Cricket took the centre stage. Check out the celebrations in the end.
