In a matter of few days, Malayalam actress Priya Prakash Varrier has become a sensation on the internet since a trailer of her upcoming movie ‘Oru Aadar Love’ went viral.

While her facial expressions in the song ‘Manikya Malaraya Poovi’ from the upcoming movie mesmerised many in India, Priya found an unexpected fan in South African cricketer Lungi Ngidi, who too seems to be floored by her wink.

Ngidi shared a video meme made by a fan, which shows a very young looking South African cricketer smiling on the field in reaction to Priya’s viral wink.

The 21-year-old Ngidi recently made his Test debut against India at Centurion, and it was in the second innings of his maiden Test when the right-arm pacer made his mark.

In a devastating bowling spell in which he also removed the Indian cricket team captain Virat Kohli, he claimed six for 39 to hand South Africa a series win, alongside a comprehensive Test match win at Centurion.

The lanky right-arm pacer has been picked by the Chennai Super Kings (CSK) for the upcoming edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2018, starting April 7. The final will be played on May 27 at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai.
