With star players KL Rahul and Manish Pandey on international duty, the Karnataka Premier League has failed to attract a lot of viewership. But, Friday was a different day altogether for the tournament. Belagavi Panthers' Stuart Binny scored a brilliant 87 runs off 46 balls and helped his team post 192/7 against Bengaluru Blasters. Just after Binny's knock, his wife and sports presenter Mayanti Langer, who is the covering the event for the host broadcasters, got the chance to interview her husband, on their marriage anniversary.
The picture soon went viral on the social media and the fans appreciated the couple.

This is not the first time a couple have interviewed each other on the field.
Spain and Porto goalkeeper Iker Casillas was interviewed by his girlfriend Sara Carbonero after Spain won the FIFA World Cup 2010.
Recently, New Zealand cricketer Martin Guptill was also interviewed by his wife Laura McGoldrick.
