The 44-second-video shows uploaded on Twitter by a username Lakshmi Narayana B S shows two boys running as fast as they can while an excited commentator discusses the likely outcome of the ongoing game on the ground in fluent Sanskrit. This setting might mislead one into believing that some ritual is underway but the two men are players trying to score a quick run during a cricket match.

While we are accustomed to listening to cricket commentaries in English and Hindi, and regional languages in some cases, hearing the running commentary in Sanskrit is definitely a novel concept and the fluency have stunned netizens. The video has so far garnered more than 243,000 views and over 11,000 likes as of now.

Sanskrit is almost 5,000 years and is one of the oldest languages known in the world. Gradually, it is losing its importance. However, this viral video has once again made us realize its importance and keep them connected in to the tradition.
