In a video going viral on social media sites, guests attending a wedding on May 13, didn’t have to worry about watching the IPL final as the match was streamed live on to a big screen at the wedding reception. It also meant that as the match went down to the wire, all the guests were focussed on watching the match and not on the newlyweds.
The footage shows guests enjoying the final overs of the thrilling game on a giant screen set up in the wedding venue. And as a superb slow ball by Lasith Malinga helped MI win the match by 1 run, and their fourth title, the guests cheered.
This is from one of the wedding receptions. Cricket took the centre stage. Check out the celebrations in the end.

The guests are seen jumping on their seats in jubilation, dancing and whistling, and even taking selfies with the screen in the background. The wedding band also struck up a tune to celebrate the result.
The footage was shared on Twitter by a user who said it was received as a WhatsApp forward. It wasn’t clear where the video was recorded, but given the celebration over Mumbai’s victory, many assumed it was shot in the financial capital. The video was widely shared and even got a thumbs up from Mumbai Indians’ official handle.
