The whole crowd cheered as all the cameras turned to the couple, the commentator David Lloyd also joined in on the moment as he narrated the moment to the live TV.
The big screen flashes “Decision pending” as the man, later identified as Phil, went down on one knee, making his lifetime commitment. The screen soon shows “SHE SAID YES!” as the woman with the brightest emotion accepts the ring.

Some reactions people have to this sweet and heartwarming moment.
In November last year too, cricket fans witnessed an epic proposal uniting two countries playing against each other. During the 2nd ODI between India and Australia at the Sydney cricket ground, a man wearing an Indian jersey, went down on one knee while holding a ring to propose to his partner sporting an Australian jersey. The couple became an internet sensation overnight.
