During the third and final T20I match between England and Pakistan in Manchester on Tuesday, spectators witnessed something beautiful on the screen. A man proposed to his girlfriend during the match, and he got the long-awaited ‘yes’ in reply. In front of more than 20,000 people in the crowd at Old Trafford, the couple in love was beautifully captured on cameras in the ninth over of the match. The man was identified as Phil and the lady as Jill by commentator David Lloyd. England And Wales Cricket Board (ECB) also tweeted, greeting the pair. “Pending decision… She said YES! Congratulations Phil and Jill!” tweeted ECB.
The video was well received by fans and was viewed more than 70,000 times within 30 minutes of posting to Instagram.
The video was supplemented by David Lloyd’s commentary and the broadcaster’s “Decision Pending” image when the incident took place.
“Hello, what’s happening here? Oh, not another, not another. Also on the big screen… Jill and Phill, decision pending… and here she said YES…,” David Lloyd told the moment during his comment.
In cricket, England won the third T20I against Pakistan and took the 3-match series 2-1.
Jason Roy played for the England team with 64 runs from just 36 balls in the pursuit of 155 runs.
Pakistan batted first and put up a decent total of 154 runs with wicketkeeper Mohammed Rizwan (76) as the side’s top scorer.
Pakistan was dominated by England throughout the tour, first at the One Day Internationals where the hosts won the series 3-0 with an all-new and inexperienced squad and later when the senior team did the job in the T20I series.
