During a Big Bash League game at the Melbourne Cricket Ground, an Indian fan stole the show with a surprise proposal. He did this in the middle of being interviewed about his favourite team, making waves both on and off the field.

The crowd at the MCG, for the 23rd Big Bash League (BBL) game between the Melbourne Stars and Melbourne Renegades, experienced something surreal. The anchor on the television and the other viewers were taken aback when a man got down on one knee for his girlfriend mid-interview and asked for her hand in marriage.

Given their support for different teams, the anchor expected an entirely different outcome to the conversation. But much to his surprise, he popped the question after getting down on one knee, leaving the anchor with a smile on his face.

In the clip, the interviewer asks the man which team he cheers for. He shares that his partner is a "huge" Melbourne Renegades supporter and that he is a Melbourne Stars fan.

He abruptly turns to face his girlfriend as he's still talking, gets down on one knee, and pops the question. The woman, who is astonished, just smiles and eventually bobs her head in agreement. Her boyfriend later plants a kiss on her forehead.

This happened on January 2, 2024, during a Big Bash League game at the Melbourne Cricket Ground.
