In the heat of battle on the field, things can often get tense and testy for players and spectators alike.
But during the second ODI between Australian and India, a couple in the crowd gave a reminder that love conquers all as an Indian fan proposed to an Aussie fan in a sweet moment.
Even better, she said yes.

The young lady covered her face as she accepted the ring from her now fiance.
“Well, here we go,” Adam Gilchrist said in commentary. “Please say yes, please say yes.
“It’s always a risky play isn’t it,” he added. “Who said there’s a fierce rivalry between Australia and India.”
The pair played up to the crowd, waving and fist pumping for the cheering spectators.
Even Glenn Maxwell was clapping from the field.
Shane Warne was a bit more pessimistic about the event.
“I reckon he said ‘look, even if you don’t want to, say yes on camera and then we can walk off and you can throw it back at me if you want but just don’t let me down on live TV’,” he laughed.
Mark Howard added: “Congratulations to the happy couple”.

And the commentators weren’t the only ones with social media falling for the sweet moment.
ABC sports reporter Chloe Hart tweeted: “What a proposal. Maxwells smile was priceless too”.
Journalist Chloe-Amanda Bailey joked: “WHAT? That is my dream. Someone just propose to me in the stands while India plays Australia in an ODI. Is that too much to ask?” before adding “Between you and me, please no one ever propose to me in public”.

Proposing at the cricket.
A pointless ODI at that.
I'd be furious
Could have at least done it at a Test match
Congratulations to the happy couple.
On the field, the match was in the balance with India chasing 390 to win after a stunning performance from Australia, led by Steve Smith’s 100 off 62 balls.
