In the midst of cricket action between England Women and Sri Lanka Women at County Ground, Northampton, a heartwarming moment stole the spotlight as an unexpected proposal that left spectators and players alike beaming with joy.

England Women, after winning the toss, elected to bowl first in the second ODI, putting Sri Lanka Women in a bad position. Chamari Athapaththu’s impressive 34-run contribution proved insufficient as the Sri Lankan innings spiraled into disarray, with seven batters failing to reach double figures, four of whom were dismissed for ducks.

The English bowlers were on fire, with Charlotte Dean and Alice Davidson Richards taking two wickets each, while Kate Cross, Lauren Filer, and Sarah Glenn added one each to their tally.

Amidst this thrilling cricket action, a man named Mayank knelt down and proposed to his beloved, Dory. It was a moment of pure romance and joy, witnessed by former England pacer Steven Finn, who acted as the mediator for the enchanting proposal.

The heartwarming scene even caught the attention of former Australian captain Ricky Ponting, who could not help but react to the touching moment.

Sri Lanka had previously secured the T20I series with a 2-1 victory. However, their fortunes took a turn in the ODI series, with England winning the first match by seven wickets and dominating the second ODI as well, however, match was washed out due to rain.

In the end, as England continued to assert their dominance on the field, the beautiful moment grabbed everyone’s attention on and off the field. The third and last game of the series will be played on September 14 at Grace Road, Leicestershire, with England leading 1-0.
