The second ODI between Australia and India at the SCG was a prominent game, not just from a cricketing perspective. The game saw Australia scoring a mammoth 389/4 which ensured that they won both the game and the series.
However, another incident that went viral in the game was the love story of an Indian fan and an Australian girl. The guy, in an Indian jersey, proposed to the blushing lady in the middle of a cheering crowd and she gleefully said yes. The video of the incident can be seen here:
