Sky Sports commentator David Lloyd has seen it all during his cricket broadcasting career. 

From describing Ashes victories to One-Day Finals, there isn't much that Lloyd hasn't seen in the game.

During England's recent One-Day International win over India at Lord's, Lloyd found himself commentating a Marriage proposal from two spectators in the crowd.

As attention turned away from events on the field, Charan Gill popped the all-important question to his partner, Pavan Bains.

Sky then used the caption "Decision Pending" as Charan got down on one knee to propose to Pavan.

After she agreed, the couple hugged, and the caption then changed to "She said 'YES!'"

The action was captured on the big screen at the West London ground before the happy couple celebrated their engagement in the Sky box.


England's victory at Lord's tied the series at one apiece heading into the third ODI, which is to be played at Headingley on Tuesday.

Joe Root smashed an excellent 113 on a sun-kissed Saturday afternoon in the capital, while David Willey struck an unbeaten 50 for Eoin Morgan's side, as they posted a total of 322-7 from their 50 overs.

India never got close to their target set by the hosts, and in reply, the tourists could only make 236, as they were bowled out, with Liam Plunkett picking up four wickets.

England triumphed by 86 runs, with all eyes now on Leeds, heading into Tuesday's clash. 


After the win, captain Morgan said: "The two openers got us off to a great start again. We can't really take for granted the work that they do.

"They're against a good attack and they're taking advantage of the form that they're in. The biggest thing for me today was the skill level and our basics were a lot higher than the previous game. We bounced back beautifully.

"It's important we take that to Leeds and start again. India will come back hard at us."
