In a heartwarming incident reported from an IPL Game, a girl took the knee to propose her boyfriend at the RCB VS CSK game to steal the limelight from the players for a few minutes. The proposal’s video is going viral on social media. In the video, a girl can be seen surprising her partner as she takes a knee and opens her ring-box to show the bling and proposes.
Fans watching the game in the comfort of their homes instinctively crossed their fingers. They silently hoped the ordeal doesn’t get cringy in case the man doesn’t accept the proposal. However, the man alleviated the concerns and said a yes to the wonderful and unique proposal.
Meanwhile, earlier on Wednesday, Royal Challengers Bangalore crushed chances of Chennai Super Kings making it into the playoffs. In the 49th game of the Tata IPL 2022, RCB batted first and put 173 on board. In response, CSK made 160/8 in its 20 over quota. For RCB, Virat Kohli & captain Faf Du Plessis gave the team a good start. Mahipal Lomror played a wise 42 off 27-inning.
CSK in its response kept losing wickets at crucial junctures and Devon Conway and Moeen Ali were the lone fighters for their team.

The cameramen at the IPL games are known to pick up some of the most unique moments happening in the stands. From picking disappointing and jubilant look on the faces of fans, to catch witty banners, to capturing expression on the faces of the family and friends of the cricketers, they do it all.
