(Web Desk) – Those watching England s T20 International match against Pakistan were treated to a romantic surprise on July 20, as one spectator proposed to his girlfriend in the stands at Old Trafford Cricket Ground.

Footage of the man popping the question quickly went viral online.

Thankfully she said yes, plucking the ring from the box and placing it on her own finger as cameras captured her nodding and mouthing "I love you" to her groom-to-be.

Phil who is self-employed, described the atmosphere at the cricket after the proposal as "crazy". He said: "The crowd was buzzing, they were shouting Phil and Jill for about 30 seconds.

But the best reaction of all came from the man sitting beside Jill, a complete stranger to them both, who looked so thrilled.

"He really made that special moment even better with his reaction," Phil recalls. "He was friendly and polite. We never met him before, but he was a good guy."
