Comedian Romesh Ranganathan joked he's spent a Sunday explaining to his wife that the man proposing to his girlfriend during Australia's match against India was not him:

His tweet came after the picture was uploaded on to Twitter with the caption: "One Indian is winning in Australia," pointing at Australia's record-breaking total of 389/4.
The proposal was broadcast on Fox Cricket as the man was seen getting down on one knee to ask his girlfriend - an Australia fan - to be his wife:
The MailOnline reported that the moment was also played on the big screen at the ground, leaving fans holding their breath to see what the outcome would be.
Luckily, the woman said yes which led to cheers from the crowd with Australia player Glenn Maxwell joining in with the applause.
Commentator Adam Gilchrist can be heard saying: "Here we go," as the man presented his girlfriend with the ring, before adding: "Please say yes."
The woman could be seen nodding to her partner and Gilchrist went on: "We've got confirmation, well done. Always a risky play isn't it? Who said there's a fierce rivalry between India and Australia?"
Not all proposals go as smoothly as this one did. Back in September a couple went viral after their romantic proposal didn't quite go to plan, as the groom-to-be ended up being booted into the water from a boat by his missus.
Footage shows an unnamed man walking gingerly along the edge of a parked boat towards his partner, who is sitting in another boat alongside.
Pulling the other vessel towards him, the bloke leans forward and pops the question. However, as they embrace - presumably after a 'yes' from his partner - the woman's boat suddenly jerks forward and whizzes off.
The huge jolt knocks the woman down, who accidentally kicks her leg out as she speeds away, clipping the man with her foot in the process.
This sends him flying into the water, while onlookers let out a shocked shriek.
The video was shared by the daughter of one of the woman's friends, who posted it on TikTok with the caption: "Proposal gone wrong." You don't say.
