WATCH: A pool deck proposal during the first Ashes Test at Gabba


On Day 2 of the first Ashes Test at the Gabba, Michael Langridge and his girlfriend, now fiancee, Tori Roebuck were enjoying the cricket from the pool deck.

Langridge decided the setting as an ideal time to bend the knee and pop the question in front of the thousands in attendance.

Wearing only a pair of green and gold budgie smugglers, it sounds interesting that where was he hiding the ring?

Of course, nothing screams Australian romance like being soaking wet in a pair of speedos at the cricket. Thankfully for the pretty lady the answer was ‘yes’ and the boy wasn’t left hanging on the side of the pool.

Here’s the video:

Meanwhile, on the field, the Aussie skipper Steve Smith led a rescue mission to revive Australia’s fortunes after a top-order batting collapse in the first innings against England.

The home sides hopes rested on Smith to mount a fighting rearguard after the loss of four wickets in a faltering chase after England’s first innings of 302.

At the close on the second day, Australia were 165 for four and trailing by 137 runs, with Smith unbeaten on 64 and Shaun Marsh not out 44.
