Whoever was in charge of the television graphics played along with a “decision pending” banner, before announcing “she said yes!”
“That’s the biggest cheer of the day,” said the commentator.
Important pairings followed on the pitch for England, who chased down the target of 155 with just two balls remaining to clinch a series victory.
What a game!
You couldn't script a game much better, both teams were in it until the end.
