Hong Kong produced a spirited display even as they were beaten by India by 40 runs in the Asia Cup on Wednesday. And while the result may have been disappointing, it was a memorable night for Hong Kong batsman Kunchat Shah. After the match, Knucht went to the stands at the Dubai International Stadium to surprise his girlfriend and then got down on one knee and popped the question. She looked completely shocked by the proposal and was heard repeatedly saying “I can’t believe it” as Kunchit waited patiently, a big smile on her face.
Finally, she went on to say “absolutely” and he went to put a ring on her before the happy couple embraced each other.

The video and photos of their proposal went viral on social media, with fans praising the touching moment.
In the match, a brilliant 28-ball 62* from the side Surya Kumar Yadav And an unbeaten 59 off 44 balls took India to 192/2 when Hong Kong put them in to bat.
After a slow start, India set for a sub-par toll, but Surya Kumar went wild at the death to turn the innings around. He hit four fours and six sixes – four of which came in the last over.
Hong Kong showed intent with the bat in the powerplay, but once India’s spinners came on, they fizzled out.
Babar Hayat scored 41 runs off 35 balls and Kunchit Shah scored 20 runs off 28 balls.
They eventually finished with 152/5.
Hong Kong still have slim hopes of making it to the Super 4 stage of the Asia Cup but will need to beat Pakistan in their final Group A match to do so.
