Dipen Mandaliya moved to Melbourne around two years ago. It is here that he met his girlfriend Rosilie Wimbush. In November this year, Mandaliya decided to take the plunge, and proposed to his girlfriend at the stadium during the 2nd ODI India-Australia match, making the couple an internet sensation overnight.

Mandaliya, who had rented a tiny apartment in Melbourne, received a mail one day addressed to the previous occupant of the house –Wimbush. “And that is how we met! Coffees turned to drinks and drinks to dinners,” Mandaliya wrote in an Instagram post.

For the couple, cricket became an important part of their blossoming relationship. “Despite having opposing loyalties, it brought us together. Life did have something more in store for us,” Mandaliya, who originally hails from Bengaluru, wrote.
