Though his knock of 30 runs went in vain and his team lost the Asia Cup match against India on August 31, 2022, it was a memorable evening for Hong Kong batter Kinchit Shah.
Kinchit Shah, who usually handles the family diamond business, sparkled in a losing cause against India, studding an innings of 30 with two fours and a six in the T20 Asia Cup.
The Mumbai-born vice-captain of the Hong Kong team, who proposed to his girlfriend after the match in Dubai on Wednesday, is part of an eclectic mix of pizza delivery men and university students representing Hong Kong against Asia’s cricket giants in the UAE this week.
After the match, Kinchit Shah was seen going up to the stands at the Dubai International Stadium and proposing to his girlfriend.
Hong Kong’s next match is against Pakistan on Friday, September 2, 2022.
