The Australian all-rounder also shared the picture of her wedding ceremony, which is said to have taken place in Hawaii, earlier this month. The Australian bowler took to social media to make this announcement on Friday (April 14).
The 30-year-old took to social media and captioned the post, “SURPRISE!! 3rd time lucky - finally married my best friend. April 6th will always have a special place in my heart.”
Several cricketers also congratulated the newlywed couple after the pictures went viral. Among the many were Indian batter Jemimah Rodrigues, Shafali Verma, Alice Capsey, Marizanne Kapp.
