Australian all-rounder Marcus Stoinis was recently spotted vacationing in New York, USA with his wife Stephanie Muller when a street photographer David Guerrero asked the couple to pose for a few pictures. With cricket still growing in popularity in the States, the photographer didn’t recognise Stoinis and asked him and his wife about where they are from.
After Stoinis responded to the question, David Guerrero proceeded to take pictures, first of the couple and then a few individual shots of the all-rounder and his wife. After sharing the video on August 4, the post went viral and then five days on August 9, Guerrero shared a few more pictures and tagged Marcus Stoinis with a caption, “This is why I enjoy what I do, you never know who you’ll come across.”

Marcus Stoinis has been in the USA for the inaugural season of Major League Cricket, where he played for the San Francisco Unicorns. The Satya Nadella-franchise finished fifth on the table with two wins from five games. Indicated by the team’s performance, Stoinis had an underwhelming season with 74 runs while picking up two wickets.
But talking about international cricket, Marcus Stoinis was part of Australia's preliminary 18-man World Cup squad. Stoinis joins the likes of Cameron Green, Aaron Hardie, Mitchell Marsh, Glenn Maxwell and Tanveer Sangha as one of the all-rounders.
