6 famous cricketers who got married in 2018
- 2018 would have been a memorable year for these cricketers.
2018 has been an eventful cricketing year. While 2018 started with Australia thrashing England in Ashes, it ended with India thrashing them in their own backyard. We had some ludicrous performance from Virat Kohli who dominated the game this year as no batsman did for a very long time.
While Afghanistan has made giant strides in International cricket with a string of spectacular performances, Australia has plummeted to a new low after their leadership trio got caught in the sandpaper gate controversy.
However, we are not going to discuss players' performances or controversies. We are going have a light-hearted article to close this year seeing the lighter, happier and the personal side of cricketers.
The article will give a snippet of a few important cricketers who got married in 2018.
#1 Steve Smith
Smith, whose cricketing career rock-bottomed because of the ball-tampering scandal in early 2018, married his longtime love, Dani Willis, on 5th of September in a quite function at Bendooley Estate in Berrima in New South Wales.
The former Australian captain, who met Willis in 2011, proposed her in 2017. Despite all the negativity around Smith's ban because of his involvement in the sandpaper gate controversy, the pair weathered the storm and stayed away from media attention for a long time before their wedding.
#2 Liam Plunkett
Liam Plunkett missed the start of the Sri Lankan tour to marry his long-time partner Emeleah Erb on 13th October 2018. The pacer had to lose his place in the playing XI to other English fast bowlers because of his wedding.
The 33-year-old is one of the consistent performers of the English side, having taken 54 wickets at an impressive average of 23.83 since the start of 2017.
