The novel coronavirus pandemic has effected a lot of personal life. A day after reports of South Africa women cricketer Lizelle Lee delaying her marriage with fiance Tanja Cronje emerged, there are talks about Australia off-spinner Adam Zampa and several other cricketers delaying their respective marriages.
It is a forced decision most cricketers have to take keeping in mind the situation across the globe. The toll of positive cases have crossed 1,110,000 mark, causing death to over 59,000 people while 228,990 patients have recovered.
Adam Zampa, D’Arcy among cricketers to delay marriage
The list includes their limited-overs spinner Adam Zampa, Test pacer Jackson Bird, D’Arcy Short, uncapped Mitchell Swepson, Alister McDermott, Andrew Tye, Jess Jonassen and Katelyn Fryett. Given the schedule and weather conditions, the Aussie cricketers mostly get married in April but this will not be the case this time, according to reports.
Australia has imposed a 90-day lockdown. It can however be increased if the coronavirus transmission is not controlled. In case the lockdown extends, the T20 World Cup later this year, might also get effected.
Details on Lizelle Lee marriage postponed
South Africa women’s team cricketer Lizelle Lee will have to put her marriage on hold indefinitely due to the widespread of the fatal virus.
Lee was supposed to get married on April 10. But with South Africa under a 21-day lockdown period it seems unlikely. April 10th will mark the 15th day of the lockdown in the country and thus she will have to wait a bit longer.
Lee has shared many partnerships with her teammates for the national team. But this one is quite special. She has been with her fiance Tanja Cronje for four and a half years. Her Instagram profile is filled with their pictures accompanied by their dog.
The 28-year-old wicketkeeper is currently at her parent’s place in the farming town of Ermelo, located in the Mpumalanga province. She has been completing a 2000-piece puzzle to keep herself busy, according to a report in India Today.
