The advent of novel coronavirus has not only bought the world to a standstill but has also effected lives personally. 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.
Lizelle Lee shares a four and half year partnership with fiance
Lee has shared many partnerships with her teammates for the national team. But this one is quite special. She has been with her finace 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.
This is the longest time the opener has spent at home in the last three years. The original schedule would have had Lee finishing the home series against Australia, which consisted of three One-Day Internationals and as many T20Is. A tour which the right-hander was particularly relishing given the confidence within the national side, the report added.
South Africa women’s team in great space
Lee believes the South Africa women’s team is in great space as they have no fear of facing any opposition. Though South Africa failed to reach the final of the Women’s T20 World Cup they delivered a decent performance.
“The team is in a great space at the moment. We don’t fear any opposition. We want to play the best in the world, and we want to beat them and ultimately show that we are a team to be reckoned with,” Lee said.
