The COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in a majority of sporting events across the globe cancelled to restrict the spread of the virus at a community level. The coronavirus outbreak has also affected Australian cricket’s wedding season with almost eight weddings postponed due to the strict restrictions placed by their government.
Australia wrist spinner Adam Zampa and fast bowler Andrew Tye are among the group. At the same time, Jess Jonassen, Jackson Bird, Mitchell Swepson, D’Arcy Short, Katelyn Fryett and Alister McDermott are the others. All had scheduled their weddings for April or thereabouts, forcing postponements until such a time as they can enjoy their big days as initially planned.
Some of the other players whose marriage could be affected due to the global pandemic are leading Australian cricketers, Glenn Maxwell and Pat Cummins. Maxwell got engaged to his longtime Indian origin girlfriend, Vini Raman, in the last week of February. Cummins had also announced his engagement to his girlfriend Becky Boston last month. Now due to the global pandemic, both cricketers might have to postpone their weddings until next year.
Cummins recently confirmed that he would be playing in the IPL 2020, whenever it takes place. He has been signed up by Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) for a record amount of Rs 15.5 crore. Maxwell also has gone for big money this season. The dashing all-rounder was bought by Kings XI Punjab, a franchise he has represented previously, for a sum of Rs 12 crore.
