Love is in the air for two South African women cricketers as they have now become life partners from just teammates.

On Saturday, Dane van Niekerk, the captain of South African women cricket team, got married to her teammate Marizanne Kapp who is fast bowling all-rounder. They both made their international debut in the 2009 Women’s World Cup within a gap of just 2 days.

Dane van Niekerk played her first international match against West Indies on March 9 while on March 10, Marizanne Kapp made her debut against the Australian side. Before these two, New Zealand women cricketers Amy Satterthwaite and Lea Tahuhu got married last year.

The announcement regarding their wedding was made by Marizanne Kapp on her Instagram account and it is being said that most of the South African women cricketers graced the event.

These two are very important players of their side and have proved their talent with both bat and ball in all the formats. Together they both have played in 82 ODIs and 56 T20Is and they both are the first two girls who joined the boy’s cricket academy.

We wish them a very happy married life!
