Cricketers Whose Wives Also Played International Cricket, One Pair Even Made The Team Win The World Cup. Ever heard of cricketer couples where both husband and wife are international players? Well, buckle up, because some of these couples are TOTAL BOSSES!

We’re talking about couples who helped their teams WIN WORLD CUPS! Can you believe it? Let’s check out a few of these power couples:

They got married in 2016 and have been instrumental in Australia winning both the Women’s Cricket World Cup and the T20 World Cup!

2. Roger Prideaux & Ruth Prideaux (England):

Roger might have only played 3 Tests for England, but his wife Ruth’s career lasted way longer. From 1957 to 1963, Ruth played 11 Test matches for England, scoring over 400 runs! Not too shabby, eh?

3. Richard Hadlee & Karen Hadlee (New Zealand):

Sir Richard Hadlee – need we say more? This legend was part of the famous “bowling quartet” that dominated cricket in the 70s and 80s. His wife Karen even played a one-day international for New Zealand in 1978!

4. Guy de Alwis & Rasanjali Chandima Silva (Sri Lanka):

Guy, who played 11 Tests and 31 ODIs for Sri Lanka, married Rasanjali. She represented Sri Lanka in 1 test and 22 ODIs between 1997 and 2000. Talk about a cricketing family!

5. Ruturaj Gaikwad & Utkarsh (India):

This young couple might be the next power duo on this list! Ruturaj has already played for India in ODIs and T20s, and his wife Utkarsh is a domestic cricketer who bowls medium pace for Maharashtra. Maybe we’ll see her in the Indian team soon?
