It’s the 14th of February today and the world is celebrating Valentine’s Day with their life partners. However, the Indian cricketers are gearing up for the series against New Zealand in a three-day warm-up match against the New Zealand XI.

The Men in Blue had kicked off their tour of New Zealand with a 5-0 whitewash win in the T20I series but, the Kiwis bounced back in style in the 50-overs format as they upset the visitors 3-0 despite losing their star players to injury.

Talking about Valentine’s Day, all the top cricketers of the world have a huge fan following on social media and they love to share their photographs with their fans. While a majority of their pictures are related to the world of cricket, they even share photos with their spouses and these images instantly go viral across the internet.

On the occasion of 14th February, let us have a look at the top five cricket couples of the world at the moment:

The South African wicket-keeper batsman, AB de Villiers is one of the most loved cricketers of all time because of his incredible batting skills. Known as Mr.360, de Villiers is known for his ability to strike the ball all around the park. Also, he holds the record for the fastest ODI hundred of all time.

Although he is one of the fittest cricketers on the planet, De Villiers decided to end his international cricket early. He cited that he does not have much fuel left in him and he also wants to spend more time with his family now.

De Villiers got hitched with Danielle Swart in 2013 while the right-handed batsman had proposed her at Taj Mahal in 2012. The couple has two sons named Abraham and John Richard. They’ve known each other for twice as long – as they met while the cricketer was still an exciting youngster trying to break into the Proteas squad.
