England cricketer Sam Billings, on Saturday, November 20, got engaged to his long-term girlfriend Sarah Cantlay. Born and brought up in England, Cantlay is a tennis player, who has won numerous awards in her career. She is also a graduate with a major in psychology.
Billings, on the other hand, is a Three Lions’ national cricket player for the last six and half years after making his debut way back in 2015. The 30-year-old recently came back from playing in the T20 World Cup 2021 in the United Arab Emirates and Oman.
As far as his engagement with Sarah is concerned, he showered love on her on social media. Billings uploaded three pictures where Sarah can be seen wearing the engagement ring. He captioned the pictures and wrote, “Mrs B to be! Luckiest man in the world.”

The cricketing fraternity also wished Billings on the auspicious occasion. Pat Cummins, Ben Cutting, Peter Siddle, Tymal Mills and many others lauded the couple on the happy development.
Cummins replied to the couple and wrote, “Congrats guys, great news! !”. Cutting replied to them and wrote, “Yes Bilbo! Congrats!!” Siddle replied to them and wrote, “Congrats braz.” Mills took to Twitter and wrote, “Yes guys!! Congrats”
Cummins recently was a part of the Australian team that won the T20 WC, beating New Zealand by eight wickets in the final. Mills, in the meantime, was ruled out of the tournament due to an injury. In the four matches he played, the pacer picked up seven wickets at an economy rate of eight.
As far as Billings is concerned, he didn’t have much to do in the tournament. He didn’t bat in the warm-up match against India following which he scored an unbeaten 27 against New Zealand at the Tolerance Oval. In the semi-final, he didn’t get to bat as the Brits lost only four wickets.
Billings has played 25 ODIs and 33 T20Is, scoring 607 and 417 runs respectively with one century and six half-centuries. Over the last couple of years, he has been in and out of the team, but he has managed to stay in contention for a berth in the national side.
