WBBL season 5 is getting bigger and popular than expected. And it couldn’t get better when the Australian leg-spinner Amanda Jade-Wellington got a proposal from her boyfriend after Adelaide Strikers won over Melbourne Renegades on Saturday.
Amanda Jade-Wellington’s boyfriend surprised her while she was celebrating the win with her teammates. Her boyfriend went down on his knees to propose her for marriage, and she accepted it. Her teammates clapped and rejoiced the moment to make it even more memorable for her.
So, this just happened!!! 😃

Wellington said – she had no idea what was going on when Tayler McKechnie first appeared during the team celebration.
Wellington said – “When I saw him on the field, I just thought: ‘Get off, we’re trying to take a team photo’. I had no idea what was really happening, but I’m so happy, I’m still shaking.”
McKechnie had proposed to Wellington using a Pokemon card with the words – “Will you marry me?” written on it, with the ring sitting in a ‘poke ball’.
Wellington had played 1 Test, 12 ODIs and 8 T20 Internationals for Australia. To date, she has taken 27 international wickets.
