Australian spinner Nathan Lyon married fiancee Emma McCarthy on Sunday, July 24. The couple exchanged vows in front of their friends, family and nearest and dearest. The 34-year-old uploaded a picture where she can be seen holding hands with her better half.
Emma looked beautiful in a beaded wedding gown. Leon, on the other hand, wore a white button-down shirt, a black tuxedo and a black bowtie.
Leone captioned the picture, “Mr & Mrs”. Afterwards, many Australian cricketers including Josh Inglis, Sean Abbott, Peter Siddle, Alex Carey, Chris Green, Mitchell Swepson and Matt Renshaw showered their congratulations on the Aussie spinner.
Liane and Emma are said to be re-engaged in 2021 after being spotted wearing a diamond ring on their wedding finger. After splitting from his ex-wife Mel Waring in 2017, Leon was in a relationship with real estate agent Emma.
Lyon recently featured in Australia’s two-match Test series against Sri Lanka. In conditions largely favorable to spin, Lyon took 11 wickets in three innings, claiming five wickets in the first innings of the opening Test.
Lyon is currently 10th in the list of highest wicket takers in Test cricket. Recently, he surpassed the legendary Kapil Dev to enter the top 10. In 110 Tests, Lyon has taken 438 wickets with 20 fives and three 10-fors.
He is Australia’s third most successful bowler after spinner Shane Warne and evergreen Glenn McGrath.
