Both sportswomen play in the Women’s National Cricket League and announced the news this week via Instagram.

“On the 12th of April 2019 I got to marry the girl of my dreams," Hancock wrote. "The day was filled with lots of laughter, joy and of course love. I would like to thank everyone for making the day what is was. We love all of our family and friends and am so grateful to have you all in our lives. Here’s to our next chapter xx.”

Jensen added: “Thank you to everyone who came up to the 'Sunshine' Coast for our special day it was amazing to see all of our loved ones whilst we pledged our love for one another!”

She also posted pictures of the couple's honeymoon in Hanmer Springs, Kaiteriteri and Abel Tasman.

The newlyweds became the fourth pair of women's cricketers to exchange vows in the past four years, with New Zealand's Amy Satterthwaite and Lea Tahuhu tying the knot in 2017.

Jensen has played eight ODIs and 20 Twenty20 internationals for the national side.
