In what will be the biggest week of his cricketing career, New Zealand hero Grant Elliott will also face great sadness: In order to play in this weekend’s Cricket World Cup, he must miss his sister’s wedding.
After a stellar performance in the New Zealand vs South Africa World Cup semi-final, one that saw the Kiwis secure their first spot in a Cricket World Cup final, Elliott must be in Melbourne on Sunday (March 29) for the big match at the MCG.
Will you be having a joint hen's/buck's night?
Unfortunately, his sister is marrying in New Zealand on Friday evening (March 27).
“My sister has a wedding on Friday and unfortunately I’ll miss her wedding,” Elliott told NineMSN.
“Can you put it in the press that I’m sorry? I saw her earlier. She was pretty happy for me. I’m going to have to give her a special gift.”
We reckon a World Cup win might do the trick, Grant!
