For the unversed, both Brunt and Sciver were part of the 2017 ODI World Cup-winning team, who won the championship under the leadership of Knight. The duo also featured together in the 2022 ODI World Cup, in New Zealand, where England bounced back emphatically after a forgettable start to end as the runners-up.

The 29-year-old all-rounder Sciver announced her engagement with Brunt in October 2019. However, the Covid-19 pandemic struck and delayed their wedding before they finally tied the knot this weekend. 

Sciver-Brunt, thus, also became the third renowned pair of an international team to get married following the South Africa pair Dane van Niekerk–Marizanne Kapp and New Zealand's Lea Tahuhu–Amy Satterthwaite
