David Miller Postpones Wedding for $150,000 BPL Payout

David Miller Postpones Wedding for $150,000 BPL Payout

Legendary Pakistani fast bowler Wasim Akram has revealed a sensational claim that South African all-rounder David Miller postponed his wedding to play the final three matches of the Bangladesh Premier League (BPL) 2024 for Fortune Barishal. Akram stated that Miller was offered a hefty sum of $150,000 (approximately Rs 1.24 crore) to participate in the crucial matches, which ultimately led Barishal to their maiden BPL title.

Miller, who recently tied the knot with his longtime girlfriend Camilla Harris in a lavish ceremony in Cape Town, reportedly made the decision to prioritize his professional commitments over his personal life. Akram disclosed this information during A Sports’ ‘The Pavillion’ show on March 12, following a match between Peshawar Zalmi and Karachi Kings in the Pakistan Super League (PSL).

“I just found out today because we were discussing who won the BPL as we were not following because of the PSL. David Miller was offered $150,000 to play three matches. He postponed his wedding,” Akram said.

Akram’s revelation has sparked a buzz in the cricketing world, highlighting the financial incentives and sacrifices that players make to excel in their careers. Miller’s decision to delay his wedding for the sake of his team’s success is a testament to his dedication and commitment to the sport.

In a separate incident, Akram criticized Pakistan batter Abdullah Shafique for his muted celebration after taking a catch to dismiss Imad Wasim during the PSL 2024 match between Lahore Qalandars and Islamabad United. Shafique’s gesture, which involved putting his finger over his mouth, was interpreted by Akram as an attempt to silence his critics.

“No doubt, great catch but who is responsible for dropping 36 catches in Australia’s Test series? Who will answer for that? Abdullah should work in drama industry rather than cricket,” Akram said on A Sports.

Akram’s comments reflect his belief that players should focus on their performances rather than engaging in unnecessary theatrics. He emphasized the importance of accountability and responsibility in the game of cricket.

Meanwhile, the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) is reportedly considering foreign coaches from the PSL to potentially lead the national team until next year’s ICC Champions Trophy. With time running out and limited options available, the PCB is exploring the possibility of appointing a foreign coach to guide the team in the upcoming tournaments.

David Miller Marries Longtime Girlfriend Camilla Harris in Cape Town

South African cricket star David Miller and his longtime girlfriend, Camilla Harris, tied the knot in a picturesque ceremony in Cape Town on Sunday. The explosive batter, who represents Gujarat Titans in the Indian Premier League (IPL), and Camilla shared heartwarming pictures and videos of their special day on social media.

The intimate event was attended by close friends and family, including several of Miller’s teammates like Aiden Markram, Quinton De Kock, and Mark Boucher. Camilla, a professional polo player, was seen cheering for Miller during his stint with GT in the IPL 2023 season.

Meanwhile, Australian wicketkeeper-batter Matthew Wade will miss Gujarat Titans’ first match of the upcoming IPL 2024 to participate in the Sheffield Shield final for Tasmania. The Sheffield Shield final will take place from March 21st to 25th, and Wade will miss GT’s first game against Mumbai Indians on March 25.

However, his presence in GT’s second game against Chennai Super Kings on March 27 “could be tight,” according to ESPNcricinfo. GT’s third game of the tournament will take place on March 31 against Sunrisers Hyderabad.

Tasmania head coach Jeff Vaughan confirmed that Wade has spoken to GT, and the IPL franchise has allowed him to take part in the Sheffield Shield final. “He’s spoken with his IPL franchise and they’re happy to allow him to stay here, which probably equates to him potentially missing their first game. We feel very fortunate to have someone of Matt’s ilk coming back into our group, and his experience and his performances at the back end of our season,” Vaughan said.
