The pair announced their split two weeks ago but the Irishwoman learnt of the situation when the batsman accidentally sent a text to her saying that he wanted to end things. It is believed that the message was meant for his lawyer. Before this the 34-year-old had made signals that he wanted to save their relationship.
Friends of the 29-year-old have accused the cricketer of abandoning his family to tour and hang out with his friends. One of these ‘unnamed friends’ said: “He is only interested in going out with his friends and partying. He is obsessed with the limelight and would go to the opening of an envelope. He finds her boring and thinks she is a nag when she asks him to spend time with his family.”
There are even some who have thought the retired cricketer may have started seeing someone else: “She has been thinking about this, because the divorce came so quickly. She doesn’t know for sure if there is another woman, but if there is, she will have a lot to say to her,” said a friend.
