Warne confirms Hurley engagement

Former Australia legspinner Shane Warne has confirmed that he and British actress Elizabeth Hurley are engaged.

Speaking after a round of golf at the Dunhill Links Championship pro-am in Scotland on Saturday, Warne said: “Yes, I can confirm we are engaged.”

British newspapers showed pictures of Hurley wearing a large engagement ring while she watched Warne playing at the Kingsbarns club in east Scotland.

The couple have been together for 10 months, with Hurley making regular appearances at cricket grounds around Indian cheering on Warne in the Indian Premier League.

Warne retired from international cricket in 2007 but played four seasons with the Rajasthan Royals in the lucrative IPL before calling it quits at the end of the 2011 IPL season.

However he recently admitted that he may return to action in the Big Bash – Australia’s newly-launched Twenty20 competition.

Hurley dated actor Hugh Grant for more than a decade and was previously married to Indian businessman Arun Nayar.
