Australian cricketer James Faulkner reveals he is gay

Sydney, April 29: Australian cricketer James Faulkner on Monday (April 29) decided to come out of closet to announce that he is in a same sex relationship. Faulkner chose the occasion of his 29th birthday to make his relationship status public.

"Birthday dinner with the boyfriend @robjubbsta and my mother @roslyn_carol_faulkner#togetherfor5years," read a caption of Faulkner's Instagram post.

England's Steven Davies was the first international cricketer to come out open as gay when he made the revelation in an interview in 2011.
