Australian cricketer James Faulkner took to his official Twitter handle to reveal he’s in a same-sex relationship.

In a post to his 726K followers, Faulkner shared a picture of himself dining out with his mother Roslyn Carol and boyfriend of five years Robert Jubb on his 29th birthday.

“Birthday dinner with the boyfriend @robjubb and my mother roslyn_carol_faulkner #togetherfor5years,” he wrote the caption.

While some of his contemporaries including David Warner, Liam Livingstone and Jofra Archer sent across birthday wishes, former Australian fast bowler Shaun Tait wrote: “Great courage mate, bet u feel better. Happy birthday.”

Faulkner has represented Australia in 69 One-Day Internationals and 24 T20 Internationals, besides having featured in as many as 60 Indian Premier League games.

He is not the only cricketer to be in a same-sex relationship.

Alex Blackwell and Lynsey Askew, Amy Satterthwaite and Lea Tahuhu, Dane van Niekerk and Marizanne Kapp, Megan Schutt and Jess Holyoake, and Jess Jonassen and Sarah Wearn are some of the other cricketers to have done the same.
