Former England cricketer Mark Ramprakash has been granted a ‘quickie’ divorce from wife Valdana today.
Despite his six year affair with a Welsh single mother during their marriage, the couple were given a divorce on the ground of Vandana’s ‘unreasonable behaviour’.
District Judge Martin Berry granted a decree nisi in central London today, with the couple agreeing to share custody of their two daughters.

The couple, who married in 1993 and have two children, initially separated in December 2007 after trying to repair their marriage following news of the sportsman’s infidelities.
Despite repeated attempts to repair their marriage, the Surrey batsman, 40, admitted they had not lived together for the past six months.
Court papers said the marriage had ‘broken down irretrievably’ and Mrs Ramprakash had ‘behaved in such a way that the petitioner cannot reasonably be expected to live with the respondent’.
Valdana had admitted her unreasonable behaviour after being served divorce papers in May, but objected paying legal costs.
