Former Australian cricketer Stuart MacGill has ended his 14-year-old marriage with actor Rachel Friend and the couple reportedly have put their four-bedroom Neutral Bay home here up for sale.

"We're still mates, it is amicable," Friend was quoted as saying in the Australian media. She also added that their main focus is on their two children.

Friend was impressed with MacGill, the director of communications agency Media Friendly, and thought he wasn't a stereotypical cricketer.

MacGill, who is now a sports commentator, was recently photographed in a romantic tryst with a mystery brunette. They were spotted kissing publicly in Sydney's eastern suburbs last week, before dining at Double Bay restaurant Mrs Sippy. After the meal, they were seen checking into the Sheraton at the Park Hotel.
