Many cricketers have married in recent years, beginning a new chapter in their lives with their life partners. We’re all looking for that special someone with whom we can spend the rest of our lives. Finding one’s better half is, nevertheless, a difficult task. When it comes to finding the right life partner, Indian cricketers have also run into difficulties.
Cricketers are people, too, and their personal lives aren’t always perfect. Some people have issues with their families, while others have issues with their relationships.
There have been several celebrities who have divorced once and then found love again.
Dinesh Karthik is a wicket-keeper batsman from Chennai. At the tender age of 21, Karthik married his childhood friend Nikita (then Nikita Vanjara) in 2007. Because both families knew each other, they married young. The wedding lasted over a five-year period. A few years later, Nikita was said to be having an affair with another Indian cricketer. Karthik divorced her in 2012 as a result of this situation. Nikita later married the Indian cricketer. Karthik fell in love with Dipika Pallikal shortly after his divorce. Karthik met Dipika Pallikal in a sports facility a year after his divorce when they were both doing fitness lessons with the same teacher. Dipika is an Arjuna Award-winning professional squash player from India. During an overseas trip to London, Karthik proposed to Dipika. They finally tied the knot in 2015.
Srinath, who is currently a member of the ICC’s elite team of match referees, represented India in four world cups between 1992 and 2003. In these four editions, he got 44 wickets. Srinath is most known for his hat trick in his first-class debut, but he also married twice. In 1999, the speedster married Jyothsna. The marriage, however, did not last. The marriage ended in a divorce that was jointly agreed upon. Srinath married Madhavi Patravali, a journalist, in 2007. Madhavi is a copy editor for an English daily newspaper. The wedding was a fairly intimate affair, with just close relatives and friends in attendance.
Yograj Singh is the father of Yuvraj Singh, a well-known Indian all-rounder. Yograj married Shabnam, the daughter of a Muslim merchant, despite coming from a Sikh farming family. They are Yuvraj Singh’s biological parents. Shabnam’s father was a businessman who practiced Islam. Their marriage didn’t survive long because of their stark differences in life choices. Yograj wanted Shabnam to stay at home, but Shabnam desired independence. This caused a schism amongst them. Yograj divorced Shabnam and married Satveer Kaur in the end.
Azharuddin, who is known for his prolific hitting style, is one of India’s most successful leaders. Azhar married for the first time in 1987 to Naureen, a Hyderabad-based 16-year-old girl. Naureen, who was known for her simplicity, shied away from the spotlight. Mohammad Asaduddin and Mohammad Ayazuddin were Azhar’s sons from his marriage to Naureen. However, the marriage only lasted 9 years. Azhar filed for divorce in 1996 and married his then-girlfriend, actress, and model Sangeeta Bijlani. This marriage, however, did not endure. In 2010, they divorced.
On his birthday, Vinod Kambli became the first guy in cricket history to make a century in one-day internationals. He is also the only cricketer to score three successive test hundreds in three innings, each against a different country. Kambli married Noella Lewis, a receptionist at a hotel in Pune, in 1998. Their marriage, however, did not last long, and Kambli married model Andrea Hewitt. After his second marriage, Kambli turned to Christianity, and the couple welcomed a baby son called Jesus Christiano Kambli in 2010.
