Since the dawn of time, the worlds of cricket and Bollywood have continued to walk hand in hand and walk together. While certain love tales, such as that of Virat and Anushka or Sharmila Tagore and Tiger Pataudi, have stood the test of time, there have been many instances when love has been spoken but never manifested. Here are 6 cricketers and actresses that were once in a relationship that we all forgot about:
1. Rohit Sharma and Sofiya Hayat.
This was an affair that generated a lot of interest. It was reported that Sofia Hayat, a British-Indian model, was dating actor Rohit Sharma, and although the actress maintained her denial of the relationship, rumors suggest that the two had been dating for quite some time.
2. Yuvraj Singh and Kim Sharma.
Yuvraj Singh is currently married to Hazel Keech, but back in 2007, the cricketer was involved with Kim Sharma and the two were on a first-name basis. Having been together for a lengthy amount of time, the two decided to split ways peacefully.
3. Sreesanth and Ria Sen.
It was more than a decade ago that there were rumors of the two being romantically involved. While none of them acknowledged the rumors, they were often seen together at events. Sreesanth is currently blissfully married to his long-term partner.
4. Amrita Singh and Ravi Shastri
The two were said to have been passionately in love at the time when he was a well-known figure in the cricket world and Amrita was ruling supreme in the film industry before they ultimately split up.
5. Zaheer Khan and Isha Sharwani
In the years before he met Sagarika Ghatge, Zaheer was in a long-term relationship with actress Isha Sharwani, who became his soulmate and love. In accordance with reports, the two made the decision to concentrate on their different jobs, and as a result, their relationship came to an end naturally.

Harbhajan Singh, the spin king of the Indian cricket team fell for Geeta Basra’s commitment and devotion for the country. The pair tied the knot in 2015, deciding to keep their relationship out of the spotlight for the time being. And now they have added to their family by welcoming new members.
