It cannot get bigger and better than this! It’s India vs Australia at the semi-final match of ICC World Cup 2015 at Sydney Cricket Ground and the excitement and fervor among Indian fans has reached fever pitch! It’s too exciting – people have applied for mass leaves citing “patriotic” reasons to watch the match today (I have sent in mine too :P). Blue is everyone’s favorite color today, blue is the new pink for us girls, you see! I can’t wait to see how the defending champions play against the mighty Australians to enter into the finals on Sunday *keeping fingers crossed* Now, this post is not about the pitch details and swing conditions of the ball on SCG. We have got equally interesting stuff – wives and girlfriends (short formed WAGs) of the Indian cricket players who are wielding the bat and spinning the ball at SCG. It’s going to be a fun post! Let’s wish that lady luck does indeed shine on our all cricketers today 😛 Read on:
1. Anushka Sharma (girlfriend of Virat Kohli): This Bollywood star and the heartthrob cricketer have not hidden their love from the public.
Through tweets, vacations, and joint appearances, they have made it apparent that they are in love and have acknowledged their relationship openly – a welcome change from celebrities who tag their relationship as “just friends.” You can catch a glimpse or two of Anushka Sharma at SCG today because she is in Australia to cheer for Virat Kohli. How cute is that! 😛
2. Sakshi Dhoni (wife of MS Dhoni):
MS Dhoni has become the second most successful captain ever in cricketing history, queue-ing up just behind Ricky Ponting from Australia. You might have seen Sakshi Dhoni always on the stands at IPL matches cheering on Dhoni; however, if you are wondering why she’s missing at these important matches, she just had a baby girl on February 6th. By the way, I absolutely love Sakshi Dhoni’s bright lipsticks!
3. Ayesha Mukherji (wife of Shikhar Dhawan):
Did you know this “century hitter” (I created that term :P) is married! He got married to boxer Ayesha Mukherji in 2012 and also has a son called Zoravar.
4. Radhika Dhopavkar (wife of Ajinkya Rahane):
This young cricketer married Radhika Dhopavkar in September 2014.
5. Priyanka Choudhary (fiancee of Suresh Raina):
Immediately after the world cup, Suresh Raina will tie the knot with his fiancee Priyanka Choudhary. She is a banker working in Netherlands and the wedding preps are in full swing. Here’s wishing best of luck to both of them 🙂
6. Chetna Jha (fiancee of Ravindra Jadeja):
Not much is known about this middle-order batsman and his girlfriend, but they often get clicked together and have not tried hard to hide their relationship.
7. Prithi Narayan (wife of R. Ashwin):
Prithi is the wife R. Ashwin who has been in total form in these matches at the world cup. They tied the knot in 2011.
8. Tanya Wadhwa (wife of Umesh Yadav):
Umesh Yadav is married to Delhi-based fashion designer Tanya Wadhwa.
9. Hasin Jahan (wife of Mohammed Shami):
The crucial “wicket taker” in WC matches married his girlfriend Hasin Jahan in 2014. Hasin Jahan is a former model.
Now, you know the secret behind the unbeatable streak of Indian cricket team, don’t you? It’s the lady luck shining brightly and radiantly on each one of them 🙂
Here’s wishing best of luck to the Indian cricket team!! Bring it back India! We want the World Cup back!
