Bollywood and cricket share a unique relationship. The fields may be as varied as chalk and cheese, but, we have seen plenty of romances develop amidst celebs from both fields. While Virat and Anushka are on top of the table in terms of Bollywood-cricket connections, there are more to the list. Here’s a round up of A-list cricketers and their lesser known partners from the world of glam.
Yuvraj Singh and Hazel Keech
Cricketer Yuvraj Singh was so smitten by actress Hazel Keech that he chased her for a good three years before finally getting into a relationship. Hazel wasn’t interested in him initially, but after a while, she could see his love for her, and finally said a yes. They dated for some time before finally getting married on November 30, 2016. We think they are a darn good-looking couple.
Zaheer Khan and Sagarika Ghatge
Being a part of the same group of friends, Indian cricketer Zaheer Khan and Chak De! India actress Sagarika Ghatge began dating and tied the knot soon after on November 23 last year. The couple never confessed to their relationship status until Zaheer officially proposed to his ladylove with a beautiful ring. It was only then that they let the world know about their marriage plans. Post marriage, the couple continue with their cute PDA moments on social media.
Harbhajan Singh and Geeta Basra
Long before they tied the knot, rumours had been floating around about an affair between Harbhajan Singh and Geeta Basra.
