Indian Cricketers are worshipped and adored by their countless fans, especially female fans. With success, comes fame, which in turn leads to them getting a lot of female attention, which any young player wouldn’t mind.
At present, India has a huge list of youngsters who could carry forward the legacy of the present team. Thanks to social media, fans also get to know about the personal lives of a cricketer, apart from their professional lives.
Some try to flaunt it by posting photos with their sweethearts while some like to keep it a bit private. Having said that, let’s take a look at 5 Indian cricketers and their rumoured girlfriends.
- Shubman Gill and Sara Tendulkar
We all saw the exploits of Shubman Gill in the recently-concluded Test series against Australia. The 21- year-old scored an inspiring 91 in the fourth and final Test at Brisbane as India beached the Gabba ‘fortress’ and won the series by 2-1.
Shubman is rumoured to be dating legendary Indian batsman Sachin Tendulkar’s daughter, Sara Tendulkar. Interestingly, if you search Shubman Gill wife on Google, Sara’s name tops the charts.
However, Shubman and Sara have never openly admitted about their relationship as they probably want to keep it in private. But their social media activities suggests that they are indeed dating each other.
2. Prithvi Shaw and Prachi Singh
Another young bloke in this list, opening batsman Prithvi Shaw is rumoured to be dating television actress Prachi Singh. Both of them often interact with each other in the comment section which has often indicated the fans about their relationship.
During IPL 2020, Prachi had posted a heartfelt story for Shaw after his match-winning knock against CSK. She also wished him on his birthday by posting a heart emojis on her Instagram story, which Shaw added to his story.
3. KL Rahul and Athiya Shetty
Known from his swashbuckling approach with the willow, the 28-year-old KL Rahul is rumoured to be dating Athiya Shetty, daughter of veteran Bollywood actor, Sunil Shetty. However, the pair is quite very private about their relationship.
But, on special occasions, Rahul and Athiya share a glimpse of their intimate relationship with the fans. On her 27th birthday, the Indian batsman posted a picture with the actress and wished her a happy birthday. Athiya too had also wished Rahul on his birthday.
Interestingly, Sunil had also shared a picture with Rahul to wish him on his birthday. On being asked about Athiya and Rahul’s relationship, Sunil, instead of rubbishing the rumours, had said: “I am not having the relationship. You will have to ask Athiya. You come and tell me if it is true, then we will talk about it.”
4. Ishan Kishan and Aditi Hundia
From leading India during the triumphal 2015 U19 World Cup to ending the IPL 2020 season as the highest run-scorer of his franchise Mumbai Indians, youngster Ishan Kishan has already achieved a lot in his career.
The 22-year-old batsman has become one of the most talked-about players despite not playing the game for India, so far. Apart from his involvement in the game, fans are also aware that Ishan is dating model Aditi Hundia, who hails from Jaipur.
She was seen supporting him from the stands in the IPL 2019 final between MI and CSK. Both have expressed their affection for each other on social media. After Ishan scored a gritty 99 against RCB in IPL 2020, Aditi posted a story with a heart emoji for the southpaw.
5. Rishabh Pant and Isha Negi
India’s triumph over Australia saw Rishabh Pant emerge as a national hero. From his gutsy knock against Sydney to his match-winning knock at the Gabba, Rishabh Pant took the cricketing folklore by storm.
Particularly, Pant is one of the few Indian players who has not kept his relationship under the wraps. The hard-hitting southpaw is too in a love relationship. He is apparently seeing entrepreneur and interior décor designer, Isha Negi.
Both openly post photos with each other and their mandatory couple new year photo in the snow had sent the Netizens abuzz. Pant is currently in quarantine ahead of the Test series against England, starting from February 5.
