The paparazzi have long followed cricketers and their private affairs. You can’t keep the newsmakers away, whether it’s Virat Kohli’s wedding to Anushka Sharma in Italy or Shubman Gill’s hilarious snarky fishing with suspected lover Sara Tendulkar on Instagram.

Vinod Kambli

Vinod Kambli, an Indian batsman, married his childhood friend Noella Lewis in 1998. However, the pair split up. After that, Kambli wedded Andrea Hewitt, a model. In 2010, Kambli and Andrea had their first child. He was given the name Jesus Christiano Kambli.

Dinesh Karthik 

The divorce of Dinesh Karthik is possibly the most dramatic. After marrying Nikita Vanjara, his childhood friend, in 2007, the Indian wicketkeeper discovered that Nikita was having an affair with Murali Vijay, a teammate from India and Tamil Nadu. Karthik divorced Nikita in 2012 and married Dipika Pallikal, the current India squash star, three years later. Murali Vijay and Nikita have a daughter and two sons.

Shikhar Dhawan

Ayesha Mukherjee, a Bengali from Melbourne, revealed her breakup with left-handed Shikhar Dhawan in a long emotional Instagram post on Tuesday. Ayesha, 46, is now a divorced woman for the second time. Ayesha and Shikhar Dhawan have a seven-year-old kid named Zoravar.

Javagal Srinath

After nine years with Jyotsna, former India pacer Javagal Srinath wedded unsuccessfully. In 1999, the couple tied the knot but divorced in 2008. The 52-year-old former Indian pacer, who has 551 international wickets and is now an ICC match referee, married journalist Madhavi Patravali later that year.

Mohammad Azharuddin

Former India cricket team captain Mohammad Azharuddin used to create news with Bollywood actress Sangeeta Bijlani decades before Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma. In 1996, the couple tied the knot. Azharuddin and Bijlani, on the other hand, divorced in 2010. Azharuddin was divorcing for the second time. Before marrying Bijlani, he divorced his first wife, Naureen.

With Naureen, whom he married in 1987, Azharuddin had two sons, Asaduddin and Ayazuddin. Azharuddin, a former Congress MP, lost his younger son Ayazuddin in a fatal motorcycle accident in 2011.
