Successful and top cricketers tend to date some of the best women, while some even have their childhood sweethearts as their girlfriends. Nonetheless, not every cricketer goes on to have a successful relationship in the first go and is involved in a break-up or two.
Indian cricketers are treated with a lot of respect and are referred to as celebrities. Nonetheless, they are just like any other human being on the planet.
Naturally, most of the cricketers have their personal life, which includes having girlfriends. While some happen to be a top woman in the nation, who can be from Bollywood, some are regular childhood friends.
Nevertheless, not all relationships of the cricketers last, as they endure break-up/s. On the same note, we take a look at four Indian cricketers, whose girlfriends broke up with them.
Sourav Ganguly: We start the list with a controversial one. The former Indian skipper already has a happy family with his wife, Dona. Nonetheless, he had reportedly cheated on her after he had a brief affair with Bollywood actress Nagma, in 2001. Meanwhile, Ganguly and his wife has time and again denied any such thing. Nonetheless, Nagma revealed that she had walked away, believing that it could have ruined both Ganguly’s personal life and cricketing career. “As long as there is no denial of each other’s existence in each other’s life, any person can say anything they want. There was a career at stake, besides other things, so one had to part. One had to weigh a lot of things, rather than be on an ego trip and insist on being together,” she had once said.
Yuvraj Singh: Former Indian swashbuckling batsman Yuvraj Singh has been linked with a number of Bollywood hotties. While he was in a serious relationship with Kim Sharma, he also supposedly dated Deepika Padukone later. The couple were spotted together on some occasions, which included dining together during an Australia tour. Although they never made it official, things did not work out between the two, as Deepika moved away.
Rohit Sharma: The Indian opener is married and settled with his long-time friend Ritika Sajdeh, as the couple has a daughter together. Nevertheless, before Ritika, he was reportedly involved in a relationship with British-Indian singer, Sofia Hayat. Although Sofia has denied that there was anything serious between them, she had a thing for him. Nevertheless, she decided to move on from him, owing to his busy cricketing schedule and commitments.
Virat Kohli: Now, this might sound out of the box, but it seems to be true. Prior to getting settled with Bollywood bombshell, Anushka Sharma, one of Kohli’s ex-girlfriends happened to be Izabelle Leite. She is a Brazilian actress, who was once acting in Bollywood movie Sixteen, while she met Kohli at a party. They reportedly became close and were also seen dating in Singapore. Nonetheless, things did not seem to work out, as Izabelle decided to move on from him and get settled in Brazil, while she continues to do projects in India to date.
