There is no denying the fact that cricketers undergo a tough life, especially in India, as they get more attention than anywhere in the world. Cricket, as we all know, is the lifeline in this country and its players are always in the news for a plethora of reasons, good or bad. Fortunately or unfortunately, everything a cricketer receives criticism for either personal or professional reasons.
This sometimes makes their life difficult, but being the flag-bearer of such a happening sport in the country, these are the few things they have to deal with. A person next door marrying twice or thrice might not be a big deal, but a cricketer ringing the wedding bells for the second time is quite a hot topic. Here are five famous personalities from the cricketing fraternity who managed to get hitched multiple times:
#1 Imran Khan
Arguably one of the greatest cricketers to have played for Pakistan, Imran Khan was an inspirational leader who took Pakistan to their first and only World Cup win in 1992. He first married Jemima Goldsmith and it lasted for 9 years. After the couple decided to part ways, he married Libyan journalist Reham Khan, but the relationship latest for just 9 months. He recently tied the knot for the third time with Bushra Manek but she has been reportedly gone back to her maternal home accusing Imran of domestic violence.
#2 Dinesh Karthik
This definitely one of the most famous stories in the Indian cricketing fraternity. Dinesh Karthik married his childhood friend Nikita Vanjara in 2007 and when Nikita was pregnant in 2012, he found out that his wife is having an affair with his Tamil Nadu teammate Murali Vijay, which led to the couple getting divorced.
A year after Karthik got separated from Nikita, and Dinesh Karthik ended up finding another life partner in Deepika Pallikal, an Indian Squash superstar. The couple got married in 2015 and are leading a happy life.
