The Cricket World Cup 2015 is well underway with millions of cricket fanatics tuning in to watch the first match taking place on Valentines Day.
However, there cannot have been much romance guaranteed on the day of love for the Indian cricket team due to the team’s wives and girlfriends forbidden to accompany their spouses on their trip to Australia in order to not distract them from the very important tournament. This tactic may be working as India set off to a great start, winning their first match against Pakistan. We have taken this opportunity to introduce you to some of Cricket’s hottest WAGs…
5. Sakshi Dhoni
Popularly referred to as Cricket’s First Lady, Sakshi Dhoni is wife to India’s most popular cricketer, MS Dhoni. The 25-year-old has been married to Dhoni since 2010, 2 years after meeting the sportsman whilst she was interning at a hotel he was staying at. Despite being one of the most popular faces in India, Sakshi doesn’t seem to conform to the usual celebrity lifestyle but is often seen supporting her husband at cricket matches. Her time will now be spent looking after their newborn daughter who was born last week whilst MS Dhoni was away playing for his country in Australia. He was so committed to winning the tournament that he won’t be taking a break from the World Cup to meet his new daughter!
4. Kyly Clarke
Australian model and weather woman Kyly Clarke has been married to Aussie cricketer and regular team captain Michael Clarke since 2012. Apparently knowing each other since their school days, Kyly and Michael got together shortly after he broke up with his ex-girlfriend. From then on, the pair have been inseparable and have recently glammed up for a fashion shoot for Harper’s Bazaar magazine, posing in a series of sexy shots. Doing what she does by flaunting her envious figure, Kyly has won numerous beauty awards such as Miss Indy 1999 and Australian Swimwear Model of the Year 2002. Despite frequently being in the public eye, the couple state that they try and shy away from the limelight (despite Micheal endorsing numerous products and Kyly starring on Dancing with the Stars).
3. Lee Furlong
Celebrating 5 years of marriage this year, Lee Furlong has been married to Australian batsman Shane Watson. Before she became a cricket WAG, Lee was a popular sports presenter but put her career on standby as she wanted to focus her efforts on being a mother. The blonde beauty and the popular cricketer have recently announced that they are expecting another child, so it may be sometime before she heads back to TV presenting! Not that she needs to, her husband was reported the highest paid cricketer outside of India in 2012.
2. Ayesha Mukherjee
Ayesha has been married to Shikhar Dhawan since 2012 and their relationship continues to go strong. Known for being the extremely attractive wife of Shikhar Dhawan, Ayesha isn’t just a pretty face. Despite being born and raised in Australia, Ayesha is a Bengali woman at heart, fluently speaking the Bengali language and is also quite religious. What’s more, she is an avid sportswoman and an amateur boxer! The couple met under not so romantic circumstances when Shikhar sent Ayesha a friend request on Facebook and she accepted from the suggestion of Harbhajan Singh. They have one child together with Ayesha having two children from her previous marriage. The couple seem perfect for each other – bonding over their love of fast bikes and tattoos!
1. Anushka Sharma
Anushka Sharma is extremely famous in her own right as a talented Bollywood actress. Coupled with Virat Kohli, one of the greatest cricketers in the world at this moment in time, they make a pretty successful (and attractive!) couple. Starring in one of the biggest movies of 2014, PK, Anushka Sharma has her own exciting acting career. The pair met on set for a shampoo commercial that they shot together and officially began dating in November 2014. Despite their relationship being quite hush hush up until now, it is clear that the pair are loved up with Anushka being spotted over in Australia spending time with Virat during the Christmas and New Year period. Kohli doesn’t seem to want to hold back from making the relationship public, he’s often seen blowing kisses to Anushka whilst she is watching him play a cricket match.
