The new season of the Indian Premier League is just around the corner and we can’t wait for the extravagant event to commence. Cricket fanatics all around the country will gather in some of the best stadiums to cheer on for their teams. Players too, will get some extra support from their partners, who make sure to show the world how important it is to stand by their hubbies.
A year has passed since the time we saw these gorgeous beauties cheer for their men last time out. We take a look at some new faces expected to be present at this years installment of the prestigious T20 tournament along with some of our very cool regulars.
Australian international and former captain of the team, Steve Smith exchanged vows with long time partner, Dani Willis in September last year. The year being a rather disappointing one for the talented batsman with controversy around ball-tampering in early 2018, the couple had a quiet ceremony with friends and family, notably avoiding media attention.
We expect the loving wife to come support her hubby at the latest season of the IPL, where Smith will be playing with the Rajasthan Royals.
Sanju Samson tied the knot with his long time girlfriend Charulatha Remesh in December 2018, where the couple had an intimate ceremony in Kavalom. The duo met in college and have been together ever since. Sanju, who is also a star player with Rajasthan Royals, has been training hard for the season. We can only picture Charulatha cheer as loud as she can for her loving husband as he aims to destroy bowlers from the opposition.
Alongside these new love-doves, we pick our favourite regulars who make sure to keep their men motivated from the stands.
This Bollywood diva is known for her prominent support for hubby Virat Kohli. Even if the busy actress is on sets, she makes sure to show her passion for the game and cheer for her husband. Seeing her rallying for Kohli from the stands is just bliss to watch.
The Royal Challengers Bangalore skipper will be seen leading his star studded team and aim for its first ever title win. While we watch out for his charismatic style of playing, you can keep your eyes open for his stunning wife in the stands.
The Bollywood-Cricket connection is something we love to hype about. Another such couple is Hazel Keech & Yuvraj Singh. Married in 2016, the couple have been setting serious ‘couple goals’, as we go head over heels on the social media posts by these love birds.
The beautiful wife of ‘sixer-master’ Yuvraj Singh has been an avid supporter at the grounds. We’ve seen her show amazing support last year when Yuvi batted for Punjab. This year, as Yuvraj signed for the Mumbai Indians, we’re looking forward to seeing this lovely couple showcase pure love on the pitch as well.
Former Rajasthan Royals main man Shane Watson tied the knot with Lee Furlong in 2010. The couple have since been spotted together when Shane is looking to knock the ball out of the ground, while Lee cheers on. We saw her support the Australian international last year with son Will and we’re rooting for the family to continue the support this year too.
