Luckily or unfortunately, every move a cricket player makes throughout their private or professional life is closely watched; whether it’s a relationship or a breakup, the players’ lives are challenging since they are always in the news.
A country may not give a damn when someone marries for the second or third time, but when a cricket player does the same, it becomes national news. Here is an overview of all the cricket players who moved on to tie the knot for a second or third time, which you can find in this article.
3 players who have gotten married more than once
3) Brett Lee
After only three years of marriage, former Australian pace bowler Brett Lee and Elizabeth Kemp divorced. While Lee was abroad, Kemp was reportedly having an affair in Brisbane with a rugby player. But Kemp’s pal refuted the rumours. Even as she frantically tried to keep her marriage intact, Kemp even insisted that she was ousted from their home.
Kemp’s friends told The Sunday Telegraph they believed she suffered months of loneliness in their relationship since Lee was rarely home because of his numerous endorsement deals and sponsoring obligations. From his first marriage, Lee has a son. After his divorce from Kemp, he wed Lana Anderson in 2014. They are now the parents of two kids.
2) Shoaib Malik
2010 saw Sania call off her engagement to Pakistani cricket player Shoaib Malik. The wedding was preceded by a great deal of turmoil. There were rumours circulating that Malik was previously wed to Ayesha Siddiqui, a girl from Hyderabad.
Malik, however, refuted the accusations and then acknowledged the marriage once the girl’s family produced a marriage certificate proving her union with the Pakistani cricket player. Afterwards, Malik divorced. Earlier today, Shoaib Malik announced his third marriage but he is still married to Sania, with divorce rumours floating around for a while.
1) Dinesh Karthik
Nikita Vanjara, Dinesh Karthik’s first wife, betrayed him by having an extra-marital affair with Murali Vijay. Additionally, Nikita was expecting the first child at the time, according to various reports. The 21-year-old cricket player wed his childhood girlfriend in a conventional ceremony back in 2007. But immediately following five years of blissful marriage, Nikita fell in love with his teammate, Murali Vijay.
They later split in 2012, while Nikita was expecting her first baby. In the present, Dinesh Karthik is contentedly wed to Dipika Pallikal, the squash queen of India. For the uninitiated, their first official encounter occurred while they were enrolled in fitness courses with the same instructor, Basu Shankar.
