8. Dinesh Karthik – Dipika Pallikal
Indian squash player Dipika Pallikal hated cricketers because of all the attention they received. She wouldn’t have imagined in her wildest dreams that she would get married to a cricketer. Dinesh and Dipika first met in a fitness session under Shankar Basu.
For Dinesh it was love at first sight when he saw beautiful Dipika. They slowly started interacting and Dipika’s perception about cricketers started to change. In 2013, Dinesh decided to visit Dipika in England. This move made Dipika instantly fall for Dinesh.
Both of them spent time together and even played squash together. After India’s 2013 Champions Trophy win, Dinesh proposed to his beautiful wife in London. They officially got engaged in 2013 and married in 2015. Dipika now often visits the stadium to witness Dinesh play.
