It’s common knowledge that famous sportsmen tend to date and settle down with gorgeous women.
And why not? They’ve got it all — popularity, prowess, wealth, a rugged image.
In the following pages, we bring you some of the loveliest femme fatales who’ve latched onto an IPL cricketer’s arm — take our poll and let us know who you think wins the stunner stakes hands down!
The actress-veejay has been dating pacer Irfan Pathan of the Delhi Daredevils for over a year now, if the rumour mills and their nights on the town are anything to go by. It looks like they’re going to play it out the ‘good friends’ way, but judging by Anusha’s smouldering looks, she’s definitely a friend the cricketer wants to keep as close as possible!
Aussie batsman and Pune Warriors player Michael Clarke has been dating former model, TV presenter and actress Kyly since 2010 and it’s easy to see why — her drop-dead appeal has seen her voted ‘Australian Swimwear Model of the Year 2002’, ‘Miss Adrenalin Sports Model of the Year 2003’ and she recently made it to this year’s list of Who Weekly’s Beautiful People.
The Bollywood starlet’s relationship with Mumbai Indians captain Harbhajan Singh has been an open secret for years. They’ll never own up to it, but we’re guessing Bhajji will put a ring on her finger sooner or later — and Geeta’s sure to make a smokin’ Mrs Singh!
In the Kolkata Knight Riders’ corner, we have stunning South African model Shamone, who’s the steady girlfriend of all-rounder Jacques Kallis. What a bod — no wonder he seems to have eyes only for her!
Another coy beauty who’s reportedly dating an Indian cricketer! Kannada actress Sanjjanaa is six years older than her rumoured beau and Bangalore Royal Challengers batsman Virat Kohli, but then she’s as sexy and voluptuous as they come — so we’re guessing age really is just a number!
South African bowler and Deccan Chargers player Dale Steyn got taken with the model-actress in 2007 and they’ve been together ever since. With her chocolate locks, innocent face and slender figure, Jeanne Kietzmann is certainly a force to be reckoned with!
Chennai Super Kings skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni broke a million hearts when he stripped himself of his ‘eligible bachelor’ tag and wed Sakshi in 2010. But his pretty, stylish wife is a welcome addition to the cricket WAGs club and she doesn’t have to flash the flesh to fit right in!
When your wife’s a former popstar and lingerie model, you know you’ve hit the jackpot! One such lucky man is British batsman and Delhi Daredevils player Kevin Pietersen, who’s married to blonde bombshell Jessica Taylor.
There’s a lot of speculation doing the rounds that Isha Sharvani and Royal Challengers bowler Zaheer Khan, who have had an on-off relationship for seven years, are going to make things official in 2012. They make a handsome couple — and Isha’s quite a vision on her own too!
And finally, we come to Aussie cricketer and Kings XI Punjab player Shaun Marsh’s gal Amanda. He may hog all the attention on the pitch, but the stylish beauty grabs all the eyeballs off of it!
