Fans love spotting cricket stars with their families. When these legends are with their wives or loved ones it gives them a more humble, humane touch. Recently, a video of Rohit Sharma with his daughter and wife garnered a lot of attention for its cuteness factor. Cricket fans are often curious to learn more about the better halves of their icons. With the IPL fever building up, we tell you in detail about the five WAGS of the T20 league’s superstar performers.

1. RITIKA SAJDEH

Ritika Sajdeh is the wife of Mumbai Indians captain and Team India’s limited-overs vice-captain Rohit Sharma. Ritika is a sports event manager by profession and used to look after Rohit’s cricket engagements as his manager. Ritika is also former cricketer Yuvraj Singh’s rakhi sister. Ritika and Rohit used to meet continuously for work and that is how they became good friends. This friendship gradually turned into love. Before getting married, Ritika and Rohit knew each other for six years. Rohit proposed Ritika with a solitaire ring at the Borivali Sports Club, Mumbai. This is the ground where he started his cricketing career at the age of 11. Ritika accepted the proposal! Rohit and Ritika tied the knot on December 13, 2015. Their first child Samaira was born in December 2018.
