Cricketers who got smitten by Bollywood divas

  • Anushka Sharma - Virat Kohli<br />
Anushka and Virat started dating soon after they shot for a shampoo commercial together. It took them two years before they started seeing each other at public events. The two made their debut public appearance together for a super league match which involved FC Goa (owned by Virat Kohli). It was all out in the open when Virat blew a kiss at Anushka during a one day match after completing his half century. Virat also confirmed the relationship at the launch of his fashion line. Sadly, the actress of the upcoming film NH10 and Bombay Velvet will be missing from Virat&rsquo;s quest for the World Cup after the ICC directive barred couples to be together during WC matches.

  • Geeta Basra - Harbhajan Singh <br />
This couple can truly be dubbed as a strange couple. Despite having been steady for so many years and spotted several times they have never spoken about their relationship.

But given the steadiness of their relationship we do expect an official announcement someday. Hope the announcement happens this year.
