But the main fact is Geeta denies her relationship with cricketer Harbhajan Singh, stating that they are merely ‘good friends’. 

3. Deepika Padukone: Deepika has been seen in cricket ground many times. This statement arise one question. Is she really a cricket fan? Yuvraj Singh, after his break up with Kim Sharma was linked to Deepika. Though we don’t know what emerged between them.

5. Riya Sen: Riya Sen, one of the hottest actresses of Bollywood was also linked with cricket. She was having a ‘close friendship’ with Sreesanth. She never talked about their relationship rather it could be said friendship.

She has also starred in some Bollywood and other Indian films. One of the steadiest romances in the world of cricket and Bollywood, Isha and Zaheer had their share of ups and downs during their 8 year long relationship with each other. But the shocker when the duo said that they are not getting married, but separating instead.

8. Surveen Chawla: We are all aware of this name, those who were not aware, after the release of ‘Hate Story 2’, everyone knows her name. This beautiful figure is connected with Indian bowler Sreesanth, before Sreesanth’s fondness for Riya Sen came to the light.

9. Sarah Jane Dias: Sarah is an Indian actress, host, VJ and former beauty queen. She was the winner of Femina Miss India 2007.  Virat was in a steady relationship with former Miss India World and pretty actress Sarah Jane Dias before his relationship with Anushka Sharma.

She was also linked with cricket.  Amisha was the special guest of Yuvraj at the world cup final match between India and Sri Lanka. Amisha cheered for him all the way while he was bowling. With that one stroke, the all-rounder must’ve broken several hearts. That said, given the long line of B-Town beauties on Yuvi’s arm, is Amisha the latest maiden to be bowled over? It sure seems to be.
