Indian players have also been subjected to this on several instances. On the same vein, we take a look at these Indian cricketers who have suffered as a result of it.

The most recent addition to the list is the Indian opener. The couple married in 2012, and Ayesha Mukherjee, his now ex-wife, was already divorced from her first marriage at the time. Dhawan adopted her two children, and a year later, Ayesha gave birth to their son Zoravar. However, after eight years together, the pair has broken up for undisclosed reasons.

Dinesh Karthik

Dinesh Karthik was married to Nikita Vanjara, a childhood sweetheart. Karthik was astonished to know that Nikita was dating India cricketer Murali Vijay in 2012, which prompted him to divorce Nikita. Karthik later married Dipika Pallikal, a squash champion.

Mohammad Azharuddin

In 1996, the former India captain divorced his wife Naureen and married actress Sangeeta Bijlani. The move sparked a backlash. Surprisingly, the cricketer divorced the actress a few years later.
