Even though the Prince of Kolkata wanted to keep his affair with Nagma under the wraps, it was one of the hottest affairs to have hit the headlines. Since he was married during that time, this flamboyant ex-skipper maintained the strict ‘no comments’ stand. And the affair died a natural death, or so we believe.

Unlike his collegeues, Zaheer Khan has been linked up to just one actress - Isha Sharvani. Isha had made her debut in ‘Kisna’ but her acting career was not going anywhere when she met Zaheer who totally bowled her over. A break up and reuion in 2011, and now we hear they are going to tie the knot.

Sreesanth is controversy’s favourite child. He has a better average of hitting the headlines than his average bowling figures.

Then came a special invite to Ameesha Patel for the World Cup finals; but during a dinner bash he had Neha Dhupia on his arm. We then heard he was dating Anchal Kumar and then there was some Akshara Gowda. But yeah, you can pass it off as rumours.

Geeta Basra and Harbhajan Singh broke up last year after dating for a while. It was then rumoured that commitment issues forced them to call it quits. While Geeta wanted to settle down, but Bhajji wanted to focus on game then, and didn't want to get married for another 2-3 years. So both of them decided it didn't make sense for them to be together in the given scenario. Or are they just being quiet about it?
