The ongoing lockdown period, amid coronavirus scare, is one of the most challenging phases in life for many outgoing and socialising kind of people.
However, the case is not the same with married cricketers who struggle to find some quality time with family, relatives and close friends.
Sachin Tendulkar, during his emotional farewell speech, talked about missing out on important birthdays of his son and daughter and also missing out on the anniversaries.
Such is the hectic schedule of cricketers. And more so who feature in all formats of the game as well as the Indian Premier League (IPL).
Indian captain Virat Kohli, during one of the press conferences, spoke about essentially cricketers playing 11 months a year, with back to back series and tours scheduled, giving no breathing to cricketers to spend time with family.
Vice-captain of the Indian team, Rohit Sharma, recently revealed about him being present at home after a long while, to celebrate his birthday ‘after a long, long time’, during a chat with David Warner.
In normal circumstances, Rohit was scheduled to captain Mumbai Indians in the thirteenth edition of the IPL.
In a recent emotional post, Rohit uploaded a picture with his better-half Ritika Sajdeh, captioning, it as: “As we say learning never stops, I’m grateful to have this time in hand to understand and to understand and learn something every day about each other. This time has made me realize what we miss, when we are not together,” to melt many hearts.
The love-story of Rohit and Ritika is a unique one. Earlier, Ritika managed Rohit as a professional, but soon their dynamics changed into a relationship, after being best friends.
The two tied in the knot in 2015 and got blessed with a lovely daughter Samaira in 2018. The Sharma family is often seen at the Wankhede Stadium, celebrating Mumbai Indians victory.
