Usually, we come across stories of betrayal and cheating in relationships and marriages in the film industry. But it seems like cricket world is no less.
Cheating or extra-marital affairs is something which can shatter lives. Some of our favourite cricketers were also involved in a love triangle.
Yes, we are talking about Murali Vijay and Dinesh Karthik. It is a well known fact that Murali Vijay was involved in an affair with Dinesh Karthik’s wife. Both Dinesh Karthik and Murali Vijay have played for the Indian cricket team and have been always appreciated and loved by their fans.
However, only a few of us know that it was Murali Vijay who broke Dinesh Kartik’s first marriage. Back in that year, the 21-year-old Dinesh married his childhood friend Nikita Vanjara. But unfortunately, things went wrong after 5 years when Nikita had an extramarital affair with Murali Vijay, Dinesh Karthik’s Tamil Nadu teammate.
During Vijay Hazare Trophy match in 2012, Dinesh Karthik came to know about his wife’s affair with Murali Vijay. Dinesh Karthik gave divorce to his wife while she was pregnant with a boy and soon after that Murali Vijay and Nikita married each other. The couple has three children.
The three involved in this triangle have acted maturely and have moved on in their lives rather than giving spice to media. They didn’t give any controversial statements against each other. Dinesh Karthik later married Deepika Pallikal who is a national squash player. The two are now one of the most loved couples in India.
