Jasprit Bumrah got married to sports presenter Sanjana Ganesan on March 15. They didn’t reveal anything about their relationship and the fans were surprised when the news of his marriage with Sanjana hit the headlines. Bumrah and Sanjana are currently in England where the Indian pacer is representing his national team in the ongoing Test series against England.
Recently, Bumrah explained how the relationship between the two blossomed. In a conversation with Dinesh Karthik on Sky Sports, Bumrah spoke about his personal life.
“I had obviously seen her a lot of times but we had the same problem with each other. She thought I was really arrogant, I thought she was really arrogant so we never really spoke. I spoke to her for the first time during the 2019 World Cup when she was here covering the event. We became friends and started talking a lot. It’s been good, we have been married for five months now, so yeah very happy,” Bumrah recalled.
Bumrah has credited his wife for keeping him in the right frame of mind. He believes having a wife on tours helps him switch off after the game.
“She understands the sport, she understands what the player goes through, so whenever things don’t go well or go well, we have a lot of interesting conversations, that really helps me. And, obviously, playing cricket and travelling all the time, you’ve got your wife with you now, so, you really have to focus on other things as well.
“You can switch off after the game. All these factors are really helpful and I’m really happy how this relationship has developed,” Bumrah further added.
