Not quite cricket

It's barely been a year since his first marriage to his childhood sweetheart fell apart in rather controversial circumstances. It took almost all of Dinesh Kartik's resilience to weather that turbulent phase when rumours were flying thick and fast that fellow Indian teammate and then good friend Murali Vijay and his wife Nikita were having a torrid affair behind his back. When the separation happened, she was pregnant.

Needless to say that ever since, both men have shared cold vibes that could freeze liquids at twenty two yards. Kartik has found love again and his recent fairytale wedding with Indian squash's prettiest pin-up girl Dipika Pallikal seemed to be the beginning of new innings. While Dinesh and Vijay have tried their best to ensure that their paths don't cross again, destiny certainly seems to be playing a private joke on them. At the recent IPL auction in Bangalore, both were snapped up by the same franchise - Delhi Daredevils. It's the honeymoon period for Dinesh and Dipika and with the upcoming season schedule to play out in both South Africa and India, she's likely to join her husband for the tour. Given the complications this is likely to throw up because of Murali Vijay's close proximity, doesn't sound like fun at all.
