We would like to clarify that by foreigners we mean those who were brought up in any other country besides India. This means that many of these wives may have Indian ancestry. Let’s begin with the list of Indian Cricketers Who Married Foreigners.

He is married to UK based Jagdeep Jaiswal who is also a healthcare assistant there. The couple recently had a child named Rajveer in January 2021. Singh and Jaiswal are both from Sikh background. Though Mandeep’s international career has had him play just 3 T20I matches.
These were the five cricketers from India who married foreigners. Though many trolls trolled the likes of Hardik Pandya when his engagement happened with Natasha, we should note that it isn’t acceptable behaviour to do so.
