IPL 2021: Jasprit Bumrah’s wife Sanjana Ganesan dives straight into T20 league business after honeymoon
There is no time to take a break and relax for sports presenter and newly-married Sanjana Ganesan as Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021 gets under with a clash between Mumbai Indians and Royal Challengers Bangalore at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai on Friday (April 9) from 730pm onwards. Former model Sanjana, who got married to Team Indian and Mumbai Indians paceman Jasprit Bumrah last month, will be part of 18-member presenter team across all feeds for IPL host broadcasters Star Sports.
Recently Sanjana took to Instagram to share a throwback picture and captioned it: “Memories worth a lifetime & then some.” Bumrah soon took notice of the post and decided to have some fun. The India pace spearhead commented, “The person clicking the picture is really good.”
The reply was later followed by an adorable response from Sanjana as she revealed the name of the photographer by writing, “That’s why I married him.”
Bumrah on Tuesday (March 30) entered quarantine in Chennai as he gears up to join his Indian Premier League franchise Mumbai Indians (MI) ahead of IPL 2021, which is set to commence from April 9.
