There is hardly time to breathe in the competitive world. Take former model and currently Star Sports broadcaster Sanjana Ganesan, who tied nuptial knots with Indian cricketer Jasprit Bumrah last month, for example. The 14th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021 gets underway with the defending champs, Mumbai Indians, taking on the Royal Challengers Bangalore at the MA Chidambaram Stadium, Chennai.
Ganesan, a renowned presenter and host, is one of the 18-member team that is supposed to handle all the feeds across IPL for Star Sports and she is back to her duty within a month of her marriage. The newly-wed recently took Instagram to share a throwback picture captioned as: “Memories worth a lifetime & then some.” Reacting on it, his Indian pacer Bumrah commented: “The person clicking the picture is really good.” The string of responses did not halt there as Sanjana, in response, posted “That’s why I married him.”
