Today we will tell you about the love story of dashing cricketer Shikhar Dhawan and Australian-origin boxer Ayesha. Dhawan was bowled over after seeing Ayesha's pic on Facebook. He first sent her a friend request least expecting that she would accept it. She accepted the friend request from Dhawan and they began to chat on the social media.

Online Friends to Love Birds

The chatting reached a crescendo and the duo did not realise when they fell in love. Despite the big age gap - she is 10 years elder to him - between the two, Shikhar went ahead and proposed to her. In a sign of true love, Dhawan was also aware that Ayesha was a mother of two kids - Riya and Aliya. While Ayesha accepted the marriage proposal, Shikhar sought time as he was just about focusing on his career and also had to convince his family.

Shikhar's family was against the marriage to a girl elder to him. He convinced him and they went ahead with the marriage on October 30, 2012.

Ideal Couple

The pair of Shikhar and Ayesha are considered to be Team India's most ideal couple. Shikhar is often accompanied by wife Ayesha and their son Zoravar, on all tours of the Indian cricket team.
