Shikhar Dhawan and Ayesha Mukherjee divorced

A day ahead of India’s T20 World Cup team announcement, Delhi Capitals and India opener Shikhar Dhawan has suffered a personal blow. His wife Ayesha Mukherjee (also known as Aesha Mukerji) has shared that the couple has gone separate ways after completing their divorce after almost 10 years.

Separation from his wife for Shikhar Dhawan must have come as a terrible emotional blow for the cricketer.

Shikhar Dhawan is currently in the UAE with the Delhi Capitals squad practising ahead of the IPL.

Shikhar Dhawan married the Melbourne-based boxer, Ayesha Mukherjee, in 2012 and adopted her two daughters from her previous marriage. The couple has a son named Zoravar.

Following her divorce with Dhawan, Ayesha, in an Instagram post, said that going through her second divorce was terrifying.

“Being divorced once before already…I felt like I had more at stake…I had more to prove,” she added. Talking about her first divorce, Ayesha said, “I felt like I had failed and I was doing something so wrong.”

Back in July, Shikhar Dhawan was seen on-field leading the young Indian team during the Sri Lanka tour. He captained India for six white-ball matches in Sri Lanka. Currently, the cricketer is eyeing a place in India’s T20 World Cup squad, which is likely to be announced on Wednesday.
