Team India’s former opener Srikkanth is a romantic person.
Wife Vidya told the story after marriage
New Delhi. Krishnamachari Srikkanth alias Cheeka. Sunil Gavaskar’s partner in Team India. The opener who destroys the balls without giving even an iota of respect to the bowler in the field. Srikkanth made people aware of pitch hitting long before Sachin Tendulkar, Sanath Jayasuriya, Adam Gilchrist, Virender Sehwag and Shahid Afridi. Talking outside the field, Srikkanth is a very romantic person who specializes in telling and making jokes.
In 1983, no one expected that the Indian team could win the World Cup as well. It was believed that Team India would be eliminated from the group stage itself. In such a situation, at the behest of Sunil Gavaskar, after the group match, Srikkanth made a plan to go straight from England to America and celebrate honeymoon. When the team reached the semi-finals, Cheeka had to cancel her plan. Later Srikkanth had said that Kapil Dev owed him Rs 10,000 for this.
According to Srikkanth, Kapil’s intentions were different at that time. He told us that we have come here with the aim of winning the cup. When we reached the semi-finals, I had to forget my honeymoon plans. However, I do not regret it because we became world champions for the first time.
