The Indian Premier League (IPL) is the most extravagant cricket festival. Every year, we see players from across the world take part in the IPL and many of them have their wives, girlfriends and families cheering them from the stands. Here, we look at 5 most adorable fathers with their kids, in IPL 2015:
1) David Warner (Sun Risers Hyderabad)
Sun Risers Hyderabad skipper David Warner is one of the most hard-hitting batsmen in world cricket. In IPL 2015, Warner is accompanied by his wife Candice Falzon and their baby daughter Ivy Mae. Ivy is 8 months old and she is often spotted with her mother, cheering his father from the sidelines.
2) Virender Sehwag (Kings XI Punjab)
Kings XI Punjab swashbuckling batsman Virender Sehwag is one of the most destructive batsmen in world cricket. But, when he is away from the cricket field with his sons, he is the most adorable father. Although, Sehwag’s wife and kids don’t make too many appearances at the matches, but whenever they come Sehwag makes sure he gets clicked with his lovely sons.
3) Shane Watson (Rajasthan Royals)
Australian all-rounder and Rajasthan Royals skipper Shane Watson is one of the most successful players in the history of Indian Premier League (IPL). Shane Watson is a very aggressive cricketer on the field, but when he is away from the cricket field, Watson is a family man that has his beautiful wife Lee Furlong, a Fox Sports Australia presenter and his son Will. Watson is a very good looking man and his candid photographs with his son Will are always a treat for his fans. Shane Watson and his wife Furlong are expecting their second child as well.
4) Shikhar Dhawan (Sun Risers Hyderabad)
Dashing Indian opener and the backbone of Sun Risers Hyderabad’s batting unit Shikhar Dhawan is known for his attacking batting, stylish moustache and aggressive style but off it, the Delhi lad makes one lovable father. After marrying Melbourne based Ayesha Mukherjee in 2012, Dhawan became father of a cute son, Zoravar in 2014. Ayesha is often spotted with her son and two daughters, cheering for Dhawan.
5) MS Dhoni (Chennai Super Kings)
Be it being photographed carrying little Ziva outside Ranchi airport coming from Suresh Raina’s wedding or posing with wife Sakshi and Ziva in a cute family picture during IPL 8 tour, MS Dhoni just can’t hide his love for his daughter Ziva. Dhoni became father just a week ahead of the World Cup in Australia. His wife Sakshi gave birth to a baby girl in February.
