Ishant Sharma Dating Sameera Reddy ? Very Early Stage of Career

Audience adulation is not the only common factor that binds celluloid with cricket.

Following actresses Kim Sharma and Deepika Padukone being linked with cricketer Yuvraj Singh, Sameera Reddy is the latest actress to be smitten by a young cricketing sensation. Apparently, she is dating right arm fast bowler Ishant Sharma.

Our source says, “Sameera and Ishant happened to meet during some of the IPL matches. They have hit off very well and are more than just good friends and are getting serious about each other.”

It was during the IPL matches, where Sameera was always seen cheering the Kolkata Knight Riders, that their relationship blossomed. “And not just that, Sameera will be performing at the IPL grand finale. The two have been exchanging messages and are in touch over the phone,” reveals the source.

Sameera Reddy has recently split with her earlier boyfriend, Shamshul Lalani, a Mumbai-based builder.
When asked about her relationship with Ishant, she quickly brushed aside the news. “I am not seeing Ishant Sharma,” she laughed. Well, many have reacted in a similar way.

Dramatic Consecutive Defeat for Mumbai Indians has Kicked Them Out of IPL

First we saw Mumbai Indians losing in the last ball to Kings Punjab XI and now they did again with the Rajasthan Royals, the only difference being they batting in the former and fielding in the latter one.

And the tragedic thing in both the games is that Mumbai Indians dominated in both the games from beginning except losing at the last. With Kings Punjab XI we saw how they failed to score even a single run in the last ball (2 runs was needed for victory). And then the semi-final hopes of the Mumbai Indians suffered a jolt with the table-toppers Rajasthan Royals scoring a spectacular last ball win scoring required 2 runs.
