The social media handles and the rise of the internet are also one of the main reasons. A decade ago, one was not interested in knowing anything about a wife of a certain Lasith Malinga. The fans adored the pacer for his unique hairstyle and the slinging action.
However, that’s not the case today. Cricket as a community has also grown. Even the boards do make special arrangements for the families and partners of the players on overseas tours.
