Many of the KKR players were visibly emotional as they emphasised how important it was for head coach Gautam Gambhir and assistant coach Abhishek to help the team transform into a championship-winning team that defeated Sunrisers Hyderabad after holding them to an all-time low of 113 runs.  

Given that Nayar had to wait 16 years to win the championship, he remarked that their victory meant the world. Amid the celebration and emotions, let us have a look at who his wife is. 

Who is Abhishek Nayar’s wife Natasha?

Natasha Nayar originally Natasha Sheikh, is the wife of Kolkata Knight Riders’ assistant coach Abhishek Nayar. She is a hair and makeup artist. She is also the owner of the salon brand Hair Garage. 


The couple got married in 2014 on June 7. The former player announced his engagement via X (formerly Twitter) saying, ‘’I am now engaged.” Before getting married, Nayar told MiD-DAY that he had concluded that 30 was the ideal age for him to tie the knot. 


Nayar remembered when and where they had first met, as well as who had contacted Natasha. “I had gone for a haircut and she was my hairstylist. That’s how we met.  The guy has to be the first one to do it.” 

The former cricketer further said, “We were contemplating marriage for some time. I just said it very casually.

There was no special atmosphere created.” He further stated that he was “lucky” that she was in his life and has been very “supportive.” “She was always there to pick me up rather than push me down.” 


Not much is known about Natasha as she has kept her life out of the limelight. However, she must be very happy seeing the KKR’s recent achievement.
