Danielle Wyatt posted a congratulatory message for Shreevats Goswami on Twitter.
Danielle Wyatt is perhaps the most famous overseas women cricketer in India. The England star first grabbed the limelight in this cricket-obsessed nation when she sensationally gave India batting star Virat Kohli a marriage proposal in 2014 after the right-handed batsman’s exploits in the ICC World Twenty20.
Since then, she has developed a huge fan in India. Time and again, she posts tweets related to Indian cricketers. And it looks like she is familiar not only to the famous players but also those who are yet to make it to international cricket. Well, recently she posted a tweet, congratulating Bengal and Sunrisers Hyderabad batsman Shreevats Goswami.
It all began when Goswami took to Twitter to express his delight after being retained by Sunrisers Hyderabad for the upcoming season.
“Looking forward to another season with the @SunRisers #orangearmy #onebigfamily,” wrote Goswami.

And Danielle Wyatt was quick to congratulate the batsman. Interestingly, she called him Gosssyyy, making it clear that she knows him well.
“Yessss Gosssyyy!!!,” she wrote.

Meanwhile, Sunrisers Hyderabad retained their skipper David Warner for the upcoming season. Warner had missed the last season due to his ban following the ball-tampering scandal. The Hyderabad-based franchise, however, released Indian ‘keeper Wriddhiman Saha, Alex Hales, Chris Jordan, and Carlos Brathwaite. In Saha’s absence, Shreevats Goswami could be seen playing a key role.
In addition to Warner, SRH retained six overseas players: Billy Stanlake, Kane Williamson and the all-round trio of Shakib Al Hasan, Rashid Khan and Mohammad Nabi.
SRH also released four Indian players – Sachin Baby, Tanmay Agarwal, Bipul Sharma and Mehdi Hassan – none of who had played for SRH in 2018.
