Indian all-rounder Krishnappa Gowtham has left Team India’s camp in UAE to fly back home to be with his pregnant wife. The CSK spinner joined Team India’s bio-bubble along with Karn Sharma, Lukman Meriwala and Shahbaz Ahmed, earlier this month. Notably, Gowtham didn’t even get to play a single game for the Chennai Super Kings this season. However, he was asked to join India’s camp as a net bowler for the T20 World Cup.

The Karnataka all-rounder came in the limelight as he became the most expensive uncapped Indian to be bought in IPL auction for a massive Rs. 9.25 crore in this year’s mini-auction, yet he didn’t get to play a single game.

“It’s good to be back”- Gowtham’s wife posts on social media

Krishnappa Gowtham’s pregnant wife Archana Sundar posted a selfie on Instagram story with her husband mentioning ‘It’s good to be back, home’. The couple announced in September that they are expecting their first child and shared a few snaps on social media. “We are brewing a little miracle. Our hearts are filled with gratitude and joy as we eagerly await the arrival of our little wonder in January 2022,” Gowtham had captioned the post. They posted pictures in black dapper outfits, as well as in CSK’s jersey posing with the baby bump. The Indian cricketer’s post was showered with blessings from Hardik Pandya, Rahul Chahar amongst others congratulating the couple for the happy news.

Gowtham made his international debut in the limited overs tour against Sri Lanka in the month of July, playing one ODI and registered one wicket to his name. However, despite being picked for a whooping price, the CSK all-rounder didn’t feature in a single game this season and only featured as a substitute fielder in a few matches.
