Inside Viv Richards and Wife Miriam Richards Relationship
Sir Isaac Viv Richards married Miriam Richards a very long time ago in the 80s.
And the couple is still intact, enjoying each other's company. Miriam has always supported Viv through thick and thin. When he was down in confidence, which happens to every player, she was his motivation to stand up and fight again.
When Richards was enlisted in the ICC Cricket Hall of Fame in 2009, his wife, Miriam Richards, and his two children, Mali and Matara, could not be much happier. He captained West Indies in one of their golden phases from 1984 to 1991, and his fierce will to win significantly boosted the team's confidence.
His leadership, nevertheless, was not without whine; one instance was his combative in the 1990 Barbados Test, England batsman Rob Bailey was incorrectly dismissed due to a "finger-flapping" appeal that Wisden referred to as at best undignified and unattractive.
Miriam stayed by him and helped him throughout his every good and bad, but Richards sought a different option. While still in marriage with Miriam, he made out with Indian actress Neena Gupta in the late 1980s. The West Indies star and Neena had a brief secret relationship until Neena became pregnant with Richards's baby. Masaba Gupta, a fashion designer, was born out of the two.
