Squash player and fiance of Indian cricketer Dinesh Karthik, Dipika Pallikal has come out in open and has confessed that she doesn’t like to be categorised in the Wife and Girlfriend ( WAG ) group.

“Why am I asked about the BCCI’s policy on WAG ? I don’t fit into that category. I’m a squash player, “she told Hindustan Times in an interview.

In the past too Dipika has stayed away from these references and has preferred to be a known as Indian squash player rather than being Karthik’s future wife.

“Yes I know. But I think I have done enough on my own not to be in that category. I was the number one squash player in India before I met Dinesh. That’s who I am ,’ Indian squash player’ is what I’ve wanted to be known as, ever since I was a child. But after winning the Commonwealth medal the first question was,’ How does it feel?’ and second ,’ How was it having Dinesh there?’ I was taken aback. ”

Dipika, is currently ranked No. 12 in the World squash rankings and will representing India at the Asian Games.
