One more cricketer has now joined the married men club. After Yuvraj Singh’s marathon wedding, India’s seamer Ishant Sharma married basketball player Pratima Singh at a farmhouse in Delhi/NCR. The couple tied the knot on Friday night at the Nottingham Hills farmhouse in Gurgaon. Ishant, who was in the India Test squad against England, is on a leave from national duty.
Pratima Singh is a basketball player hailing from Varanasi and has represented the Indian Basketball team at various international events including the Asian Games and is also the former captain of the Indian women’s basketball team.
Ishant was seen wearing a golden and maroon sherwani while Pratima wore a golden shaded lehenga which complimented the colours very well. The wedding celebrations and functions started on December 4 in Varanasi with a pooja.
The special event wedding was attended by his current, former teammates along with other celebrities including politicians. Ishant and Pratima have been long time friends and the engagement ceremony took place on the 19th of June earlier this year. Unfortunately, most of his friends could not attend the wedding as they are currently playing England in Mumbai.
While the wedding was graced by Yuvraj Singh and MS Dhoni, neither Sakshi Dhoni nor Hazel Keech are believed to have attended the wedding function.
It has been just a couple days since the cricketing fraternity partied hard at Yuvraj Singh’s grand wedding. It was a starry affair right from the day one. The couple married in a Punjabi marriage In Chandigarh on November 30 and then flew to Goa for a Hindu marriage on December 2. The entire Indian team, who had just concluded the third Test in Mohali , marked their presence at the wedding along with members of England team as well.
