A lot of marriages seem to have been taking place in the cricketing world. It was only a few back that Rajasthan Royals all-rounder Shivam Dube got married. UP all-rounder Saurabh Kumar has joined the line and got married to his long-time girlfriend Neha Saby in a private ceremony in Ghaziabad. Kumar broke the news through his Instagram handle and shared some pictures of the event too.
Kumar posted the pictures with an adorable caption and it revealed that it had been eight long years since he was in a relationship with his girlfriend. After playing a good amount of cricket for Uttar Pradesh for a long time, Kumar was roped in by PBKS in the IPL 2021 auction at his base price of INR 20 lakhs. After the cricketer broke the news of getting married, many of his UP teammates came in line to congratulate him.
“Can’t believe we have been soulmates for the last 8 years, with you by my life is so beautiful. It feels so wonderful to love someone for this long and get married to that same special one. You are truly a blessing from god. Thank you for being my perfect one (sic),” he wrote on Instagram.

Players who hail from UP like Kuldeep Yadav, Ankit Rajpoot, and Rinku Kumar came up to congratulate the couple. On the other hand, Deepak Hooda also gave his wishes to the newly wedded couple. Though Kumar didn’t get any chance to showcase his skills in the first phase of the IPL 2021, it can be expected that he might receive his chance in the UAE as a lot of players would be unavailable for the mega event.
It has to be noted that Kumar emerged as a leading wicket-taker in the 2017-18 season of Ranji Trophy, playing for Uttar Pradesh. He picked 23 wickets in just four games back then. As the new season is all set to be held in September-October, Kumar might expect the lady luck on his side to help him get some chances in the Gulf nation.
