Wedding bells: Ishant Sharma tied the knot
After Yuvraj Singh, Ishant Sharma joined the matrimony club when he married basketball player Pratima Singh at a farmhouse in Delhi/NCR. Ishant Sharma tied the knot on Friday night at the Nottingham Hills farmhouse in Gurgaon and their wedding was attended by MS Dhoni and Yuvraj Singh from the cricketing fraternity.
Hazel Keech was not spotted at the marriage. She might be enjoying her new married status. The wedding was attended by many other celebrities including politicians. Ishant Sharma and Pratima have been long time friends and got engaged on June 18 to take that friendship to another level.
Yuvi too recently got married to Bollywood actress Hazel Keech and that was a big fat Sikh wedding. Ishant Sharma wife Pratima is from Varanasi and international basketball ball player by profession. Ishant has been seen to attend her games over the past few months. In fact, many members in Pratima’s family have a basketball background. Ishant was spotted wearing sporting 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. Ishant has been given leave by BCCI from the Test squad against England for his wedding.
When love blossomed between the two?
Love can blossom anywhere. While there have been countless of romantic stories in the hills or the deep blue sea, this one is a court apart for Team India’s speedster Ishant Sharma. One of the amazing love stories is of MS Dhoni too.
Ishant, 27, who got engaged to basketball player Pratima Singh in June, has a cute little love story of his own and it all began on the basketball court. Pratima who is a basketball player spent most of her time on the court, meeting the lanky cricketer for the first time and subsequently falling for him, might have been the best thing that could happen to her.
Pratima has four other elder sisters and she is the youngest one. Her family is famously known as ‘Basketball Family.’ Best part in their relationship is both of them are great sports personality and dedicated to their sports.
Pratima was recently quoted saying
“Not much will change regarding my commitment to sports even after marriage. We both know and understand how to maintain a balance between career and relationship. I have always been great in time management, the reason I could play for so many years for the nation. This will not change even after marriage. My duty towards the nation will not be kept aside by Ishant, no matter what.”
