India’s seamer Ishant Sharma joined the matrimony club when he 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 and their wedding was attended by MS Dhoni and Yuvraj Singh from the cricketing fraternity.
The wedding was attended by many other celebrities including politicians. Ishant and Pratima have been long time friends and got engaged on June 18 to take that friendship to another level. Neither Sakshi Dhoni or Hazel Keech are believed to have attended the wedding function.
Yuvraj recently entered the wedlock too when he married Keech in nearly week-long celebrations that started with a wedding in sikh traditions, then hindu traditions, after wedding party in Goa and culminated with a well-attended reception in the capital.
Ishant’s India team members weren’t able to attend the wedding function as they’re busy playing England in the fourth Test at Mumbai.
Pratima hails from Varanasi and represents the national team in basketball. 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 can be seen sporting 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.
Ishant has been given leave by BCCI from the Test squad against England for his wedding.
