Ishant Sharma recently got engaged to Indian basketball star Pratima Singh and is now the latest cricketer to join the list of players who will get hitched this year.
The Delhi lad got engaged to Pratima on June 19. The news was disclosed by Ishant Sharma’s Facebook page.
While the occasion was a happy one for Ishant and his family, the brotherly bond between the Indian players was soon evident as fellow teammate Rohit Sharma, who too recently tied the knot, took the opportunity to troll the 6’5” lad.
Rohit, re-shared the engagement pic on Twitter and tagged Ishant while ribbing him for his hair:
Ishant and Pratima have been friends for quite some time and recently decided to take the next step and make their relationship more permanent.
Like Ishant, Pratima too has represented India at the highest level and comes from a family of basketball players.
Her sisters Akansha Priyanka and Prashanti too have represented the Indian team on many occasions, with her elder sister Prashanti even having led the Indian team. Like most senior Indian players, Ishant too is currently on a break ahead of West Indies tour which takes place next month.
