Kochi: Dec 11, 2013
Controversial former India pacer, S Sreesanth will tie the knot with a girl from the Jaipur royal family, a jewellery designer by profession, at the famed Guruvayoor Sree Krishna temple in Kerala, on Thursday morning.
Pre-wedding ceremonies were held at a private hotel here, on Wednesday, attended by the close relatives of Sreesanth and the bride, Bhuveneshwari Kumari.
The couple has been going steady for the past few years, and she stood by him in times of crisis when he was jailed following a spot-fixing scandal, which took place during the last edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL).
The couple will go to Sreesanth’s ancestral home in Kothamangalam in Ernakulam district after the wedding, followed by a reception here, on Thursday, revealed sources close to the fast bowler.
After his arrest on May 16 and subsequent imprisonment till June 11, Sreesanth was banned from all forms of the game by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), after a probe by the country’s cricket body.
Sreesanth has been charged under the draconian Maharashtra Control of Organised Crime Act (MCOCA) and the case has now been posted for Dec 18.
Sreesanth is only the second Keralite to represent India, and has played in 27 Tests (87 wickets), 53 ODIs (75 wickets) and 10 T20s (seven wickets).
