Moradabad: Nov 30, 2013

 

Indian leg-spinner Piyush Chawla has tied the nuptial knot with his long-time friend Anubhuti Chauhan in a grand ceremony in Moradabad.

 

Chawla and Anubhuti, who happen to be neighbours, got married late last night in the presence of close family members and friends, including the leg-spinner’s Uttar Pradesh teammates.

 

Anubhuti, an MBA, is the daughter of Dr Ameer Singh Chauhan, who is posted as the Chief Medical Officer in Meerut.

 

“My son and Anubhuti are well known to each other for last many years. Anubhuti is very familiar and the relationship has now been changed from friendship to life partners,” said Piyush’s father Pramod Kumar Chawla.

 

The wedding was attended by Chawla’s UP teammates including pacer Irfan Pathan, Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Gyanendra Pandey among others.

 

However, former Test captain and local MP Mohammed Azharuddin, who was invited as special guest, did not attend the ceremony.

 

Chawla has played three Tests and 25 One-Day Internationals (ODIs) for India. He has seven wickets in the five-day format and 32 in the ODIs.
