India's middle-order batsman Cheteshwar Pujara tied the nuptial knot with fiancee Puja Pabari, at a private family function in Rajkot.

The three-day wedding functions started last night with the 'Sangeet Sandhya'. The marriage rituals would take place this evening followed by a reception tomorrow.

Puja belongs to Gujarat's Jamnagar district and is a management graduate.

"Entire Indian team and the BCCI officials are invited," said Arvind Pujara, Cheteshwar's father.

However, his teammates are not likely to attend, as they would be busy preparing for the series against Australia.

Pujara did not play in the Irani Trophy match against Mumbai and also missed the Board President XI tie against Australia on account of his marriage.
