Indian paceman Jasprit Bumrah left his bachelorhood behind today, marrying sports presenter Sanjana Ganesan in a private family in Goa. There has been a lot of speculation around the wedding with very little being revealed from either of the two families.
The pre-wedding rituals had been completed in Goa on Sunday (14 March) and the wedding took place on 15 March. The guests had been reportedly asked not to carry their mobile phones for the ceremony as the couple wanted to keep the affair a secret and stay away from any media glare and only 20 guests have been allowed for the event.
Sanjana has been a regular face of the Star Sports panel and has hosted shows on the Indian Premier League (IPL), badminton, etc. for broadcasters. The 28-year-old has been hosting the weekly show for the IPL franchise Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) titled ‘Knights Club’. Sanjana is a Miss India 2014 finalist and the Maharashtra girl also participated in the MTV show Splitsvilla 7 before starting her career as a sports anchor and presenter.
Pacer Bumrah had been released from India’s Test squad earlier this month ahead of the fourth and final Test match against England in Ahmedabad. The BCCI confirmed that the pacer had asked to be released due to “personal reasons”. Since the day Bumrah was released from the squad, speculations over his wedding had surfaced on social media.
The rumours intensified with each passing day as it was reported that the 27-year-old Indian star will be marrying Sanjana.
After being released from the Test cricket squad, Bumrah was not included in India’s T20I squad for the ongoing five-match series against England. He is expected to now make his comeback in IPL next season which will be played entirely in India and is scheduled to begin from 9 April.
