Kochi: Banned former India pace bowler S. Sreesanth is all set to tie the knot with a girl from a royal family in Jaipur Dec 12 at the famed Guruvayoor Sree Krishna temple, said a close aide of the cricketer.
Speaking to IANS, a close aide of Sreesanth said the marriage plans are being looked after by his brother.
"The wedding will take place at Guruvayoor temple Dec 12 and the same evening there will be a reception in Kochi and another one the next day also at Kochi," said the close aide who did not wish to be identified.
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.
After his arrest May 16 and subsequent jail till June 11, Sreesanth was banned from all forms of the game by the Board of Control for Cricket in India after a probe by the BCCI.
While she has been keeping track of the case, her father is reported to have met Sreesanth while he cooled his heels in the Tihar Jail.
June 12, Sreesanth arrived here to a tumultuous welcome and since then he has been maintaining a low profile.
Monday, he was in Delhi as his case came up at a local court.
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 just only the second Keralite to represent the country and has played in 27 Tests (87 wickets), 53 ODIs (75 wickets) and 10 T20Is (seven wickets).
