Cramped schedules may hardly give cricketers time to breathe but it looks as though Ravichandran Ashwin has planned his time extremely well. He married his childhood friend Preethi Narayanan in Chennai on Sunday, a day before India's second Test match against West Indies.
The ceremony was a low-key affair with close friends and and family members among those who were invited.
The Indian team had to miss the ceremony because of Monday's match but selector Kris Srikkanth was able to attend the function.
The bride, Preethi Narayanan, is Ashwin's childhood friend. The two reportedly got engaged during IPL 2011.
The off-spinner had earlier made a dream Test debut as he picked up 9 wickets in a man of the match 1st Test performance.
The wedding almost wraps up a fabulous year for Ashwin, who also won the World Cup and the Indian Premier League earlier.
Ashwin has been a regular feature in the team ever since he dethroned Harbhajan to be India's first choice off-spinner.
