Indian cricketer Dinesh Karthik and Indian squash ace Dipika Pallikal on Thursday got married for the second time in three days time. The duo, who had tied the knot in a traditional Christian ceremony in Chennai on Tuesday, got married again in a Telugu-Naidu style wedding on Thursday.

The sports couple had two weddings since the 23-year-old squash player belongs to the Christian community and the 30-year-old wicketkeeper batsman is from a Hindu family.

Dipika was attired in a bright yellow and pink saree and Dinesh was looking dapper in a traditional sherwani and a turban.

Pallikal, who's the first Indian squash player to break into the top 10 of the World Squash rankings, has been engaged to the 30-year-old wicketkeeper batsman since November 15, 2013.

Dipika met Dinesh after his divorce from his first wife and childhood friend Nikita, who is now wife of Indian opener Murali Vijay. They got to know each other at a gym in Chennai where they train under the same trainer, Basu Shankar.

According to media reports, the newlyweds danced to 'Badtameez Dil' song from Ranbir Kapoor and Deepika Padukone-starrer 'Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani' at the reception on Tuesday.

Some cricketers also wished the happy couple.

Pragyan Ojha tweeted, "Congratulations to my dear friend @DineshKarthik & his wife @DipikaPallikal on a new beginning. God bless you guys!"
