Yuzvendra Chahal shared photos of his haldi ceremony – a ritual that usually precedes a wedding – where he can be seen with his wife Dhanashree Verma and others. “It was all yellow,” Chahal wrote in the Instagram post. Chahal and Dhanashree tied the knot on Tuesday, December 22. The cricketer had also shared photos of the wedding ceremony on Tuesday. Chahal, 30, became engaged to Dhanashree in August this year and the two got married after Chahal returned from Australia, where he played on the limited-overs leg of India’s 2020-21 tour.
Chahal and his wife Dhanashree, a content creator, are quite active on social media and have shared quite a few posts in recent months.
Chahal’s Indian teammates Shikhar Dhawan, Yuvraj Singh and Suresh Raina among others, as well as the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) and Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB), the team for which Chahal appeared in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020, wished the cricketer about his marriage.
A leg spinner, Chahal made his international debut in 2016 in a one-day international against Zimbabwe, playing 54 ODIs and 45 Twenty20 Internationals for India so far.
He has 92 wickets in ODIs and 59 in T20Is. In the IPL, he was a mainstay for RCB as their lead spin bowler.
Chahal has 121 IPL wickets from 99 matches and finished the 2020 season with 21 wickets from 15 matches, even as RCB was eliminated in the playoffs.
Chahal’s next feature in international cricket could well be the limited tour from England to India in March 2021.
