New Delhi: Cricketer Rohit Sharma is all set to tie the knot with long-time fiancé Ritika Sajdeh on December 13, said media reports. He will be the third cricketer to enter matrimony this year after Suresh Raina and Harbhajan Singh.
Rohit, a right hand batsman, and Ritika, a sports event manager, were engaged in May.
December 13 has been fixed for the marriage because the Indian team has no commitments during that time, a source close to the cricketer revealed. Notably, Team India's Test series against South Africa will end on December 7 in Delhi.
Rohit knows Ritika for the last six years as she has been managing his cricket engagements. He proposed to her at the Borivali Sports Club in Mumbai.
As per reports, Rohit Sharma's marriage ceremony will be a half-day affair in a five-star hotel at Bandra. Retired legend Sachin Tendulkar, who also attended Harbhajan Singh and Geeta Basra's marriage on October 29, is expected to bless the couple.
However, the full guest list for Rohit and Ritika's marriage is yet to be revealed.
