It is another wicket down for India. After Yuvraj Singh, it was Ishant Sharma’s turn to get hitched. Ishant exchanged rings with his beau Pratima Singh on Sunday morning. He shared his special moments on his official social media account. Pratima is the member of India Women’s national basketball team. Ishant’s lady love comes from family that has a legacy to follow and play basketball. In fact, Pratima’s three sisters are also the member of Indian Women’s national basketball team. The 27-year-old has not shown any glimpses with the ball after the Australia series earlier this year, although he had an ordinary season in this edition of IPL for new franchise Rising Pune Supergiants (RPS).
