Bollywood actress Athiya Shetty and Indian wicketkeeper KL Rahul tied the knot in Khandala on Monday.

KL Rahul and Athiya Shetty confirmed their wedding on Twitter and Instagram respectively. The couple wrote: “In your light, I learn how to love… Today we got married with our loved ones in a house that gives us immense joy and peace. With a heart full of gratitude and love, we ask for your blessings on this path of unity.”

Athiya Shetty happens to be the daughter of actor Suniel Shetty and has acted in many films. The couple has been in a relationship for over five years.

KL Rahul and Athiya Shetty’s wedding took place at a picturesque farm in Khandala owned by the latter’s father, Suniel Shetty. The news of the couple’s marriage was confirmed by Suniel Shetty on Sunday.

Before KL Rahul and Athiya Shetty posted their wedding pictures on social media, Suniel Shetty confirmed that the two are married. The marriage ceremony of KL Rahul and Athiya Shetty was attended by the biggest names from both the world of cricket and cinema.

Cricket stars enjoying the festivities included KL Rahul’s India teammates Ishant Sharma and Varun Aaron. Meanwhile, his other teammates could not join him as they were busy preparing for the third ODI against New Zealand to be played at Indore’s Holkar Stadium on Tuesday.

KL Rahul was not included in the squad for the New Zealand series due to personal reasons, which resulted in his wedding to Athiya Shetty.

“It was a beautiful, intense wedding. The lights are ready. The couple is officially married,” Suniel Shetty told reporters after the wedding.

Speaking of KL Rahul, the Karnataka cricketer led the Indian cricket team to a close win over Sri Lanka in the second ODI earlier this month. Needing 216 runs to win at the famous Eden Gardens in Kolkata, the Men in Blue found themselves in deep trouble at 86/4.

But KL Rahul anchored the innings and was unbeaten on 64, helping India to their second consecutive victory over the Dasun Shanaka-led side.

After the match, KL Rahul said that he enjoyed batting on the field and was happy to help the team win against the islands.

“I won’t say that it was a straight goal, but I can’t say that it was impossible to fight with the club either. It was a very sporty door. When we started, I thought it was 280-300 goals. It didn’t move much, spongy bounce, not much else. We batted them very well to get out for 215. Again, the start was faster than the players. They (Sri Lanka) fought well. Made early breakthroughs and put us under pressure. A tough game, we can be proud of the way we fought,” KL Rahul said at the post-match presentation ceremony.

“One thing I really enjoy (about batting at No. 5) is that you don’t rush back into the bat (compared to the opener’s role). You can put your feet up, take a shower, eat well and react to the situation. If the team asks me to hit a certain shot, I try to do it as much as I can. It was more my mindset than trying to do what the team wanted. On the 5th, you’re going to get spin, I like the ball coming closer to the ball. Ro (Rohit) is very clear that that is where he wants me to bat (No. 5) and he conveyed that to me,” explained KL Rahul.

Although he played a match-winning knock in Kolkata, he was dismissed cheaply in the next match, scoring just 7 runs at the Greenfield International Stadium in Thiruvananthapuram.

His poor performance in the final match against Sri Lanka has once again reignited calls for his removal from Team India, which has been going on for some time now.

Since the T20 World Cup in Australia, several former cricketers have raised question marks over his intentions and approach across all three formats on the field. But former India opener Aakash Chopra backed him to produce the No.5 for the two-time World champions.

“He does what the team asks him to do. This is a big deal. Best for Rahul will be the opener but best for the team is batting at 5. I am sure he would have scored many more hundreds, possibly two hundreds. When you look at the Indian ODI setup, there is no place at the top. Kishan scored a double hundred but he was not getting regular games. It doesn’t open in all games either,” Aakash Chopra told Moneycontrol.com.

“He can go down the order. You can’t say the same for others. Other players may bat at 1,2,3 but may not be as successful as Rahul at 5. It’s time to acknowledge what a good player he is,” added Aakash Chopra.
