Ishant Sharma, the Indian fast bowling spearhead got engaged to basketball player Prathima Singh in Delhi, on June 19, 2016.

Ishaant's fiancee has played for India in many International tournaments, while her sister Prashanti had captained the team.

Another sister Akankshaa is now a member of the national team, while elder sibling Priyenka works as a trainer in Patiala.

Sharma and Pratima have been known to each other for the past couple of years, and they were reportedly sharing a good rapport.

The 6'5'' pacer took his official Twitter handle to share the photo of his engagement, and quickly it was trolled by one of his friends and squad member, Rohit Sharma.

A funny Rohit messaged Ishant by saying that he should have trimmed his trademark lengthy hair at least in this auspicious moment.


He also wished all the best to the twosome who will shortly tie the knot.

At this time, readers should understand that Rohitt was also engaged recently to his girlfriend, Riteka Sajdah.

The tall, fast bowler is now not the part of the Indian cricket squad which is currently touring Zimbabwe for three ODIs and 3 T20s. The young gentleman is trying hard to affirm his spot for the West Indies series which will happen early after the African visit.

Ishant faced lots of criticisms in the initial months of 2015, as he continuously failed to keep up his momentum in bowling.

But later, under the captaincy of Viraat Kohli, the pacer regained his form and picked 13 wickets from three outings.

But he disappointed poorly in the recently concluded IPL, as he played only three games under the leadership of Dhoni for the Pune Giants.

Ishant fans all over the world are quite excited about the engagement news, and they are liking the pictures through social media sites like Facebook.

Sharma will make an official statement on the wedding date soon. He will get married in the last month of this year.

The 27-year-old star made his debut in Bangladesh, and from then, he is considered to be an integral part of Men In Blue.
