Sanjana also shared the same tweet from her Twitter account.
The 27-year-old has been hailed as one of the world's best fast bowlers, taking an impressive 83 wickets from 19 Test matches at an average of 22.10. Bumrah has played 67 ODIs and taken 108 wickets at an average of 25.33. Since making his debut in 2018 against an India vs South Africa Test match, Bumrah has managed to become a regular feature of the squad, helping his team win many games courtesy of his lethal bowling.
Bumrah was left out of the T20 and the fourth Indian Test squad for the England series due to "personal reasons".
"He informed the BCCI (Board of Control for Cricket in India) that he is getting married and has taken the leave to help in preparations for the big day,” news agency ANI had quoted a BCCI source as saying.
Sanjana, 28, rose to prominence after working with the Indian Premier League (IPL) Kolkata Knight Riders and has presented several India matches. She was crowned Miss India in 2014 and went on to star in the reality TV show, MTV Splitsvilla.
Soon the marriage of both started trending on social media with people giving their blessings to the newly-wed couple and also sharing glimpses of their grand moment.
