Ishant Sharma’s engagement with Pratima Singh has taken social media by storm as it came as a surprise for many cricket fans as he was never in the news with his personal life matters, unlike other cricketers.
The player who was engaged to Delhi-based Basketball player Pratima Singh had quite a long love story leading to their engagement. The 27-year old who is very aggressive on the field against his opponents is a very caring person according to his fiancee Pratima as he shares their love story.
“He’s the most decent guy around and extremely caring. We have been dating for quite a few years and I feel he’s the best guy in the world,” Pratima was quoted by TOI as saying.
Pratima also says Ishant is a very romantic guy as she recalls the moment when the pace bowler proposed her. “Oh, he’s the most romantic guy in the world. But only I’m privy to that aspect of his personality. He proposed to me in a car with roses and gifts,” she added.
However, it was Pratima’s elder sister Akanksha Singh, captain of Indian women basketball team that helped the couple to go ahead.
“Ishant met my sister three years ago when my friend and I had organised a basketball tournament for women players in Delhi. Ishant had come along with my friend. We are five siblings (four sisters and one brother) and extremely close.
“So, when Ishant asked her out for the first time, Pratima, who is the innocent darling of the house, came running to me to ask if it was alright. Ishant is a decent guy so I gave a go ahead because I trusted him.
“I’m glad that they are going to tie the knot. It will be a December wedding, though the date hasn’t been finalised yet,” said Akanksha Singh.
Ishant Sharma and Pratima Singh were engaged on Sunday (19th June) as wishes poured him from all over India including his teammates.
