Top India players have shown the way this season by taking time out to feature in white-ball domestic tournaments on a regular basis. The likes of R Ashwin, Mayank Agarwal, Manish Pandey, KL Rahul among others have managed their packed schedule well to play for their respective states in Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy and Vijay Hazare Trophy.
On Sunday, Karnataka captain Manish Pandey made sure he was there for his state team in the big Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy final. Manish is getting married to Indian film actor, Ashrita Shetty on Monday in Mumbai.
Ashrita Shetty, 26, has predominantly featured in Tamil films. She rose to fame after working in Udhayam NH4 alongside Siddharth and also featured in Oru Kanniyum Moonu Kalavanigalum and Indrajith among other films.
“Looking forward to the India series, but before that there is another important series for me, I am getting married tomorrow,” Manish Pandey, who has been picked for India’s limited-overs series against West Indies, said after Karnataka’s win.
“We [Karnataka] won it last year but this year the victory was a lot sweeter. The way the boys played the entire tournament has been unbelievable. Everyone has put in so much effort that I thought it was a very good game. It came neck to neck but we deserved it.”
