After Manoj Tiwary, India and Bengal cricketer Ashok Dinda on Monday tied knot with his girlfriend Sreyasi Rudra at Chinsurah in Hooghly district.
The 29-year-old cricketer had earlier told that it was not love at first sight for them, when they met at a friend's place four years ago.
Dinda said: "We met again after a few years at a party and I liked her, but we did not exchange numbers. After our third meeting, I took her number from a friend and we kept in touch."
He added, "She is the most sober girl I've ever met. I made her meet my mom one and half years ago. I gave her hints about my feelings then, but she brushed me off. I kept pursuing her till she gave in."
Sreyasi is a software engineer by profession, and they decided to marry during this year's Indian Premier League (IPL) tournament. A day in the month of July was fixed as it is a lean season for cricket in the country.
Dinda said, "Later, I would get busy with matches, so this was the best time."
Sreyasi, revealing her love for the sport said, "So, I had no option but to love cricket. Even my 86-year-old grandmother is mad about cricket."
