Former India cricketer Arun Lal tied the knot with Bulbul Saha on May 2 in a private ceremony. The pictures of the couple’s wedding ceremony were floating on social media soon after they completed their marriage. The wedding took place at the Peerless Inn in Kolkata.
Bulbul Saha shared the pictures of their wedding on Facebook. The pictures were captioned saying, “Officially Mrs Lal. Thanks to my family and friends for supporting us,” Bulbul wrote as she shared several pictures of their wedding.
Arun Lal was a right-handed batter and played 16 Tests and 13 ODIs for the Indian Cricket team. Lal moved to Bengal in 1978 from Delhi as he got a job with a Tea company. But in First-Class cricket, the 66-year-old has played over 150 first-class games for Bengal and Delhi. Now Arun Lal is the coach of the Bengal Ranji Trophy team, which will play in the knockout stage of the tournament in June 2022.
In a recent interview with Sportskeeda, Arun Lal talked about how the current Bengal team has the potential to produce around 5-6 players who will play for India. He said, “Lots of them. Bengal cricket has two main objectives at this stage – one is to win major trophies and the other is to prepare a strong supply line for India A and the senior national team. Mukesh Kumar certainly deserves a national call-up. He’s not recognized enough for his performances. Shahbaz Ahmed is close to earning a national call-up.”
“Even Akash Deep has a great chance because he’s the fastest bowler in India at the moment and he moves the ball exceedingly well. In fact, when the ball gets old in the middle overs, he’s as good as any other bowler in the country. Abhimanyu is already there. Among the batters, I think Abhishek Porel is another great prospect. There are five or six of them.”
Lal also talked about how the association has brought in talent from various parts of the state. He said, “The C.A.B. [Cricket Association of Bengal] is doing a fabulous job in this regard. They have observers everywhere who submit their reports on a daily basis. Selectors travel to the districts to see matches.”
“Boys who are doing well at the district level are getting picked for the state-side in various age groups. A big thumbs up should go to Abhishek [Dalmiya], Raj [Snehasish Ganguly], Debu [Debabrata Das] and all the other administrators. I’m also very happy with the selection committee because they’re coming up with the right choices. I’ve never felt that there’s any favouritism anywhere,” he continued.
