Indian fast bowler Shardul Thakur got engaged to his longtime girlfriend Mittali Parulkar on Monday. The same was confirmed in a video doing rounds on the internet before speculations had already started happening over the engagement set to happen on November 29.
The Chennai Super Kings pacer was part of the T20 World Cup squad and is currently enjoying an off time before being on the flight to South Africa for an away series which is currently on schedule despite the scare over the new mutant variant of Coronavirus.
It is further being reported that Shardul Thakur will not tie the knot as of now as he wants to focus on cricket. It is being learned that the couple is mulling to get married only after the T20 World Cup in 2022.
“There is a small engagement function at the Mumbai Cricket Association’s facility in BKC on Monday, for which he has invited 75-odd guests-mostly close friends and family members. The wedding is likely to take place after the T20 World Cup in Australia next year,” a source close to the player had told TOI before the video surfaced.

Earlier Shardul was spotted in a video shared by Rohit Sharma on his Instagram. The two along with Shreyas Iyer could be seen dancing to a Hindi song. “Well done @shreyas41 making all the right moves 🕺,” the Hitman captioned the video before the IPL 2022 retention.
Here is the video shared by Rohit featuring Iyer and Shardul:
While Rohit is likely to be retained by his franchise, there are reports suggesting that Shreyas Iyer has moved on from Delhi Capitals and will be in the auction pool this time around. Moreover, Shardul Thakur is also not in the retention radar as of now for Chennai Super Kings but is almost certain of keeping the franchises interested in buying him, thanks to his performances.
The retention deadline was set on November 30 and is currently on schedule despite reports suggesting it could be pushed back.
