India pace bowler Jasprit Bumrah on Monday got married to TV sports presenter Sanjana Ganesan at a private ceremony in Goa, where a limited number of people were present. Bumrah on Monday tweeted the pictures of his wedding and wrote a Kahlil Gibran -- a Lebanese American writer -- quote on his timeline: "Love, if it finds you worthy, directs your course."
Bumrah further added on his timeline, "Steered by love, we have begun a new journey together. Today is one of the happiest days of our lives and we feel blessed to be able to share the news of our wedding and our joy with you."
"The wedding was attended by about 50, mostly family and relatives of the boy and girl, and was held at a resort here," an acquaintance of Bumrah said.
