Varun Chakravarthy, the Indian spin prodigy, tied the knots with his long-term girlfriend Neha Khedekar on Friday, December 12 in a ceremony that took place in Chennai. The couple was set to enter the wedlock earlier this year, but the COVID-19 pandemic made sure that proceedings got delayed. When the lockdowns were in place, they were staying in different places.
Even as Varun was stranded in Chennai, his area is marked as a containment zone around May-June, Neha spent her time in Mumbai. Kolkata Knight Riders, for whom Varun plays in the IPL, shared a video and congratulated the duo on the auspicious occasion.
In the clip, the 29-year-old Varun was spotted bowling some underarm deliveries to Neha amidst the cheers of their family and relatives.
“Big congratulations to @chakaravarthyvarun and @neha.khedekar from the Knight Riders Family as they begin their journey as husband and wife,“ the Knight Riders wrote.
“Neha seen successfully decoding Varun’s mystery here with a stylish square-cut off the last delivery,“ KKR added.

Varun Chakravarthy coming up the ranks
Varun Chakravarthy made his way through from the Tamil Nadu Premier League. Thereafter in 2019, he was picked to play for the Kings XI Punjab, who secured his services at a hefty price. He was being deemed as a mystery spinner, but he got to play in a solitary match against KKR where Sunil Narine took him to the cleaners in the mandatory powerplay.
KXIP released him and from there on, KKR picked him up. For the Men in Gold and Purple, he turned out to be the standout bowler in the 2020 edition. He got quite a few wickets, including a five-wicket haul against Delhi Capitals. He garnered loads of praises from the cricket fraternity.
On the back of his stupendous performances, he was called up to the Indian T20I team for the tour of Australia. But to his dismay, he was ruled out due to a shoulder injury. Varun plied his trade as an architect before he found his feet on the 24 yards. He will now be looking to scale more heights in cricket at the professional level.
