Star cricketer Suresh Raina tied the knot with fiancee Priyanka Chaudhary in a private ceremony at a posh Delhi hotel on Friday night.
According to reports, Team India captain MS Dhoni and his wife, Sakshi, were present on the occasion. The left-handed batsman's teammate in Chennai Super Kings, Dwayne Bravo (West Indies), and coach Stephen Fleming were in attendance. ICC chairman N Srinivasan also attended the event.
Priyanka is an IT professional with a bank in Amsterdam, Netherlands.
Sources said that both the families knew each other for a long time since Raina's and Priyanka's father worked together at an ordinance factory at Murad Nagar. Later, Priyanka's family shifted to Meerut.
