Sri Lanka captain Angelo Mathews has been banned from the first two ODIs against South Africa, but the 26-year-old still had plenty of reason to cheer off the field, as he married long-time girlfriend Heshani Silva in a Colombo church on Thursday evening.
Sri Lanka President Mahinda Rajapaksa and Defence Secretary Gotabhaya Rajapaksa signed as the witnesses to the marriage, News360.lk reported. Apart from family and friends, members of the national team were also present at the wedding.
Mathews was handed a two-match ban for his team's slow over-rates in the recently concluded Tri-Nation Series in West Indies.
TIWARY MARRIES LONG-TIME GIRLFRIEND
India cricketer Manoj Tiwary has tied the knot with long-time sweetheart Sushmita Roy.
Tiwary, who has played eight One-Day Internationals and three Twenty20 Internationals for India, married Roy at a hush-hush ceremony at the Howrah Country Club on Thursday.
The couple first met seven years back through a common friend and have been dating since, an IANS report said.
Tiwary’s career has been plagued by recurrent injuries and it remains to be seen whether lady luck now smiles on him following his marriage.
