Captain of the Delhi Daredevils and former spearhead of Team India’s bowling attack, Zaheer Khan, on Monday announced his engagement with girlfriend Sagarika Ghatge, who shot to fame with her role in the movie Chak De India.
“Never laugh at your wife’s choices. You are one of them. Partners for life!!! #engaged,” Zaheer wrote on his twitter handle, after putting up a picture with the ‘Chak De! India’ actress.
The 38-year-old Zaheer represented India in 92 Test matches, picking 311 wickets, which makes him the fourth highest wicket taker for India in Test cricket. He also picked up 269 wickets in 194 ODIs for India.
Zaheer Khan was the joint highest wicket taker in the 2011 ICC World Cup, a tournament that India went on to win.
The two were spotted together at the wedding of Yuvraj Singh and Hazel Keech and the rumours of them dating had been doing the rounds for a while.
The Zaheer-led franchise is currently sixth in the points table with just two wins from six appearances. He has played 95 IPL matches so far and is one short of his 100th wicket.
He was later bought by Delhi during the eighth edition of IPL and has been with the franchise ever since.
Zaheer Khan was earlier linked with another starlet, Isha Sharvani of Kisna fame.
