KL Rahul Turns Up the Heat as Buddy Mayank Agarwal Ties the Knot

New Delhi: Known as much for his swag off the field as his batting skills on it, India opener KL Rahul attended Karnataka teammate Mayank Agarwal's wedding on Monday. And as always, he was spot on with his dressing as he wore a waist coat and matched it up with a turban to up the style quotient. Mayank got hitched to his long-time girlfriend Aashita Sood.

Rahul’s photos were posted on Twitter by his fan club and read: “@klrahul11 Enjoying At @mayankcricket Wedding! His Post
"Celebrating @mayankcricket ‘s and @aashitasood09 ’s big day!Friends like family, blessed with the best! #AshKaroMayank"
#KLRahul #KLRahulClub #MayankAgarwal”

Having spent some quality time away from the game after the end of this edition of the Indian Premier League, Rahul will now start preparing for India’s historic Test against Afghanistan. For the one-off Test, The Afghanistan Cricket Board (ACB) announced a spin-heavy 16-member squad.

The squad comprises five spinners in Mohammad Nabi, Rashid Khan, Mujeeb Ur Rahman, Zahir Khan and left-arm spinner Hamza Kotak, who incidentally emerged as the leading wicket-taker in the recently concluded first-class competition.

Rashid and Mujeeb also had fruitful campaigns in the IPL playing for Sunrisers Hyderabad and Kings XI Punjab respectively. Commenting on his strategy, the right-hand batsman said: "Apart from IPL sensations Rashid and young Mujeeb ur Rahman, the other two spinners are chinaman Zahir Khan and left-arm orthodox Amir Hamza Hotak are the ones to watch out for.

"Rashid and Mujeeb have made the entire world sit up and take notice of their talent in the shortest format, but I feel the duo is set to face a different battle in the test format. Strategy will be to work on our strengths as a team and give our best."
