At the time when several young cricketers are dating girl friends and others doting their cute kids, one of the most successful Indian bowlers of all time Zaheer Khan (retired) has got engaged to his girl friend on Tuesday. Zaheer is engaged to model-and-actress Sagarika Ghatge, who shot to name with Shahrukh Khan’s Chak De India. In the pic, Sagarika Ghatge was seen flashing her dazzling engagement ring while the retired cricketer was all smiles. The beautiful couple have some plans to get married soon, but only after finishing the ongoing IPL season.

The two were spotted together at the wedding of Yuvraj Singh and Hazel Keech and the rumors 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 bought by Delhi during the eighth edition of IPL and has been with the franchise ever since. Zaheer announced his retirement from international and first-class cricket two years back as the country’s fourth-highest wicket-taker across formats.
The guest list for Zaheer-Sagarika’s engagement ceremony include Sachin Tendulkar & his wife Anjali, Virat Kohli & his girlfriend Anushka Sharma, Yuvraj Singh & his wife Hazel Keech, Rohit Sharma & his wife Ritika, Raveena Tandon, Prachi Desai and Mandira Bedi.
