Chennai Super Kings (CSK) batsman Ruturaj Gaikwad tied the knot with Utkarsha Pawar, who is said to be his longtime girlfriend, on Saturday. The ceremony took place at Le Méridien Mahabaleshwar and Gaikwad also shared glimpses of it on social media.
“From the pike to the altar, our journey begins!” wrote Gaikwad.
Other cricketers and their better halves poured their wishes on the comments section, which included his former and current CSK teammates.
Gaikwad recently won the Indian Premier League (IPL) title and was also part of India’s World Test Championship (WTC) squad as a standby member. However, he was replaced by Yashasvi Jaiswal as he was getting married in the first week of June.

According to reports, Utkarsha is also a cricketer and plays for Maharashtra. Also based in Pune, she was recently seen posing with the IPL trophy with her husband and CSK captain MS Dhoni.
Meanwhile, Gaikwad’s teammate Shivam Dube and Prashant Solanki attended the wedding as seen in the pictures available on the social media.
Gaikwad had a good outing in the recently concluded edition of IPL where he finished as the seventh highest run scorer. He amassed 590 runs from 15 innings and provided CSK with solid start at the top with fellow opener Devon Conway.
