Cricketer Manoj Tiwary ties the knot

New Delhi: India batsman Manoj Tiwary tied the knot with girlfriend Sushmita Roy in a ceremony in Howrah on Thursday.

Tiwary, who also plays for the Kolkata Knight Riders in the Indian Premier League, is currently sidelined with a knee injury that is expected to keep him out of competitive cricket for nearly four months. Tiwary spoke about his relationship openly for the first time last year. The batsman reportedly met Sushmita about six years ago through a common friend. The duo was spotted partying during the New Year's Eve.

During last year's IPL, Tiwari smashed a six of Mumbai Indians pacer Lasith Malinga and according to the batsman, the big-hit was an answer to Sushmita, who had doubted his abilities against the maverick Sri Lankan bowler.

Tiwary has played 8 ODIs for India and has a best score of 104 not out against the West Indies.
