“H̶i̶t̶c̶h̶e̶d̶ 𝘚𝘬𝘪𝘥𝘥𝘦𝘥!” – Prasidh Krishna gets engaged to Rachana, RR share beautiful photo of the couple
Rajasthan Royals (RR) pacer Prasidh Krishna got engaged to Rachana Krishna on Tuesday, June 6.
RR shared a lovely photo of the couple on social media, showing Prasidh lifting Rachana during the engagement ceremony. The couple opted for ethnic wear for the traditional ceremony.
The IPL franchise captioned the Instagram post:
“H̶i̶t̶c̶h̶e̶d̶ 𝘚𝘬𝘪𝘥𝘥𝘦𝘥! Congratulations @skiddyy, and welcome to the Royals fam @rachana_krishna!”
Not much is known about Rachana Krishna, who has a private Instagram account.
On the professional front, Prasidh Krishna missed the entire IPL 2023 due to a lumbar stress fracture. This came after the Royals retained him for Rs 10 crore ahead of the mini-auction, as he had starred with the ball during the IPL 2022 campaign.
Krishna picked up 19 wickets in 17 games at an economy rate of 8.29 as RR reached the final in that edition.
Sandeep Sharma replaced him in the Royals squad for the 2023 season.
Krishna hasn’t played competitive cricket since India’s ODI tour of Zimbabwe in August 2022. He suffered the injury after the 50-over series.
Krishna was recommended surgery after he failed to recover from his injury in January despite a brief stint at the National Cricket Academy (NCA). He went under the knife in February earlier this year.
The 27-year-old is currently on his path to rehabilitation ahead of the 2023 ODI World Cup.
During his short stint with Team India, the right-arm pacer made a difference in the middle overs with his height, pace, and hard lengths. He scalped 25 wickets in 14 ODIs, including two fifers against England and West Indies.
Prasidh Krishna’s RR finished fifth in IPL 2023 points table
Rajasthan Royals (RR) failed to qualify for the IPL 2023 playoffs by the finest of margins (two points). The Jaipur-based franchise finished fifth with 14 points in seven games.
In Prasidh Krishna’s absence, Sandeep Sharma failed to live up to the expectations barring their game against the Chennai Super Kings (CSK). He returned with 10 wickets in 12 games at an economy rate of 8.60.
