Bengaluru: India cricketer Veda Krishnamurthy started a new innings in her life on Thursday January 12 when she tied the knot with Karnataka first class cricketer Arjun Hoysala.

Veda also remembered her late sister, saying, “Love you akka (sister).”

She also wrote to her partner Arjun, “Meri Jan ab Teri huyi, dhyan rakhna (my love I am yours now, take care of me).”
The wedding pictures uploaded by Veda on her Instagram handle have gone viral on social media.
