New Delhi: Amidst the hectic schedule of the Indian Premier League, India and Delhi Daredevils pacer Umesh Yadav got formally engaged to Delhi based fashion designer Tania Wadhwa in a quiet ceremony in Nagpur on Monday.

Umesh, who is an important member of the Daredevils set-up took a day off from the team`s training schedule in Bangalore to fly back home for the engagement.

The 26-year-old will marry Tania on May 29 once the IPL gets over.

"We met in Delhi and then our friendship grew... And then I proposed her. We decided to get married after a year`s courtship and our families agreed," Umesh said after the engagement ceremony.

While one expects `Lady Luck` to help him perform better in IPL, Umesh and Tania definitely wouldn`t mind a `Cricket Honeymoon` if the pacer gets selected for the Champions Trophy in England which is slated to be held just after the IPL.
