New Delhi: In the last one year or so, many Indian cricketers have got married. And now another Indian cricketer, Manoj Tiwary, tied the knot on Thursday with his girlfriend Sushmita Roy at Howrah.

According to reports, Tiwary first met Sushmita about six years ago through a common friend. Since then they have been sported regularly in public places. The 27-year-old, who also plays for the Kolkata Knight Riders in the Indian Premier League, is currently nursing his knee injury which will take another few months to heel.

A promising Indian batsman, Tiwary has played 8 ODIs for India and has a high score of 104 not out against the West Indies.

During last year`s IPL, Tiwary smashed a six off 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. Hopefully his marriage will prove lucky for him and this talented lad from Kolkata will manage to cement his place in the Indian team.
