While Indian leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal and pacer Mohammad Shami wrote: “Congratulations”, Hardik’s Mumbai Indians teammate Ishan Kishan wrote: “Congrats meri jaan”.
Hardik and Natasa announced their engagement on new year’s day when the all-rounder proposed to the Serbian actress on a yacht in Dubai.
Under normal circumstances, the cricketers would have been taking part in the 13th season of the Indian Premier League (IPL). However, the coronavirus outbreak has brought the cricketing world to a standstill, and the T20 league remains suspended indefinitely.
