Rajasthan Royals (RR) all-rounder Shivam Dube has tied the knot with his girlfriend. The 28-year-old shared picture of his wedding ceremony on his official social media account on Friday.
Along with images from the wedding function, Shivam Dube also shared an emotional message. He wrote:
“We loved with a love which was more than love… And now this is where our forever starts. Just Married … 16-07-2021 #togetherforever.”
Indian cricketers Shreyas Iyer, Siddhesh Lad and Priyank Panchal were among those who congratulated Shivam Dube by replying to the post shared by the all-rounder.
The newly-married cricketer played six matches for Rajasthan Royals in IPL 2021. He scored 145 runs at a strike rate of 117.88 with a best of 46. He failed to claim a single wicket with his medium-pace bowling.
Overall, Shivam Dube has featured in 21 IPL games and has scored 314 runs at a strike rate of 120.30. He also has four wickets to his name at an economy rate of 8.19.
Shivam Dube has played one ODI and 13 T20Is for India

His highest of 54 came against West Indies in Thiruvananthapuram in December 2019. Shivam Dube hit three fours and four sixes in his 30-ball knock. His effort, however, was in vain as India lost the match by eight wickets.
