Indian cricketer Suresh Raina is all set to tie the knot to his childhood friend Priyanka Chowdhary at a posh hotel in New Delhi today. Explaining that he chose the wedding venue to be Delhi because many of their friends and family live here, Raina told The Times Of India, "We have chosen the venue in Delhi since I have lots of friends here. Virat Kohli, Shikhar Dhawan, Ishant Sharma aur meri UP ki team ke bahut saare players hain, jo sab aa rahe hain (many of my team-mates from UP team are coming)."

"The best thing is that this particular match has been decided by my mom," Raina joked.

PTI reports that Priyanka and Raina's friendship dates back to their childhood days. Priyanka is presently working in The Netherlands.

Raina is a part of Chennai Super Kings, who are scheduled to kick start their campaign in the eighth edition of Indian Premier League on April 9, barely six days after his wedding.
