Rajat Patidar made four appearances for RCB but the Madhya Pradesh batsman failed to impress. As a result, he was not picked from the auction. But Luvnith Sisodia’s injury forced RCB to look for a backup. Furthermore, Anuj Rawat’s loss of form propelled him to the Playing XI.

“We have chosen a girl from Ratlam for him. The plan was to get him married on May 9. It was supposed to be a small function and I had booked a hotel too in Indore,” Manohar Patidar, Rajat’s father, told The New Indian Express.

Initially, the wedding was planned for Diwali after the domestic season. But the auction snub meant, his family advanced the dates only to call it off again at the last minute.

“The marriage was not supposed to be a grand affair, so we didn’t get invitation cards printed. I have booked a hotel for limited guests but the booking has been advanced as we plan to hold the function in July once he is free from his responsibility with the Madhya Pradesh Ranji team,” the Manohar said.
