Last updated on: July 05, 2010 19:29 IST

MS DhoniIndia cricket captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni tied the knot with childhood friend Sakshi Singh Rawat on Sunday night in a private ceremony attended only by family members and close friends, including a few of his team-mates, at a farmhouse in Dehradun.

The 28-year-old wicketkeeper-batsman got engaged to Sakshi, a 23-year-old hotel management student, at a private ceremony on Saturday.

The wedding, at the picturesque Vishranti Resorts in Bidhauli, about 25km from Dehradun, was strictly a private affair with only 50-60 close relatives from the families of the bride and groom, along with some Indian players.

Harbhajan Singh, Ashish Nehra, RP Singh, Suresh Raina and Rohit Sharma were among Dhoni's cricketer friends present at the wedding, according to a family member who attended the ceremony.

BCCI secretary N Srinivasan, owner of Chennai Super Kings, which was led by Dhoni, and BCCI president Shashank Manohar also attended the ceremony.

The wedding had its share of glamour, with Dhoni's friend John Abraham and director-choreographer Farah Khan gracing the occasion.
