Numerous admirers and fellow cricketers poured their heartfelt congratulations on the couple, and the post has garnered more than 30,000 likes on Instagram.

Tewatia’s recent appearance was in the IPL a few months ago, when his team, the Gujarat Titans, experienced a heart-wrenching defeat in the final against the Chennai Super Kings (CSK) in Ahmedabad.

Rahul Tewatia, who made his debut for Haryana in 2013, has seen limited opportunities in first-class and List-A cricket. Despite having respectable first-class figures of 17 wickets in seven matches at an average of 30, he hasn’t been a regular in red-ball cricket since 2020. In List-A cricket, he has been more prominent, participating in 30 matches and taking 44 wickets at an impressive average of 23.81. Tewatia has excelled with the bat in the 50-over format, averaging 36.15 with a strike rate exceeding 115.

However, his primary strength lies in T20 cricket, both domestically and in the IPL. He has impressive stats as a batsman and bowler in the shortest format, with a batting average of 26.66 and a strike rate of 142.72, along with 68 wickets in 128 T20 games. Even more remarkable is how he evolved during his IPL career. Initially, he began as a bowling all-rounder in his early seasons but later developed into a specialized finisher in recent editions.

In the 2020 IPL season with the Rajasthan Royals, Rahul Tewatia boasted an average of 42.50 in 14 matches, along with a strike rate of 139.34. His impressive performances led to his first call-up to the Indian T20I squad for the home series against England in 2021.

Tewatia’s reputation as a cool and effective finisher continued to grow during his two seasons with the Gujarat Titans in 2022 and 2023. In these seasons, the left-hander accumulated over 300 runs in 33 matches at a remarkable strike rate of nearly 150, often making game-changing contributions.

Given the nickname “Iceman” for his ability to deliver magical finishes, Tewatia played a pivotal role in the Titans’ victory in their debut IPL season last year and their qualification for this season’s final.

Despite evolving into a destructive batter and a part-time bowler in the IPL, Tewatia still managed to secure 32 wickets in 81 games, maintaining an economy rate of less than eight runs per over.
