Hitesh Modi gets married
Hitesh, son of Subhash Modi, one of the leading umpires in Kenya married Sharmillee Saujani at the Kadwa Patidar Hall in Harrow, north London in a traditional Hindu ceremony that was attended by dozens of people from the two sides of the relationship.
Modi stepped into the shoes of Steve Tikolo immediately after the team returned home from the ICC Champions Trophy in England. Hitesh's father, a former chairman of the Kenya Cricket Umpires and Scorers Association (KCUSA), read tributes of his son from the cricketing community the world over, including personal messages from India captain Sourav Ganguly and his Pakistan counterpart.
Hitesh and his newly wedded wife flew to the Indian Ocean island of Mauritius for their honeymoon.
