Look what Suresh has to say about Priyanka and their marriage:
Raina, once in an interview with ‘The Times of India’ revealed, “The best thing is that the match has been decided by my mom,” and added about the venue of his wedding: “We chose Delhi for the wedding venue as 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 teammates from the UP team are coming).”
IBN reported Raina as saying: “I have known Priyanka for long, but in the middle, I didn’t have time to be in touch with her. I remember meeting her at the airport for five minutes in 2008. She was flying back to Holland (where she currently works) and I was going to Bangalore for an IPL game, and we met at the Delhi airport for just five minutes. Usse pehle main usse bachpan mein mila tha (before that we met during our childhood).”
“She doesn’t know much about cricket. She is a great soccer fan. She is a huge fan of Messi and Robin van Persie. She loves me for what I am and not because I am a cricketer. She is a very nice girl and I love her,” Suresh in an interview with IBN.
