Sarkar, who tied the knot with 19-year-old Prionti Debnath on February 26, 2020 (Wednesday), had taken a short break from cricket to start a new innings in his life. But unfortunately, Sarkar couldn’t avoid embarrassment even on his D-Day after mobile phones of several members of the bridegroom’s family were stolen from the marriage ceremony. Reports in Bangladesh even claimed that police had to be called to the club where Sarkar’s marriage was taking place to calm down the situation and bring things to control.
