With K L Rahul taking a break from the white ball home series against New Zealand, it is all but confirmed that the batter is all set to tie the knot later this month.

As per reports, Rahul and Athiya Shetty will exchange wedding vows on January 23 at the actress's parents Mana and Suniel Shetty's bungalow in Khandala, Maharashtra.

Team-mate Axar Patel is also set to marry girlfriend Meha Patel. The couple got engaged on Axar's birthday, January 20, last year and are likely to get married on the same date. 'K L Rahul and Axar Patel were unavailable for the New Zealand home series due to family commitments,' BCCI stated.

Rahul and Axar were not picked for the ODI and T20I series against New Zealand, starting on January 18.
