Karachi Kings' batter Kieron Pollard has temporarily parted ways with the team to attend the grand wedding of Indian tycoon Mukesh Ambani's son in India. The cricket star secured a four-day leave from Karachi Kings for the occasion and is expected to arrive in Jamnagar, India, today.

Sources revealed that besides Indian cricketers, international players are also set to join the extravagant wedding festivities of Anant Ambani. Notably, Pollard had previously represented the Mumbai Indians in the Indian Premier League (IPL) for an extended period.

Karachi Kings is scheduled to face Multan Sultans in their upcoming Pakistan Super League (PSL) match on March 3. The temporary departure of Pollard for the high-profile wedding highlights the intersection of sports and glamour, particularly in the context of the renowned Ambani family, known for hosting opulent celebrations.

Mukesh Ambani's previous daughter's wedding in 2018 was a lavish affair, reportedly costing around $100 million, featuring receptions in Rajasthan, Mumbai, and Lake Como in Italy, complete with a performance by American pop star Beyoncé. 

The upcoming wedding for Ambani's youngest son, 28-year-old Anant Ambani, is anticipated to surpass previous extravagance.
