What's the story?
According to reports emerging from India Times, Indian speedster Bhuvneshwar Kumar is set to tie the knot with his fiancee Nupur Nagar on November 23.
The marriage is set to take place in his hometown of Meerut.
"The wedding will take place in Meerut and it will be attended by family and close friends. But we want Bhuvneshwar's teammates and members of the Board to also take part in celebrations, which is why we will have a reception in Delhi for them. We are sure everybody will attend it because the entire team will be in Delhi from November 30 for the Sri Lanka series," said his father.
In case you didn't know...
The Indian cricket team is taking on Sri Lanka in a three-match Test series which begins on November 16. While the first Test is taking place at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata, the second Test is set to take place in Nagpur between November 24-28.
If the reports are to be believed, Bhuvi will surely miss the second Test.
His father also confirmed that a second reception will take place in Bulandshahr, the town his fiancée hails from. A final reception will take place on November 30 in New Delhi where Bhuvi's Indian teammates are set to be in attendance.
There has been no official announcement from Bhuvi or the BCCI regarding the confirmed dates for his wedding.
If the dates are finalised, Bhuvi will most likely be back for the third and final Test in Delhi.
After achieving great success on the field, Bhuvneshwar Kumar is all set to begin a new chapter in his personal life. This is great news for the 27-year-old, who is one of India's best bowlers currently.
However, he will most likely be missing out on the action in the second Test. It will be interesting to see who takes his place. Ishant Sharma will most likely be given a chance in his absence.
