The most anticipated wedding of Indian cricketer Yuvraj Singh and actress Hazel Keech is scheduled to take place on November 30 in his hometown, Chandigarh. Sources close to Yuvraj confirmed that the wedding would happen on November 30 and it is expected to be a private affair. The source also confirmed that the receptions are planned in the first week of December.
"The scheduled date of reception would be worked out between December 5 and 7. The wedding is happening on November 30," the source said.
Ever since Yuvraj got engaged to Keech at a private ceremony in Bali last November, their marriage has been the talk of the town and the couple has kept mum over the date of the wedding. The engagement was a low-key affair but his marriage is expected to be a big fat Indian wedding.
Both Yuvraj and Keech have been friends for the last 3-4 years but they started dating each other just three months before their engagement.
Yuvraj Singh is one of India’s greatest ever limited overs player as he led India to a win in the 2011 World Cup and also was the star of the 2007 World T20 which was won by the Men in Blue. Though he is out of the Indian cricket team, it is expected that the dashing southpaw will get a chance to prove himself in the upcoming ODI series against New Zealand.
Yuvraj was asked to undergo a fitness test at the National Cricket Academy in Bangalore and is in the reckoning to get a place in the ODI team. With a long home season ahead, coach Anil Kumble and the Indian team management are in favour of giving veteran cricketers a chance to prove themselves at the highest level. This is evident by the fact that opener Gautam Gambhir has been recalled into the Indian Test team in place of injured KL Rahul to take on the Kiwis in the second Test at Kolkata.
Yuvraj Singh last played an International match for India in the 2016 World T20 encounter against Australia at Mohali in which Yuvraj Singh had to retire hurt due to an injury and missed the semi-finals against West Indies. He later made a comeback during the Indian Premier League and helped his team, Sunrisers Hyderabad to win the tournament.Published 29 Sep 2016, 09:52 IST
