[dropcap]M[/dropcap]UMBAI – Yuvraj Singh gets engaged to actress Hazel Keech in Bali, India’s 2011 World Cup architect Yuvraj Singh got engaged to his girlfriend Hazel Keech in a surprise engagement ceremony in Bali on Wednesday.
Few days ago it was reported that Yuvi hinted about his marriage on microblogging site Twitter during a conversation with Harbhajan Singh. Hazel Keech is a former Bigg Boss contestant. She played the role of Kareena Kapoor’s best friend and Salman Khan’s wife in ‘Bodyguard’.
Yuvraj and Hazel attended Harbhajan and UK-born Bollywood actress Geeta Basra’s reception in Delhi and attracted a lot of shutterbugs. There were rumours going around the corner.
Both Yuvraj and Hazel were dating each other since a long time and the two had kept their relationship status under wraps to avoid unwanted attention.
Yuvraj Singh last played for India in the final of the World T20 in April 2014. And despite strong performances in the domestic circuit, luck hasn’t really favoured the left-handed all-rounder as he has failed to make a comeback to the national team.
But father Yograj Singh believes that marriage to Hazel Keech, which is expected to take place in January, will change his son’s fortunes and he will return to the national fold.
Yograj, who was introduced to Hazel by Yuvraj, says that he is really impressed by his son’s choice and feels that he will definitely make a comeback to the national team.
“I was introduced to her by Yuvraj and she is a very nice girl. I am confident that marrying her will change his fortunes and he will return to the national squad. He definitely has it in him to represent India. It is sad how Mahendra Singh Dhoni spoilt his international career. The same had happened to me when my friend Kapil Dev had destroyed my India career,” he said.
