New Delhi: India’s 2011 World Cup hero Yuvraj Singh, who is set to marry fiancee and Bollywood actress Hazel Keech, reached Parliament today to invite Prime Minister Narendra Modi and other ministers for his wedding scheduled on November 29.
Yuvraj and Hazel got engaged in a low-key affair in Bali, Indonesia earlier this year. But according to reports, the star cricketer has planned a grand wedding, wherein all the who’s who from the field of Bollywood, sports and politics are expected to be in attendance.
Yuvraj Singh last played for India in the ICC World T20 held at home earlier this year. The 34-year-old has been part of India’s title-winning campaigns in the 2007 ICC World T20, where he famously hit England’s Stuart Broad for six sixes in an over, and in 2011 World Cup, where he was adjudged the Man of the Series.
The Punjab southpaw is a champion in his own right, fought and defeated cancer, and inspired a whole generation of youngsters by making a comeback to international cricket after his bout with the deadly disease.
However, the important question is whether Yuvraj has been able to withdraw Rs 2.5 lakh from the bank for his wedding. The Government of India, in its demonetisation move, has placed a daily cap on withdrawals from ATMS and banks. Only those getting married can withdraw up to Rs. 2.5 lakh.
Yuvraj is set to join Indian teammates Suresh Raina, Harbhajan Singh and Rohit Sharma, who have recently got married.
