The couple will have both Sikh and Hindu ceremonies at their marriage. Cricketer Yuvraj Singh and Hazel Keech are going to tie the knot.
The fairytale romance between cricketer Yuvraj Singh and actress Hazel Keech has turned a fresh chapter with the couple readying to tie the knot on Wednesday, 30 November 2016, in a gurudwara ceremony.
Yuvraj and Hazel met at a party in 2011, and the cricketer recently told HT Brunch in an interview, that he was immediately taken by her smile. However, despite a pleasant chat, during which he complimented her on her role in Bodyguard, Hazel didn’t respond to his invitations for coffee dates.
It was only in 2014 that Hazel did agree to go out with Yuvraj, and clearly, this time round, Cupid found his mark because after dating for a while, the couple got engaged in Bali.
“Yes, I am engaged ’cause I found a friend for life in Hazel,” Yuvraj announced on Twitter, while his ladylove responded with: “I am so thankful to have found such an amazing person”.

The wedding details
Yuvraj and Hazel have both stayed fairly quiet about their wedding details. We do know that an invite was sent to Prime Minister Narendra Modi. We do know that the couple is going in for two ceremonies: a Sikh one at Baba Ram Singh Ganduan Wale’s dera in Duffera (the Singhs consider the Baba their spiritual leader) this afternoon (30 November), followed by a Hindu ceremony in laidback Goa on 2 December. A reception has been planned in Delhi for 7 December.
Yuvraj wanted to wrap up the wedding ceremonies before his 35th birthday on 12 December.
