Hazel Keech, who has been a part of big-budget movies like Bodyguard and Kick, tied the knot with Yuvraj Singh in 2016.
Yuvraj Singh, who was critical of India’s success in the 2007 and 2011 World Cups, retired from the sport in 2019. His international career span was almost 19 years during which he played numerous match-winning knocks for team India. He was the glue in India’s middle-order which the Indian team lacks now.
Yuvraj’s last international game came in 2017 against West Indies after which he was never picked in the side again. Yuvraj’s last appearance in the IPL was in 2019 when he was a part of Mumbai Indians’ title-winning campaign.
