Yuvraj Singh is officially engaged to be married. In a private ceremony in Bali on Wednesday 11 November, Yuvraj got engaged to British model and actress Hazel Keech in a low key affair.
The pair have known each other for over three years now, but only started dating three months back, media reports suggest. Hazel's father belongs to England, while her mother is from Mauritius.
Yuvraj's engagement comes just days after his former teammate Harbhajan Singh tied the knot with actress Geeta Basra at a ceremony in Delhi. Linked to actresses Kim Sharma and Deepika Padukone in 2008, Yuvraj's father Yograj Singh said:
"I am confident that marrying her (Hazel) will change his fortunes and he will return to the national squad."
