Crick­eter Yu­vraj Singh is back in form and how! The 35-year-old made spec­tac­u­lar 150 runs off 127 balls against Eng­land in the on­go­ing bi­lat­eral series, and his mother Shab­nam Singh is elated to see him play for the coun­try again. Yuvi last played the ODIs for Team In­dia in De­cem­ber 2013, against South Africa. “He has worked very hard. It’s been tough play­ing in small grounds, es­pe­cially when you’re used to big crowds... But the po­ten­tial was al­ways there. In­dia wanted him to play and with bless­ings, he has been able to come back,” she says.

Yuvi got mar­ried to ac­tor Hazel Keech in Novem­ber last year. Ask Shab­nam if lady luck was do­ing its magic, and she says, “Oh yes, mar­riage has brought good luck and sta­bil­ity in Yuvi’s life. Hazel is a lovely child and I’m glad she has come into his life.” Talk­ing about Hazel’s ex­cite­ment for the match, she adds: “Hazel was like this lit­tle kid who didn’t want to miss a sin­gle ball. She was on a flight, re­ally hassled about what’s hap­pen­ing on the ground.” And what was Yuvi’s re­ac­tion af­ter hit­ting a ton? “He was singing songs for me and Hazel,” she says.
