Marriage to Hazel has brought good luck to Yuvi: Shabnam
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.
