The stage is set for India’s most loved cricketer Yuvraj Singh to tie the nuptial knot with model-turned-actress Hazel Keech on November 30. Yuvraj will finally head for a new chapter in his life after the numerous affairs he has  had over the years. The fact cannot be ignored that Yuvraj has been a darling of the masses. His good looks and flamboyant batting style had already swept the feet of many young ladies, but Yuvraj finally found solace in Hazel. His alleged affairs were mostly with Bollywood beauties. Be it during the Indian Premier League (IPL) or hush-hush meetings in lounges, Yuvraj has been through it all. As Yuvraj will walk the aisle in two days’ time, here is a look-back at the cricketer’s glamorous life:

Kim Sharma faces wrath of Shabnam Singh: The ‘Mohabbatein’-fame girl Kim Sharma  is the lady with whom Yuvraj had longest affair. He was rumoured dating Kim at the early days of his cricketing career. Kim, cousin of Arjun Rampal, was apparently not welcomed by Yuvraj’s mother Shabnam Singh. That eventually ended their four-year long relationship.

A short-lived innings: If not Kim Sharma, Yuvraj settled for the other ‘ ‘Mohabbatein’ actress Preeti Jhangiani. They dated for a while which was a short-lived innings. As the usual statement goes, none of them agreed of their supposed relationship and that was the end of this story.

‘Extra-innings’ with  Preity Zinta: All know Yuvraj was a part of Kings XI Punjab until 2013.  Preity Zinta and Ness Wadia, the owners of the IPL franchise, were in serious relationship for a long time. They were even staying together. With rift between the two, an extra-innings was witnessed between Preity and Yuvraj. Although the two denied any relation between them apart from friendship, the sources believed that all was true indeed.

Tabloids, social media all spoke about their relationship. However, Preity was irked by the allegations and took over Twitter to express her resentment.

Grace, Yuvraj Singh and Vivek Oberoi? There was no news over Grace, but this South Africa surfer was spotted with Yuvraj in Goa.  Whether there was any truth to this or not, remains doubtful till date. If the grapevines are to be believed, Grace and Vivek Oberoi  were the topic of discussion and not Yuvraj-Grace in a matter of few days.

The sports connection: Sports  do have a connection with heart was known by many but  they also connect two hearts was witnessed when Bollywood’s diva Deepika Padukone hosted a grand party on cricketer’s birthday. Deepika also attended cricket matches to see Yuvraj play. As soon as the two parted ways, Ranbir Kapoor happened to Deepika and Yuvraj was a loner again.

The bong connection: Yuvraj fell for another tinsel town diva Riya sen soon after his break-up with Deepika Padukone. Yuvraj met Munmun Sen’s daughter at a party and the two could not set their eyes off each other. The relationship that began steadily did not flourish in the long-run.

The IPL innings continued: Aanchal Kumar and Anushka Dandekar, who were anchors of the IPL seasons until 2012, were also caught under the web of allegations with Yuvraj. He first got close to Aanchal Kumar during the IPL parties. However, the rumours remained under the carpet and not much  was spoken about this.

Anushka Dandekar built a special relation with Yuvraj after the cricketer attended the release event of the former’s international track launch in Mumbai. There was surety of the two being together and they even attended parties together of other celebrities before they broke up

Lip and locked: The ‘Bachna ae Haseeno’ actress Minisha Lamba struck a major controversy in 2011. The picture of Minisha Lamba and Yuvraj kissing each other went viral. However, the speculations were put down when the actress claimed it was her ‘lookalike’. How realistic!

Last but not the least: The gossip mongers had enough on the plate to talk about Yuvraj and his alleged affairs. It was about time Yuvraj found the right one. At Sophie Choudhary’s birthday party in 2014, Yuvraj met Bollywood actress Neha Dhupia. Since then they were spotted together in many events. However, like many other affairs, this was labelled as ‘just friends’-thing. It ultimately  led to no relation at all.

And Hazel said ‘Yes’: All’s well that ends well! For Yuvraj he finally found the right one in 2015 and ended all the  rumours circulating around his relationships. With a picture on his social media account, Yuvraj confirmed his marriage plans and put a ring on Hazel’s finger at Bali. In an interview, Yuvraj also claimed that he sees his mother’s reflection in Hazel and found a friend for life.
