India‘s limited-overs pace spearhead, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, is set to tie the knot with fiancee Nupur Nagar by the end of November 2017. The lanky pacer will get married in a private ceremony in Meerut on November 23. This will be followed by two reception dinners — on November 26 and 30 in Bulandshahr and Delhi respectively. The second reception is expected to be for his state and national teammates in the capital.

Says the would-be-groom’s father…

Bhuvneshwar’s father Kiran Pal Singh said that the family was looking for a 10-day window for the wedding, and was hoping to have it in Meerut itself. He told India Times,”The wedding will take place in Meerut and it will be attended by family and close friends. But we want Bhuvneshwar’s teammates and members of the Board (BCCI) to also take part in celebrations, which is why we will have a reception in Delhi for them. We are sure everybody will attend it because the entire team will be in Delhi from November 30 for Sri Lanka series.”

India captain Virat Kohli, MS Dhoni, Ravindra Jadeja, Ravichandran Ashwin, Suresh Raina and few others are expected to grace their presence. Officials from both Uttar Pradesh Cricket Association and BCCI are also expected.
