Noida: Indian pacer Bhuvneshwar Kumar is set to focus on a new chapter in life after he became the latest Indian cricketer to make his engagement official. The 27-year-old got engaged to his fiancée Nupur Nagar in a private ceremony in Greater Noida on Wednesday, which was attended by relatives and close friends. The bowler revealed Nupur’s identity in an Instagram post on Tuesday, calling her his ‘better-half’.
Bhuvneshwar on Thursday took to Twitter and shared a photo of the two lovebirds with the caption, “”Rewinding and going back to the happy memories, inspires me to fast forward and dream about the amazing future that lies ahead..”
“Our families have known each other for a while now, par yeh Bhuvneshwar ki pasand thi (but Nupur was Bhuvneshwar’s choice). Ussne humein bataya and we were happy (He told us about her and we were happy). The girl is educated and sweet and the family is very nice too. We are now trying to see when we can have the wedding. Bhuvi is busy with back-to-back series in the coming months but as soon as we find a 10-day window, we will make arrangements,” Bhuvneshwar’s father, Kiran Pal Singh, was quoted saying by the Times of India.
“As soon as the dates are finalised, we will book a venue here in Meerut. But if logistics don’t allow that, we will look for some place in Delhi too. Dekhiye, shaadi koi roz-roz toh hoti nahi (Look, weddings does not happen everyday). This is a special occasion and we want everyone to be there. So we will extend our invitation to all of Bhuvneshwar’s teammates from the Indian team. I hope all of them can make it too,” Kiran Pal Singh added.
Despite spinners Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal being the pick of the bowlers in the ODI series vs Australia, Bhuvneshwar Kumar had the best economy rate with 4 wickets to his name. Not only that, Bhuvneshwar also scored 53 runs for the Men in Blue.
The right-arm medium pacer has also been included in Virat Kohli’s side that will play a three-match T20 series against Australia starting October 7.
