Fast bowler Bhuvneshwar Kumar is the latest Indian cricketer to make his relationship official. Bhuvi who was one of India’s star performers against Australia in the recently concluded ODI series against Australia got engaged to Nupur Nagar in Greater Noida on Wednesday. The engagement took place in complete secrecy and was attended by couple’s close friends and families. Earlier on Tuesday, Bhuvi had revealed his better half on his Instagram account by posting a picture of himself with Nupur. He captioned the picture, “Here’s the better half of the picture @nupurnagar.”
Bhuvneshwar Kumar’s father, while talking to TOI revealed that several Indian cricketers could be a part of the wedding ceremony. However, he clarified that no dates for it have been finalised yet. “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. 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,” he was quoted saying.
Talking about his son’s choice, Kiran Pal Singh said that it was completely Bhuvneshwar Kumar’s decision to marry Nupur. “Our families have known each other for a while now, par yeh Bhuvneshwar ki pasand thi. Ussne humein bataya 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,” he added.
Apart from being one of India’s top performers, Bhuvneshwar has also been one of the most evolved Indian cricketers. He was the highest wicket-taker in this year’s Indian Premier League picking up 26 scalps in 14 matches. He will next be seen in action in the T20 series against Australia.
