Stuart Broad put aside on-field rivalries to attend Yuvraj Singh’s pre-wedding bash to Hazel Keech on November 29. The men are best known for their involvement in the 6 sixes strikes (by Yuvi off Broad) during the 2007 T20 World Cup at Kingsmead, Durban – a record equalling feat. But the years seem to have made the pain abate and Broad looks to have swallowed the humiliation, to let bygones be bygones and decided to have some fun at the festivities. In fact, after the English cricket team was invited to the event, fans said they wanted to see the star bowler dance at the event. Since the team is currently in India for a 5-match Test series, it was expected that they would attend the bash and Stuart didn’t disappoint.
Others who attended the bash included Virat Kohli, whose wedding dance has gone viral on the internet, Parthiv Patel, Mohammed Shami and Ajinkya Rahane. The couple’s mehendi session and sangeet ceremony happened on the same day. While Yuvi and Hazel’s pre-wedding celebrations were grand, the actual wedding on November 30 was a quiet affair. It took place at the Dera of Baba Ram Singh at a Gurudwara, which is located 40 kms away from Chandigarh. A second wedding following Hindu rituals will take place on December 2 in Goa, followed by a reception in the capital.
