Mohali: Finishing the Mohali Test against England on the fourth day gave Virat Kohli and co. an added advantage – they took a good break to celebrate cricketer Yuvraj Singh’s wedding.
The star Indian cricketer is set to tie the knot with model-actress Hazel Keech.
Yuvraj’s pre-wedding celebrations took place in Chandigarh (which is close to Mohali), on Tuesday.
The Indian cricket team had a gala time as they attended the pre-wedding ceremony at the city hotel.

India completed an eight-wicket victory over England, to take a comfortable 2-0 lead in the five-match Test series, on Tuesday.
Kohli had earlier confirmed in the post-match press conference, that 2011 World Cup winner Yuvraj has invited the entire team to the wedding, among other guests.
“There is a gathering there tonight at the hotel. The whole team is invited,” said Kohli after the match. “We’ll obviously go there, being Yuvi’s function (Yuvraj Singh’s wedding).”
“It’ll be a nice coincidence, getting the job done in four days, and then you have a chance to celebrate in the evening,” continued the India Test captain. “The guys will be a bit more relaxed in the evening, and we can chill for a bit longer.”
The actual wedding is set to take place on Wednesday at a hotel in Chandigarh. Here’s a picture of Yuvraj Singh and his fiancée Hazel Keech that they uploaded on social media, ahead of their marriage ceremonies.
