Yuvraj Singh-Hazel Keech wedding: Cricketer goes to Parliament to invite Narendra Modi

Cricketer Yuvraj Singh along with his mother Shabnam Singh arrived at Delhi on Thursday to invite Prime Minister Narendra Modi for his wedding reception.  Yuvraj, who got engaged in a low-key affair in Bali in April, is all set to tie the knot with fiancée Hazel Keech on 30 November in Chandigarh.

According to a report by The Times of India, the who's who of sports, showbiz and politics are on the guest list for the lavish reception which is to be held on 7 December in Delhi.

Interestingly Modi also attended Yuvraj's close friend and teammate Harbhajan Singh's  wedding reception in 2015.

Before the seven-minute meet with Modi ended, photos of Yuvraj and his mother at the Parliament surfaced on social media, reports Hindustan Times.

“We have invited Modi Ji for the reception in Delhi. We carried a box of dry fruits and chocolates with the wedding card,” Shabnam was quoted as saying by the Hindustan Times after the meeting.

The southpaw, who has been a part of India's World Cup winning teams, has been an inspiration for many not only on field but off it. 'Yuvi' fought and won his battle against cancer, after being diagnosed in 2011, and returned to the Indian team next year.

“He was very happy for my son and asked him about his health and how he was doing now. He expressed his concern when Yuvi was not well and shared how he used to send messages to him through social media,” said Shabnam, when asked about Modi's message to the cricketer.

PM Modi assured Yuvraj that he would attend the reception if he's free.

However, Yuvraj seemed to have made a small blunder amid all the pre-wedding hysteria by misspelling Modi's name. The wedding invitation read 'Narendar', instead of Narendra, according to a report by Hindustan Times. An error which was too late to rectify.
