Joining the list of Yuvraj Singh, Suresh Raina, Ravindra Jadeja and Rohit Sharma, Team India fast bowler Bhuvneshwar Kumar has now shed his bachelorhood as he got engaged to his longtime girlfriend.

Reportedly, Bhuvi got engaged to an Engineering graduate, Nupur Nagar in a private ceremony on Wednesday in the presence of only family members and close friends. It has now come to light that Nupur’s family used to be the neighbors of Bhuvi and that she has been his childhood friend. She currently works as an engineer in an MNC in Delhi. Her father is a retired police officer.

Bhuvi’s father revealed that their families have known each other for a ling time, but the decision to convert their friendship into relationship was taken by his son and daughter-in-law-to-be. He added that they were planning to arrange the wedding in December this year.

Bhuvi’s father said that they are looking for dates which don’t clash with any of the cricket series of India so that all the Indian cricketers including skipper Virat Kohli and MS Dhoni grace the wedding ceremony.
