Bowled Over! Bhuvneshwar Kumar gets engaged to childhood friend Nupur Nagar

Indian pacer Bhuvneshwar Kumar yesterday revealed that he got engaged to Nupur Nagar in Greater Noida. The ceremony included the couple’s close friends and families. Recalling the time spent with Nupur in the past, Bhuvneshwar posted couple of photos on his Instagram account. He captioned the picture, “Rewinding and going back to the happy memories, inspires me to fast forward and dream about the amazing future that lies ahead.” Earlier, the bowler revealed Nupur’s identity in an Instagram post on Tuesday, calling her his ‘better-half’.

Earlier, Bhuvneshwar’s father Kiran Pal Singh quoted to a leading daily, “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.” According to Bhuvneshwar’s father, several Indian players are expected to attend the wedding.

In case you didn’t know, the couple grew up in the same neighbourhood in Meerut and it is apparent that they have known each other for quite a while. Nupur, after having received her engineering degree from a private academy, is currently working in an MNC. Her father, meanwhile, is a retired police officer.

Bhuvneshwar, who has been regular in Test cricket and ODI, is a part of India’s 15-member squad in the upcoming T20 series against Australia. The first T20I is scheduled to be played in Ranchi on Saturday. Ever since making debut in ODI and T20 against Pakistan in 2012, the 27-year old has taken 80 and 17 wickets respectively. He was impressive during the five-match ODI series against Australia.
