Yuvraj Singh’s Affairs and Relationships

Yuvraj Singh - Deepika Padukone

Few people can recall but Yuvi and Deepika became friends because they both have a sports background. It was reportedly a brief relationship. In an interview Yuvraj once discussed their split "I had just returned from South Africa when we met in Mumbai through mutual friends. We felt a connection and were curious to learn more. We didn't spend enough time together to determine whether it would last a long time. She eventually moved on and I did too.

" Deepika apparently developed feelings for Yuvraj Singh when Dhoni was striving for her affections. They were spotted together at a number of events which started the dating rumours. Back then rumours that they even got engaged in a private ceremony were common. As soon as the rumours of their romance started they quickly faded. They were spotted together at a number of events which started the dating rumours.

Yuvraj Singh - Riya Sen

The alleged romance between Yuvraj and Riya was intended to last only a short while. They reportedly met at a party and clicked right away which led to them briefly dating. Alleged love between Yuvraj and Bong beauty A short time after his breakup with Deepika Padukone Riya Sen began making the rounds. At a party Yuvraj ran into Munmun Sen's daughter and the two fell in love at first sight.

Additionally the pair were seen holding hands at social gatherings. Yuvraj Singh of the Indian cricket team was also linked to the actress. According to reports he was looking for someone after splitting up with Deepika. They apparently met at a party and liked each other but things couldn't progress because of their opposing temperaments

Yuvraj Singh - Kim Sharma

Yuvraj Singh and actress Kim Sharma were in a serious relationship for over 4 years during the early years of his cricket career. According to reports the two split up because his family did not approve of their relationship and they both moved on. Kim Sharma the Mohabbatein star is well-known as Yuvraj Singh's ex-lover. The ex-couple dated for about four years before splitting up in 2007. While some attribute their break-up to Kim's abusive nature it was later revealed that the couple split up due to Yuvraj's mother's disapproval of the relationship. They reportedly dated for four years while Yuvraj was developing his cricket career. Their romance did not however result in marriage. Kim has never mentioned it in public.

Yuvraj Singh - Hazel Keech

The couple has consistently insisted that it took time and work for their relationship to grow into what it is now. The two first connected at a friend's party but their romance was anything but traditional. In a previous interview Yuvraj discussed it and said 'I first met Hazel in 2011 at a friend's birthday and what caught my attention was her delightful smile. She was actually not grinning at me.

But later that night I managed to get her attention and I even praised her for the role she played in the movie Bodyguard. However Hazel had no interest. I must have asked her to go out for coffee seven or eight times but she never responded! She left me perplexed. I've been shot down before but being shot down so frequently was something else. I assumed she was seeing someone else so I made the decision to end it ' he said.

The cricketer was also given a cancer diagnosis in this year so naturally pursuing a girl who was obviously not interested took a back seat. The cricketer acknowledged that he too had not experienced love at first sight. 'I don't think it exists. When a person is 16 or 17 years old they experience 'love at first sight.' It took three arduous years for destiny to bring them back together 'She was listed as a friend on my friend and actor Angad Bedi's Facebook page in 2014. I told Angad to stay away from her because I liked her and was surprised that she had made friends with him after only a brief introduction. I then sent her a request but it took her three months to accept it. After knowing each other for three years and three months we became friends and I told her that after all this time I deserved to go on a date with her. Now she gave her consent.'

It was a date that took three years so Yuvraj admits to doing his research to impress his lady love. 'I learned about her work and that she had appeared in Bombay Dreams and the Harry Potter movies. In fact when she learned that the latter was one of my favourites she was happy.' Yuvraj finally asked Hazel to marry him on a Bali beach after a year of dating. He admitted 'I really don't think I'm very good at romance so I was understandably nervous. The couple announced their engagement on social media in order to finally put an end to all relationship rumours. Yuvraj tweeted 'Yes I am engaged because I found a friend for life in Hazel Keech. 'Yes it's true; I'm getting married to Yuvraj ' Hazel further tweeted.

Yuvi explained why he is so infatuated with Hazel in his conversation 'Hazel is a genuine honest person who is aware of the real me in contrast to most people who are only interested in my life because they are motivated by some agenda. It's reassuring that she has no interest in what I do on the field. She has the same outlook on life as I do; we both enjoy having fun and pushing ourselves to do our best. When you are with someone like that life is interesting.' Hazel's response was brief: 'I'm so grateful to have found such an amazing person ' she said. Yuvraj proposed to Hazel Keech in 2015 and they wed on November 30 2016.

Yuvraj Singh’s Struggles

There aren't many athletes in sports history who have returned to the top after beating cancer. Some of the athletes who fought their way back include the cricketers Simon O'Donnell and Dave Callaghan the cyclist Lance Armstrong (despite his controversial actions) the ice hockey player Mario Lemieux the basketball player Edna Campbell the baseball player Mike Lowell and the football player Eric Abidal.

In terms of Indian athletes Yuvraj Singh stands out as the sportsperson who overcame cancer and was back playing for his country. It was during the World Cup that he would wake up in the middle of the night struggling to breathe and coughing profusely. After the World Cup a scan for his chest cavity revealed a tumour but like any of us he couldn't believe it and more importantly he ignored it because cancer meant leaving cricket so he kept playing.

It wasn't until January that further tests revealed that tumour was malignant — a germ cell cancer called a mediastinal seminoma was diagnosed it was located in between his heart and his (left) lung and it grew about 14 centimetres like a ball. About seven months after India won the World Cup in November 2011 it was revealed that Singh had a lung tumour. Three months later it was determined that he had a mediastinal seminoma a germ-cell tumour between his lungs and that the tumour was cancerous. It was a huge shock to hear the news. It was difficult to accept that Singh had been in such severe pain the entire World Cup. The all-rounder would later admit that his ordeal actually started earlier than the ICC competition. During India's January 2011 tour of South Africa he claimed he was throwing up blood.

By the time the World Cup arrived the discomfort and fatigue had gotten worse and he was concerned for his health. Yuvraj's doctor recommended chemotherapy and on January 26th he travelled to the United States for treatment. His chemotherapy began in February and ended in March. In addition to this treatment he received Ayurvedic treatment and went to rehabilitation in May of the same year.

Cancer one of the most common diseases in the world today was once thought to be a deadly disease whose name shakes the person from head to toe but people chose to fight it. Was he not afraid? How could he possibly fight it? Yes he was scared and as a result he postponed the treatment. But can anyone escape the truth? He faced his fears of getting battered and realised 'Cancer does not mean death.'

In one of his interviews he stated 'Don't be afraid... Be optimistic... Please don't think your life is about to come to an end... Take sound advice and act as soon as possible... If you have a problem with your system don't ignore it... Look at me I never thought I'd be able to play for India again but I've beaten cancer... God has blessed me with this opportunity and my love of cricket has drawn me back. Yuvraj Singh persevered despite the trauma though. He received treatment in the US and completed the three chemotherapy cycles in the beginning of 2012. He even set a good example by being open about his experience with the public and frequently posting photos of himself while he was recovering. In April 2012 Singh finished his treatment and went back to India. He eventually returned to the Indian team for the World T20 in August of that same year.

Yuvraj Singh may have joined the Indian team not long after receiving cancer treatment but he was never quite the same player he had been before. He was kicked out of the team due to his lack of form and fitness but he was able to return to international cricket in 2013 and 2016 before playing his final game wearing the India jersey in June 2017. But what stands out in all of this is Singh's determination to fight. He never gave up whether it was the fight against cancer or the later indifferent form with the bat. He established the YouWeCan Foundation in 2017 to support those in need and raise awareness about cancer. Yuvraj wrote The Test of My Life: From Cricket to Cancer and Back as his autobiography following his battle with cancer
