Jasprit Bumrah Asked for Marriage Advice Once, This is What Yuvraj Singh Said
India all-rounder Yuvraj Singh once gave relationship tips to pace spearhead Jasprit Bumrah. During the pandemic induced lockdown, many sportspersons started hosting live sessions on Instagram. During one session conducted by Yuvraj last year, Bumrah had joined for a freewheeling conversation. In the candid chat, Bumrah sought relationship advice from the two-time World Cup winner. Bumrah asked his former Mumbai Indians (MI) teammate in the Indian Premier League (IPL) whether he is still a momma’s boy (after marriage) or not.
With a 14-year-age gap between them, Jasprit thought theformer player was much experienced than him in all walks of life, inlcuding marriage.“So you were called a momma’s boy. Shaadi ke baad, are you still a momma’s boy?” asked Bumrah. Responding to the pacer’s question, the legendary cricketer came with a hilarious marriage advice of his own.
Reacting to Bumrah’s query during the Instagram Live session, Yuvraj asserted, “Once a momma’s boy, always a momma’s boy.” Often regarded as one of the best all-rounders in the game, Yuvraj famously said, “You have peace in your life right now. That will change once you get married. Enjoy it now because once you are married, your life will be all about finding balance at home. It helps if you have a good life partner.”
On March 15, Bumrah tied the knot with anchor and sports presenter Sanjana Ganeshan in Goa. They exchanged wedding vows in a private ceremony. The ceremony reportedly took place with not more than 20 people in attendance, owing to the ongoing pandemic.
Bumrah opted out of the fourth Test and the ongoing T20I series against England citing “personal reasons”. He is expected to make a comeback in the three-match ODI series starting on March 23. The 27-year-old played two Tests in the four-match series against England and returned with four wickets. He remained wicketless in the third Test. His record as India’s leading wicket-taker in T20Is was surpassed by Yuzvendra Chahal during the ongoing five-match T20I series against England.
