India’s premier leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal announced his engagement to choreographer Dhanashree Verma on Saturday (August 08). The couple broke the auspicious news on their respective social media accounts.
Dhanashree is a woman who wears many hats. Apart from choreography, she is also a qualified doctor, famous YouTuber and an entrepreneur who are running the ‘Dhanushree Verma Dance Company.’
Chahal shared an adorable picture on Twitter and wrote: “We said “Yes” along with our families.”

Soon, fans and Yuzi’s colleagues flooded his post with greetings and celebratory messages.
Former Indian cricketer Virender Sehwag, also known for his wittiness, hilariously wished the newly-engaged couple.
Sehwag congratulated Yuzvendra and Dhanashree by posting a funny meme that read: “Waah @yuzi_chahal! Aapda ko avsar mein badal daala. Congratulations.”

On the professional front, Chahal has played 53 ODIs and 42 T20Is for India. The leg-spinner forms a formidable spin duo with Kuldeep Yadav in limited-overs cricket. He last appeared for Team India during the ODI leg of the New Zealand tour earlier this year.
The 30-years-old will return to action soon for Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in the 13th season of the Indian Premier League. At RCB, he plays under the leadership of Virat Kohli, who also wished the couple.
The tournament is scheduled to commence from September 19 in UAE after getting approval from the Government of India. The 2020 edition of the cash-rich league has been shifted to UAE, a country with less than 6000 active coronavirus cases.
