A Milanese wedding out of reach of most Indian photo lenses was followed by Finland’s frosty hush for a honeymoon. But it was at the wedding reception in Mumbai that friends and colleagues had their pound of fun. Harbhajan, Yuvraj and Ashish Nehra ran in faster in the past, but that day their footwork was limited to the nimbleness of bhangra.
The IPL is essentially of and for youth and three of its shiniest stars—a rejuvenated Yuvi, the rising Hardik Pandya and the irrepressible Kohli—were together at a charity gala in support of the underprivileged young in Mumbai.
India faced a target of 202, and were left with an asking-rate of nearly 12 at 100 for 4 in the 12th over. But Yuvraj single-handedly launched such a forceful blitz that Dhoni just needed to give him the strike. The two scored 102 at exactly two runs a ball, with Yuvraj's 77 off 35 showing his dominance.
