The couple is set to tie the knot tonight, and special arrangements are apparently being made to welcome the Indian Test squad, which is currently in Mohali for the third Test against England.

Says a source, "Harbhajan Singh is expected to join in the celebrations soon while Virat Kohli and his actress-girlfriend Anushka Sharma should also be here."

Close friends of the Singh family say that some England cricketers will also be in attendance.

Buzz is, Honey Singh will regale the guests at the post-wedding party. Barmy Army, a group that organises tours for the English cricket team, acquired permission from the cricketer to partake in the celebrations.

While the cricketer enjoyed a bachelor's party at the beaches of Dubai last week, Keech back home was too busy with the wedding preps.

Says Keech's friend, "The shopping drove us crazy, which is why we couldn't do a bachelorette. We'll make up for it in the functions."


On November 19, Yuvi took off to Dubai to celebrate his limited days of bachelorhood with Zaheer Khan, Angad Bedi and wedding planner Aditya Motwane in attendance.
 
A friend of the cricketer, on condition of anonymity, tells hitlist, "I was in Dubai for a show. Yuvraj was also there because of prior commitments, and so was Angad.

Zaheer happened to be there as well.

"We got together, basked in the sun in Jumeirah beach and partied. You can call it a bachelor bash. This was our send-off for our buddy into the wedded world."

Last evening, many players of the Indian cricket team reportedly dropped in for the mehendi and sangeet functions.

Says the source, "At a high-profile wedding, you can't predict anything till the last moment. "But yes, there's a possibility that his English friends will attend the wedding functions too.

"Among the confirmed guests are his friends from the Indian team, especially Harbhajan Singh, who won't miss it for the world. Virat Kohli is expected to be accompanied by actress girlfriend Anushka Sharma."

Though PM Narendra Modi and Sachin Tendulkar are among the invitees, we are told that they will only attend the reception in New Delhi on December 7.
