We examine the identity and biography of wife Divya Singh, who will marry the Indian cricketer Mukesh Kumar on Tuesday in Gorakhpur
Mukesh Kumar was not present during the 3rd T20I match between India and Australia in Guwahati on Tuesday, November 28, as he had been given leave for his wedding. Captain Suryakumar Yadav humorously confirmed Mukesh’s absence, stating that Mukesh was away to play the “biggest game” of his life. Mukesh and his wife Divya Singh, dressed in traditional attire, relished their time at the wedding ceremony as they danced to the beats of a popular Bhojpuri song.

Divya hails from Baniapur Berui village in Chapra, Bihar and was seen dancing with Mukesh during the pair’s Haldi Ceremony ahead of their marriage. Divya is said to have a strong presence in Mukesh’s life and has been through the Indian pacer’s thick and thin times. Nothing else is known about her though.
Mukesh Kumar’s marriage was partaken in Gorakhpur. There was a wedding procession from Kakarkund village in the Sadar block to Gorakhpur and the marriage ceremony was in a hotel and there is also going to be a reception party on December 4, which will be conducted in Mukesh’s village Kakarkund.

Who is Divya Singh?
A video depicting Mukesh dancing to the popular Bhojpuri song ‘Lolipop Lagelu’ with his wife-to-be Divya is gaining traction on social media. Divya Singh, from Chapra, Bihar, and a close friend of star cricketer Mukesh Kumar, will marry him at a Gorakhpur hotel. The engagement ceremony took place in February at a hotel in Gopalganj, where Mukesh Kumar and Divya Singh formally announced their engagement.
Born on October 12, 1993, Mukesh Kumar is originally from Kakarkund in the Gopalganj district of Bihar. In 2012, his father, who operated a taxi business in Kolkata, persuaded him to relocate to the capital of West Bengal. Notably, Delhi Capitals acquired Mukesh Kumar for INR 5 Crores in the previous year’s IPL auction. Subsequently, Mukesh earned a spot in the national team.
When will Mukesh Kumar return to play for the Indian Cricket Team?
Mukesh Kumar currently leads Team India’s bowling in the T-20 series against Australia. Although he participated in the first two T20Is of the ongoing series, he was absent from the third match in Guwahati. Mukesh returned home to partake in his Haldi ceremony ahead of his wedding. The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) confirmed that Mukesh Kumar had requested leave for his marriage.
However, the BCCI assured that the experienced fast bowler would rejoin the squad before the 4th T20I, scheduled for December 1 in Raipur. As a replacement for Mukesh, Avesh Khan was brought in for the 3rd T20I at the Barsapara Cricket Stadium. Additionally, India added Deepak Chahar as an extra pacer to the squad for the remaining T20I series, concluding with the final match in Bengaluru on December 3.
