For Yuvraj Singh, it�۪s not just his cricketing skills that grabs attention, his private life gets just as much. So, it was no surprise when his engagement to model-actor Hazel Keech was leaked before they announced it formally.
Singh tells the Hindustan Times, ���It (the news about the engagement getting leaked) was supposed to happen. I wasn�۪t really surprised about it. I am used to it now,� he said adding that it�۪s ���impossible� for him to have a private life and has gotten used to the fact.
���You cannot enjoy some private time here. I know that if I need to have some private time, it�۪s better to leave the country (laughs). You go out, spend some quality time and come back,� he says.
However, the left-handed batsman does admit that too much of media attention affects him sometimes. ���It�۪s just that sometimes it gets too much. I mean it�۪s important to understand that everyone can�۪t be available 24/7 and people should respect the individual�۪s private time,� he laments.
While he enjoys social media and is quite active on multiple platforms, Singh feels that social media too doesn�۪t help in keeping one�۪s life private. ���It has its own advantages in the sense that you can interact with everyone directly. But then it has reached a point now, where everybody knows what you are doing, and it�۪s impossible to keep things private,� he says.
