Pakistan’s legendary pacer Shaheen Shah Afridi tied the knot with the daughter of former skipper Shahid Afridi in a stunning daytime Nikkah in Karachi on Friday.
The ceremony was attended by some of the top players of the national cricket team along with other prominent personalities.
The engagement of Shaheen Afridi and Ansha Afridi took place about two years ago.
The groom wore a light grey-silver coat with matching embroidery on the neckline, sleeves as well as pockets. He paired the look with a silver watch and gel-backed hair. The pictures of the bride have not been shared.
The national team captain Babar Azam, wicketkeeper Sarfaraz Ahmed, leg spinner Shadab Khan and fast bowler Naseem Shah were present at the gathering, several other cricketers sent their greetings to the young couple.
“Prayers for you my baby brother,” Pakistan’s leading batter Muhammad Rizwan said in a Twitter post with a brief congratulatory video. “May you and your wife be the source of happiness and joy for each other, Ameen.”
Pace spearhead Haris Rauf also wished Shaheen in a video and excused himself for missing out on the Nikkah due to “professional commitments”.
