Pakistan fast bowler Hasan Ali confirmed that he is going to marry an Indian girl named Samia on August 20 at Dubai.
Speaking to the reporters at a press conference on Friday, the speedster shared the details about his wedding. “The nikkah will take place on August 20 in Dubai, while rukhsati or valima will take place two to three months later in Pakistan,” Hasan said.
The fast bowler informed that his family members alongside fellow teammate and buddy Shadab Khan would attend the nikkah. “My family and my very close friends will attend the wedding reception. Most of the cricketers are busy but Shadab Khan will come”.
Hasan is not the first Pakistani player to marry an Indian. Veteran batsman Shoaib Malik is also married to Indian tennis star Sania Mirza. The duo tie the knot on April 12, 2010. Furthermore, former Pakistan cricketer’s Zaheer Abbas and Mohsin Hasan Khan also have Indian wives.
