Pakistan’s star bowler Shaheen Shah Afridi is all set to tie the knot with Ashna Afridi, daughter of cricket legend, Shahid Afridi in an intimate ceremony. Shahid confirmed the news while speaking to Express News.
The all-rounder has shared that his daughter and the 22-year-old pacer will have their minimal nikkah according to the Afridi tribal traditions. The ceremony will take place in Karachi, with Rukhsati and the reception to be held at a later date.
Shaheen, after the nikkah, will travel to Lahore to participate in the upcoming installment of the Pakistan Super League and will rejoin the Lahore Qalandar squad. The bowler was ruled out of the England series due to injury and is currently in rehab.
Last year, Shahid announced the couple’s engagement. The renowned player took to Twitter and addressed the ongoing rumours. “Shaheen’s family approached my family for my daughter.”
He went on to add, “Both families are in touch, matches are made in heaven. If Allah wills this match will be made too. My prayers are with Shaheen for his continued success on and off the field.” Soon after, the youngster expressed his gratitude to Shahid and penned, “Alhumdulillah. Thanks, Lala for your prayers. May Allah SWT make things easier for everyone. You are the pride of the entire nation.”
