Nowadays cricketers have a crazy fan following. The emergence of the digital medium has further allowed the fans to keep a constant track of their superstars. Notably, the audience is always interested in the personal lives of these players. They are eager to know about their love relationships and marriages.
Most of the time the cricketers have received tons of blessings and congratulatory messages for their wedding ceremonies. Among them, certain marriages are unique as the players have chosen the bride from within the family. Though such relations are subjected to social stigma these players have put love ahead of everything.
Here is the list of 5 cricketers who married their relatives
1) Shahid Afridi – Nadia Afridi
The cricketer who has got an equal amount of love and hate from the fans is Shahid Afridi. The former Pakistan skipper is known for his humility and power game. The swashbuckler was a genuine match-winner with his all-round skills. He was one of the few players who never allowed the situation to dictate his batting style.
Keeping all his controversies aside, one can say that Afridi was a valuable cricketer for the Asian team in winning championships. In his heydays, Boom Boom charmed the cricketing fraternity with his hitting skills which included a lot of female fans. Their dreams came shattering down when he tied the knot at an early age of 20.
He decided to share the rest of his life with his maternal cousin, Nadia Afridi. Since then they have been together for almost 19 years. Nadia is a very reserved character who has never accompanied Shahid for any of his games. They are the proud parents of 4 daughters named Aqsa, Ansha, Ajwa, and Asmara.
