Pakistan allrounder Imad Wasim joined the married man club last week. He tied the knot with British-Pakistani Sannia Ashfaq on Saturday at the Faisal Mosque in Islamabad. Just a couple of days before Imad Wasim’s wedding, Pakistan pacer Hasan Ali had also got hitched to Shamia Arzoo. Shamia is a Dubai-based Indian girl, who works as a flight engineer at the Emirates Airlines.

Imad’s wedding was a low-key affair which took place in a mosque in Islamabad. On Monday, he had his wedding dinner. The party was attended by some high-profile names from Pakistan. But one of the notable absentees was Imad’s teammate Babar Azam. The Pakistan batting mainstay could not attend the wedding party due to his cricket commitments.


Babar is currently in England for the ongoing T20 Blast. The star batsman is plying his trade for Somerset and has been in red-hot form. Babar, nonetheless, made sure to wish Imad on the special occasion. The right-handed batsman expressed his disappointment over not being able to attend the wedding before congratulating the newlyweds.

“Congrats Maddi bhai on your big day. Sad that I could not be the part of those celebrations, but I am sending my love and prayers to you and family. May Allah SWT gives the best of both world to you and your loved ones. #ImadWedsSania  @simadwasim,” wrote Babar.

Imad’s next assignment:

Imad Wasim recently turned up for Nottinghamshire in the T20 Blast. He played five games but could not make much of a mark with the bat. He, however, made a good contribution with the ball and picked up seven wickets. Imad last turned up for Pakistan during the World Cup and had a decent campaign.

He will be next seen in action for Pakistan when Sri Lanka visit the country next month. The Islanders will tour Pakistan for three ODIs and as many T20Is. Pakistan were also planning to host two Test matches but it has now been postponed to December in UAE. Imad is more than likely to be a part of both the limited-overs squad.
