India and Pakistan don’t share an ideal relationship. Due to political tension between the neighboring countries, they are considered as arch-rivals on the cricket field too. However, the game of cricket is considered a uniting factor. The cricketers from both nations have respect and admiration for each other.
Also, the Indian and Pakistani cricketers boast of having a massive fan following in Pakistan and India respectively. Last year, Pakistan’s decorated seamer Hasan Ali’s wife, Samiya Arzoo gained a lot of limelight when she hailed the Indian skipper Virat Kohli as her favorite batsman.
Kohli is arguably the best batsman of the modern era. The 32-year-old has stamped his authority in all formats of international cricket. He is the only current player to feature in the Top 5 of the batsmen rankings by the International Cricket Council (ICC) of all three formats.
Last year, when the world was under lockdown in March 2020 due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, Samiya Arzoo decided to host a Question and Answer session on her official Instagram handle. During the interactive interaction, a fan asked Samiya to name her favorite batsman while presuming that her husband, Hasan is her favorite bowler.

Samiya took note of the question and was quick to reply that the Indian skipper is her favorite batsman. The answer by Hasan’s wife gained a lot of limelight on social media as many fans came up with memes and jokes about the same.
Notably, Samiya is a Dubai-based Indian girl who was born in Haryana. She is a flight engineer with Emirates Airlines, while her family is settled in New Delhi. Samiya met Hasan for the first time in Dubai during a dinner date and eventually, their friendship turned into a love affair. The two finally got hitched in a private ceremony on August 20, 2019.
