Pakistan fast bowler Hasan Ali and his wife Samiya Arzoo were recently blessed with a baby girl. Hasan and Samiya had entered the wedlock in August 2019. The right-arm pacer had become the fourth cricketer from Pakistan to get married to an Indian. Previously, Zaheer Abbas, Mohsin Khan, and Shoaib Malik had tied the knots with Indian nationals.
Samiya is from the Mewat district of Haryana. According to reports, she is a flight engineer with Emirates Airlines while her family members are settled in New Delhi. The couple is now all set to start a new journey in their lives as parents. Earlier this month, Hasan had taken to Twitter to announce the birth of his first child.
“Allahumduillah! Allah has blessed us with the baby girl. Welcome to our family my princess. I wish this little angel Baby angel have wonderful dreams and May the almighty always be with her to fulfill her dreams on the walk of her life. Ameen, please remember in your dua,” Hasan had written on the social media platform.
Phone comes to Hasan Ali’s rescue
Hasan Ali could not attend the birth of his first child since he is currently in South Africa. It, however, did not take him long to see the face of his newborn thanks to his mobile phone. Pakistani journalist ٰImran Siddique recently shared an adorable picture of how the cricket star managed to see his daughter.
The journalist posted a photo where Hasan could be seen seeing his newborn through a video call as he congratulated the bowler.
Here is the tweet:
یہ ہوتی ہے اصل قربانی
پہلی بیٹی پیدا ہوئی مگر حسن علی نیشنل ڈیوٹی پر ہیں
ہمیں تنقید کرتے ہوئے ان تمام پہلووں کو ذہن میں رکھنا چاہیے

Pakistan are currently in South Africa for three ODIs and four T20Is. The visitors won the ODI series 2-1 and have taken the lead in the T20I series after winning the first game. Hasan did not get a chance in the first two ODIs before playing the third. It was his first in the format since the World Cup clash against India in June 2019.
He made an instant impact in the series-decider. With the bat, he slammed an unbeaten 32 off just 11 balls to help his team cross the 300-run mark. With the ball, he picked up one wicket as Pakistan won the game by 18 runs to clinch the series. In the first T20I, Hasan picked up two wickets and also scored 9 runs off 3 balls.
