Hasan Ali, the Pakistan fast bowler, is all set to enter the wedlock with Indian girl Shamia Arzoo, who hails from the Mewat district of Haryana. The duo will be tying the knots on August 20 at Dubai’s Atlanta Palm Hotel. A few days ago, the speedster dropped a tweet on his marriage and later confirmed it on social media. Ever since, he has been grabbing quite a bit of the limelight.

On the auspicious day, the 25-year-old Hasan will be donning a black and red sherwani suit while Shamia will be dressed in Indian style. After getting hitched, the couple will be settling down in Gujranwala. In the meantime, Hasan mentioned that he will be sending invites to the players of the Indian cricket team and would love if some of them grace their presence on his special day.

We are all professionals, says Hasan Ali

“I will invite the Indian cricket team and players to come to my marriage ceremony, after all, we are all cricket mates. I would love it if some Indian players come to the ceremony in Dubai, it would be lovely. The contest is on the field and not off it. In the end, we are all professional cricketers and must share happiness,” Hasan was quoted as saying in Urdu Express.

Shamia holds a B. Tech degree in Aeronautics and is currently a flight engineer in Emirates Airlines. She is based in Dubai for the last three years even as her family is settled in New Delhi. Hasan said that their families wanted the wedding to be a low-key affair, but it turned out to be a different.

“Our families wanted to keep this a low-key affair but since the matter has come out in the media, I have decided to make an official announcement to ensure they are no speculations surrounding my marriage,” he mentioned.

Shamia will be the fourth Indian woman to marry a Pakistan cricketer. Zaheer Abbas was the first to pledge one’s troth followed by Mohsin Khan. Back in 2010, current all-rounder Shoaib Malik got married to Sania Mirza, the Indian tennis star. Sania and Shoaib also have a son, named Izhan Mirza Malik, who’s born last year.
