Pakistan fast bowler Hasan Ali got hitched to Shamia Arzoo on Tuesday. Shamia is a Dubai-based Indian girl, who works as a flight engineer at the Emirates Airlines.
The bridal event lit up the venue – Atlantis, The Palm in Dubai. It was a pretty private affair with a few people gracing the occasion. Only one cricketer – Shadab Khan attended the wedding.
According to reports, Hasan Ali wanted both Indian and Pakistan cricketers to attend his marriage. But while Ali’s teammates are currently part of a camp under the leadership of Misbah-ul-Haq, Team India is busy taking on the West Indies in the latter’s backyard.
A few weeks ago, the 25-year-old pacer had made an official announcement to the media regarding his wedding.
“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 there are no speculations surrounding my marriage,” Ali said.
It’s the fourth time a Pakistan cricketer is tying the knot with an Indian girl. Previously, Zaheer Abbas, Mohsin Khan & Shoaib Malik had married Indian women.
The wedding ceremony of the two lovebirds took place at around 7 pm. The reception party is likely to be held in Pakistan.
