One of the biggest names in the Pakistan cricket team, Shaheen Afridi, needs no introduction as the world-class pacer has the potential to become one of the best bowlers in the world. While on the professional front, Shaheen continues to grab headlines for his bowling style and wicket-taking abilities, on the personal front, he is enjoying the best phase of his life. The 22-year-old bowler got married to the love of his life and the daughter of legendary Pakistani cricketer, Shahid Afridi’s daughter, Ansha.
As per the latest reports, Shaheen Afridi and Ansha Afridi got married on February 3, 2023, in a grand nikah ceremony in Karachi, Pakistan. The wedding was attended by a lot of renowned cricketers like Babar Azam, Shadab Khan, Sarfaraz Khan, Naseem Shah, and many more. The pictures of cricketers joining the ace bowler on his special day are doing rounds on the internet. However, it was Shaheen and Ansha’s pictures that took the internet by storm. In the pictures, the couple looked absolutely stunning and looked like a match made in heaven.
Talking about Shaheen Afridi and Ansha Afridi’s respective wedding couture, while the Pakistani bowler donned a lovely sherwani and looked handsome on the day, it was the bride, who turned heads with her simply out of this world in a lovely sharara. The gorgeous lady ditched the traditional red colour and instead opted for a pastel sharara that also complemented the groom’s sherwani. Ansha completed her look with a gorgeous maang teeka, a long veil, and flaunted her mehendi-clad hands. While sharing Ansha Afridi's pictures, people are hailing her as the 'most beautiful wife of a cricketer' in the world. No wonder, people are madly in love with her wedding look!
Once in an interview with a Pakistani channel, Geo TV, Pakistani bowler, Shaheen Afridi opened up about his marriage with Ansha Afridi. The ace bowler was asked about his massive female fanbase across Pakistan and whether he would be worried about losing it after his marriage with Shahid Afridi’s daughter, Ansha Afridi. In response to the same, Shaheen admitted that he wasn’t bothered by it at all, as it was his dream to be with her for life. The cricketer said:
"It was my wish and Alhumdulillah it is fulfilled now. I met her and will meet her soon. I found my heart and that's enough for me."
For the unversed, Shaheen Afridi is just 22 years old, and the kind of potential that he has in himself is quite scary. In 2021, he had taken 78 wickets in just 36 matches, and with an average of 22.20, he is one of the best young players in the world. Not only this, Shaheen had also played a monumental role in Pakistan’s first-ever victory over India at the famous ICC Men's T20 World Cup. Currently, Shaheen is in Sri Lanka for the upcoming Test matches.
Congratulations, Shaheen and Ansha!
