5 Cricketers Who Married Their Relatives

3) Saeed Anwar – Lubna


The Pakistani southpaw was one of the most fluent and elegant batsmen during the mid-’90s. He was the batting mainstay of Pakistan during his peak years. The famous 194 against India at Chepauk, which incidentally was the highest score back then, is etched in cricketing history.

In 1996 he got married to his cousin, Lubna who was a doctor by profession. Anwar was at a happy stage in his life until a tragedy struck in 2001. His 3-year-old daughter died due to a prolonged illness. The couple stood the test of time and married to this day. His cricketing journey ended after the 2003 ICC World cup.
