There are rifts that have surfaced between Pakistan cricketer Shoaib Malik and ace Indian tennis star Sania Mirza. Neither of the people has commented on this matter but Mirza has shared a cryptic post via Instagram, which ignited the speculations.
A report in Geo.tv had suggested the reason for not announcing this news. As per the report, they will resolve all their legal issues and announce a decision. They will be co-parenting their son, Izhaan.
The two tied the knot in 2010 in a hotel in Hyderabad and the two have often stayed away due to their professional commitments to sports. They were blessed with a son in 2018 and after making her comeback in January 2020 she won the Hobart Doubles International.
COVID-19 kept the two away for a matter of five months. The Pakistan Cricketer was allowed to skip a few training sessions in order for him to meet his family.
“If you love someone and get married to that person that should be all that matters” – Shoaib Malik
Speaking to Pakistan.net back then, he revealed not being nervous about marrying her given the political relations between both India and Pakistan. He has said:
“No, not at all. In a marriage, you don’t concern yourself with where your partner is from or what is going on between the countries or in politics. That is not our domain. If you love someone and get married to that person that should be all that matters, regardless of which country you come from. On a wider point, I have many friends who are Indian and I don’t find anything strained because of the relationship between the two countries. I am a cricketer, not a politician.”
Shoaib Malik hasn’t announced his retirement from international cricket and was just traded to the Karachi Kings in the Pakistan Super League. He is presently working as a cricket expert for a news channel along with Wasim Akram and Waqar Younis.
