In pictures: Haris Rauf gets hitched with Muzna Malik in intimate ceremony

Published

Pakistan pacer Haris Rauf has the tied knot with his class fellow Muzna Masood Malik in a close gathering in Islamabad today.

The pictures and videos of the bride and groom have been circulating on social media and fans are going gaga over the couple.

The 28-year-old pacer wore a white traditional sherwani with trousers and black loafers. Meanwhile, his wife donned a white dress embellished with golden embroidery.

The bride’s dress was complemented by an elegant gold and white jewellery set.

In one of the videos, Muzna could be seen showing her henna with “HR 150” written on her hand.

The ceremony was attended by fellow pacer Shaheen Shah Afridi, former captain Shahid Afridi, Lahore Qalandar’s Sameen Rana, Atif Rana and Aqib Javed.

According to reports, rukhsati will take place later next year.

Let’s take a look at how fans are reacting:

One of the users, sharing pacer Shaheen Shah Afridi’s picture, said that he has put on an “iconic look” for his best friend’s ceremony. 

Haris, who started his career with tape ball cricket, found his feet in international cricket after being picked up by Pakistan Super League (PSL) franchise Lahore Qalandars.

Qalandars invested in Haris and sent him to Australia for high-class training. The right-arm pacer went on to represent Melbourne Stars in Big Bash League (BBL) before making his T20I debut from Pakistan in 2020.

With his pace and aggression, Haris rose to fame in no time, having won several matches for Pakistan with the bowl over the past couple of years.

Currently, he is undergoing a rehabilitation program following an injury near his thigh.

Another pacer and Haris’s close friend Shaheen will tie the knot with former Pakistan captain Shahid Afridi’s daughter Ansha Afridi on February 3, 2023.

Following the two four-day matches, the Shaheens will engage in 50-over matches against Northern Territory (NT) and Bangladesh ‘A’ on 4 and 6 August, respectively, prior to the start of the T20 series on 9 August.
