Pakistan’s left-arm fast bowler Shaheen Shah Afridi is all set to tie the knot on February 3, according to family sources.

The 6-foot-6-inch pacer is engaged to the daughter of former national cricket team captain Shahid Afridi.

The rukhsati ceremony for Ansha Afridi, daughter of Shahid Afridi, is expected to take place later.

Both families have started preparations for the wedding ceremony. The pacer got engaged to Ansha two years ago.

Shaheen will get busy with the eighth edition of the Pakistan Super League (PSL).

Speaking on Geo News show “Aik Din Geo Kai Sath”, the 21-year-old revealed that it was his wish to marry Afridi’s daughter, Ansha.

“It was my wish and Alhumdulillah it is fulfilled now,” he shared. “I met her and will meet her soon,” a blushing Shaheen told the interviewer, Sohail Warraich.

Afridi is the backbone of Pakistan’s bowling attack. He made his international debut for Pakistan national team in April 2018 in the 50 over format. He started his Test career in December of the same year.

Shaheen Afridi rose to eminence in 2017, when the world saw the 17-year-old fast-bowler throw the ball at 90 mph.

He is considered an all-rounder and seeks to excel in bowling, batting, and fielding.

In order to raise the status of Green Shirts, former cricketer-turned-coach Basit Ali stated in the most recent episode of PSL special show “Har Lamha Purjosh,” hosted by Waseem Badami, that it is a good idea for new PCB chairman Mohsin Naqvi to give wicketkeeper-batsman Muhammad Rizwan the captaincy of the national team.

In order to improve Pakistani cricket, he stated, “I believe that now is the ideal time to name Rizwan captain.” “This is the right time to take this bold step and name him captain. I have some free advice for the newly appointed PCB chairman.”

In the recently concluded Pakistan vs. New Zealand series, he further criticised left-arm pacer Shaheen Shah Afridi’s captaincy, claiming that it even caused his pace to decline. He went on to say, “The 4-1 defeat by New Zealand after Babar’s removal from captaincy is a good enough reason that bold decisions must be made now to prepare ahead of the World Cup.”
