Pakistani Cricketers With Their Wives
Pakistan’s strict culture might be the reason WAGS (wives and girlfriends) of Pakistani cricketers aren’t talked about in the media or the general public. However, we believe these women deserve a lot of credit for their journey with our cricketing stars. As they say: “Behind every successful man is a woman.” — let’s see who’s behind our Superstars?
1. Shahid Afridi and Nadia Afridi
Shahid Afridi’s wife’s name is said to be Nadia Khan. It is said that she doesn’t have much interest in cricket, a reason for her not attending matches. Blessed with three daughters, the Afridis seem like a content family.
2. Shoaib Malik And Sania Mirza
The sports-based Hyderabadi duo of Shoaib Malik and Sania Mirza has to be the most fabulous couple. Blessed with a daughter, Shoaib and Sania have vowed to stay together and help each other out in their desired ambitions. Shoaib Malik and Sania Mirza’s wedding grabbed headlines across the globe, when the two decided to marry on April 12, 2010. Shoaib Malik has recently made a heroic comeback to the national side by hammering centuries while his wife Sania made history by being the first Indian woman to win a Doubles Wimbledon tournament, when she won it with Martina Hingis. Quite the couple!
3. Misbah-ul-Haq And Wife Uzma
Uzma, the captain’s wife, must be as resilient as Misbah himself. A couple of fine temperament perhaps. She doesn’t only look good but also seems like she can have a decent time outing. Their baby boy Faizan-ul-Haq can also be seen here.
And last but certainly not the least, this is the wife of Pakistani Test captain Misbah-ul-Haq, Uzma Khan.
4. Kamran Akmal And Wife Aaiza
Kamran Akmal married wife Aaiza in 2006. They have been blessed with a baby daughter. Just hope she is a catch that Akmal never drops!
5. Imran Nazir and Amber Hafeez
