Shaheen Afridi’s Nikah with Shahid Afridi’s daughter solemnised in Karachi
Pakistan pacer Shaheen Afridi’s Nikah Friday was solemnised with former skipper Shahid Afridi’s daughter Ansha at a local Karachi mosque.
Maulana Abdul Sattar performed the Nikah at the Zakaria Mosque, while the bride’s rukhsati will take place later.
Soon after the Nikah, a reception was also held where cricketers Babar Azam, Sarfaraz Ahmed, Naseem Shah and Shadab Khan, as well as squash legend Jahangir Khan, were among the attendees.
Asim Bajwa, the former director-general of the Inter-Services Public Relations, was also present at the occasion along with Wasim Khan, the General Manager of the International Cricket Council.
According to family sources, the couple’s mehndi function was held last night. Meanwhile, Shaheen’s family reached Karachi to participate in marriage events two days earlier.
The pair was engaged two years ago.
Speaking in an interview on Geo News’ show “Aik Din Geo Kai Sath”, the left-armer revealed that it was his wish to marry Afridi’s daughter.
“It was my wish and Alhamdulillah [thanks to Allah Almighty] it is fulfilled now,” Shaheen said while blushing during the interview.
When asked whether Ansha felt jealous about his female fans, the 22-year-old cricketer said: “I am not sure, maybe she feels something like that.”
The host asked the young pacer about upsetting his numerous female fans after getting engaged so soon, replying to which he said: “I found my heart and that’s enough for me.”
With his team Lahore Qalandars as the defending champion, skipper Shaheen will be next seen in action during the upcoming eighth edition of the Pakistan Super League, which is scheduled to begin on February 13.
The fast bowler has been in and out of the cricket field for a while in the wake of his knee injury during the T20 World Cup 2022 final against England which was held on November 13.

Hamza Ali Abbasi to make TV comeback in serial ‘Jaan-e-Jahan’
Renowned Pakistani film and television actor Hamza Ali Abbasi is all set to stage his come-back on the tv screen with upcoming drama serial “Jaan-e-Jahan”, the actor announced on Tuesday.
Abbasi informed his followers regarding his return to the TV screen on his official Instagram handle by sharing a teaser of an upcoming project.
He wrote in his post: “Happy to introduce you to the captivating world of our upcoming project Jaan-e-Jahan written by Rida Bilal, directed by Qasim Ali Mureed,”.
He further wrote that “the drama is produced by Samina Humayun Saeed and Sana Shahnawaz coming soon on a TV screen near you.”
The actor has showcased his acting talent in many well-known dramas before but had announced his decision to withdraw from the showbiz industry over a year ago to devote more of his time to religion.
The actor’s last performance as Noori Natt in Bilal Lashari’s ‘The Legend of Maula Jatt‘, one of Pakistan’s highest-grossing films of all time, had his fans gripped to the screen. He had starred alongside Fawad Khan and Mahira Khan in Lashari’s magnum opus.
In an exclusive interview with Geo TV earlier, Abbasi had spoken of his role in “The Legend Maula Jatt” project that was touted as the game-changer and saviour of Pakistani cinema while dishing on the challenges he faced in the process of transforming into the barbaric Noori Natt.
“It takes a lot of guts to handle the kind of pressure that comes with such projects but you eventually get the courage to deal with it,” Abbasi had said.
Abbasi had further added that if one chooses to do such projects then they must ‘learn to tackle the challenges that come with it’ while adding: “As for us; me and Bilal [Lashari], we have become immune to it now.”
In pictures: PSL trophies over the years
A brand new trophy was unveiled for the eighth edition of the Pakistan Super League (PSL) by the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) on Thursday.
The 24-carat “Supernova Trophy” was revealed at the Shalimar Gardens in Lahore and has left fans reeling.
The PSL trophy is more than just an award, it is in many ways the biggest trophy a cricket team can win in Pakistan, given that in the last 8 years, PSL has come to be deeply loved by fans.
At such a time, let’s take a look at the journey of PSL trophies over the years.
It must be noted that in 2020, the PCB announced that the PCB trophy revealed that year was here to stay. Therefore, between 2020 and 2022, the same trophy was used, and the winning team’s name was embossed on it each of the three years.
