Hasan Ali, the Pakistan fast bowler, is all set to get married to Shamia Arzoo, an Indian girl. She belongs to Mewat, a district in the state of Haryana. Hasan is all set to enter the wedlock on Tuesday, August 20. The duo is set to tie the knots Dubai at the Atlantis Palm Hotel. 10 of their family members will be leaving for the United Arab Emirates (UAE) on Saturday, August 17.
Shamia’s father Liaquat Ali mentioned about the same. The family members include son Akbar Ali, wife Rahisha, son-in-law Altaf Hussain, daughters Bilkis and Mumtaz and a few other members. Shami’s father is a former Block Development and Panchayat Officer. Shamia has a strong educational background. She has a B. Tech (Aeronautical) degree from Manav Rachna University.
As per reports in Amar Ujala, currently, Shamia is working as a flight engineer in Emirates Airlines. Hasan won’t be the first Pakistan cricketer to marry an Indian girl. Former cricketer Zaheer Abbas and Mohsin Khan’s better-halves are from India as well. Present national team all-rounder Shoaib Malik is also married to Sania Mirza, a renowned tennis star, since April 12, 2010.
Hasan Ali’s indifferent journey
Coming to his cricketing career, Hasan Ali hasn’t had the greatest of times by any stretch of the imagination. He was in the 15-man squad for the 2019 World Cup and he only managed to take part in four ODIs, picking up only a couple of wickets at an alarming economy rate. After the game versus India at the Old Trafford in Manchester where he gave away 84 runs, Hasan lost his place.
He made his ODI debut back in August 2016 and put himself forth as one of the brightest prospects in Pakistan cricket. He had a stupendous outing in the 2017 edition of the Champions Trophy in England following which he got the award for the Emerging Cricket of the Year.
However, his career has fallen apart a wee bit, though he is still in the radar of the selectors. The 25-year-old from Punjab has played nine Tests, 53 ODIs and 30 T20Is in which he has picked up 148 wickets. He is no mug with the bat, having scored a couple of the fifties in the ODI format.
