Pakistan and Cricket are two entities that can never be separated from one another. Not only is cricket the most played sport in Pakistan, but the players are no less than superheroes for us Pakistanis. It is only fitting that we love the families of these cricketers as much as we love these players.

Here are pictures of families of some of Pakistan’s cricketing heroes:

Muhammad Irfan

The seven-foot, fast bowler is as gentle as a human being as fiery he is as a bowler. He is married to Sadia Irfan (who is pretty tall herself).

Inzamam ul Haq

Wasim Akram

The Sultan of Swing and arguably the most handsome cricketer to have played for Pakistan, Wasim Akram recently married an Aussie beauty, Shaniera Thompson, after the tragic passing away of his previous wife, Huma Wasim. He has two sons, Taimur and Akbar, and a newly-born daughter, Ayla. There’s a pretty strong royal feeling about this entire lot.
