Pakistan’s cricket sensation, Shaheen Shah Afridi, and Ansha Afridi, the daughter of sports star Shahid Afridi, sealed their commitment to each other in a grand wedding ceremony held in vibrant Karachi on Tuesday evening.
This union was the culmination of a journey that began earlier this year with an intimate nikkah ceremony on February 3rd, where the couple exchanged their sacred vows in the presence of close family and friends.
Among the esteemed guests who graced the occasion was none other than the captain of the Pakistani cricket team, Babar Azam. Social media was abuzz with heartwarming videos capturing the skipper’s warm embrace of the talented fast bowler, Shaheen Shah Afridi. Azam extended his heartfelt congratulations to the newlyweds through a touching post on the popular social media platform, X.
However, the comments on Babar Azam’s post have also been restricted to avoid further public speculations.
Prior to the wedding festivities, Shaheen Shah Afridi shared a cherished moment with Captain Azam. The snapshot depicted both cricketers seated side by side, with Shaheen captioning it simply as “family,” a testament to the close-knit bonds forged in the world of cricket.
What came off as interesting was the timeliness of the post which hinted that Shaheen Afridi must have felt some sort of pressure to prioritise his professional standing over his wedding as the social media post came four hours before the wedding nuptials, while he still hasn’t shared a glimpse from his own wedding. The controversy began as the young Afridi was anticipating the role of captaincy for himself.

Following this solemn moment, a splendid reception was hosted for the newlyweds at the prestigious DHA Golf and Country Club, Karachi. The event saw the presence of some esteemed members of the national cricket team, who joined in Shaheen and Ansha at the nuptials.
This wedding celebration is one among many that have graced the cricketing world this year. Earlier in January, Shadab Khan announced his own nikkah ceremony, urging fans and well-wishers to respect the privacy of his family and his beloved wife while sending their prayers and love.
Earlier, Shan Masood tied the knot with Nische Khan in a splended ceremony in Peshawar in January. Meanwhile, Haris Rauf also embarked on his marital journey with Muzna Masood Malik in a daytime nikah ceremony held in the heart of Islamabad in December.
