Sania Mirza is easily the best Tennis player to have ever been born in India. In a country dominated by cricket, her dedication and efficiency in her field led to many being emotionally invested in her progress every time a Grand Slam rolled around.
Her marriage to Pakistan cricketer Shoaib Malik made major news in 2010. Data from Google Trends showed that she was the most-searched woman tennis player and Indian sportsperson in 2010. Sania has now confirmed, that just like her, her sister will also tie the knot with a cricketer.
“She (Anam) is actually getting married in December. We just came back from her bachelorette trip to Paris. We are really excited,” Sania told.
“She is marrying a lovely boy. His name is Asad and he happens to be the son of Mohammad Azharuddin and we are really excited about it,” Sania was quoted as saying on Saturday.
After Sania Mirza posted a picture with Asad on Social Media with the caption: ‘Family’, fans became speculating on the possibility of Asad getting hitched with her sister. As it turns out, the rumors were indeed true as confirmed straight from the horse’s mouth.
Sania’s sister, Anam Mirza, is a fashion stylist and styles Sania regularly for events. Asad, on the other hand, is a cricketer like his father. Unfortunately, he has not seen the same success on the pitch like his father had and currently plies his trade for Goa cricket.
