Aug 4, 2022
Muttiah Muralitharan and Madhimalar Ramamurthy
The most successful bowler in cricket history, Muttiah Muralitharan has a record that only a few can imagine coming close to matching. The Sri Lankan legend boasts an incredible 1347 wickets across all forms of international cricket, with him playing his last game in 2011.
Hasan Ali and Samiya Arzoo
Pakistani pacer Hasan Ali has a bit of a cult following amongst his fans, given his entertaining antics on the cricket field. His career hit a zenith in 2017, as he bowled Pakistan to the ICC Champions Trophy and won the Player of the Tournament award. Hasan married Samiya Arzoo, a flight engineer from India, in Dubai in 2019. Samiya hails from Chandeni in Haryana and her family is based out of Faridabad.
Shaun Tait and Mashoom Singha
Tait played a pivotal role in Australia clinching the ICC Cricket World Cup in 2007 and his thunderbolts were a handful and then some, leaving many a batter prancing around in his crease. During his stint with the Rajasthan Royals (RR) in the IPL, Tait met model Mashoom Singha. The duo began dating and were engaged in 2013 before tying the knot the following year.
Glenn Maxwell and Vini Raman
The Victorian, aside from captaining the Melbourne Stars in the Big Bash League (BBL) and representing Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in the IPL, is one of the mainstays in the Australian setup. Maxwell got engaged to Indian-based pharmacist Vini Raman in 2020, before the duo tied the knot prior to this year's IPL.
Shoaib Malik and Sania Mirza
One of the most famous matches in the sport was made in 2010 when Pakistani all-rounder Shoaib Malik got hitched to Indian tennis superstar Sania Mirza. Their wedding generated plenty of buzz and attention across the borders of both countries.
