Pakistani fast bowler Shaheen Afridi has recently made headlines by announcing his decision to marry for the second time, with his wife Ansha Afridi. The couple had their first marriage ceremony, a nikah (religious ceremony for a Muslim couple to be legally married), on February 3 earlier this year.
The reason behind this second marriage is not due to them parting ways and remarrying. Instead, after having a modest start to their marital journey, Shaheen and Ansha have decided to host a grander celebration of their love.
This second wedding ceremony is planned for September 19, 2023, which is just two days after the conclusion of the Asia Cup. The decision has certainly piqued the interest of fans and the media worldwide, as it’s uncommon for a couple to have two wedding ceremonies in such a short span of time.
