The famous Indian Tennis star, Sania Mirza has recently confirmed that her sister Anam Mirza will be getting married this December. She also revealed the bride and he is none other than former India cricketer Mohammad Azharuddin’s son, Asad. While Azharuddin was recently elected as the president of the Hyderabad Cricket Association, his son has been playing for Goa in the domestic tournaments. On the other hand, Anam Mirza is a fashion stylist.
Asaduddin made his first-class debut last season during the Ranji Trophy. He played only two games for Goa but failed to make it big. Even, in the three innings he played, he scored just 17 runs at an average of 5.66 and was subsequently excluded from the side. He also represented Hyderabad Cricket Association Colts XI in 2009.
However, Sania Mirza too has been off the court for quite some time now. She has recently hosted the Indian Sports Honours which, however, celebrate the outstanding sports personalities in India and their contribution to their respective sports.
“She (Anam) is actually getting married in December. We just came back from her bachelorette trip in Paris. We are really excited,” Sania Mirza told Times of India. “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.”
After Sania Mirza posted a picture on Instagram with Asad which had a caption: ‘Family’, the speculations were going on the possibility of Asad getting married with her sister. However, the news became true as the tennis star herself confirmed the news.
However, there have been multiple occasions when the wives and girlfriends of cricketers have not been allowed on their tours. Even they sometimes have been blamed for their respective partners’ failures. Indian captain Virat Kohli tied the knot to Bollywood actress Anushka Sharma and she had to face the criticism and people trolled her for Kohli’s poor form.
However, Sania Mirza came to her support at that time, saying, “Anushka Sharma is blamed if Virat makes a zero, like what does that have anything to do with anything. It makes no sense.”
