Mumbai, June 5 (IANS) First, Pakistani cricketer Shoaib Malik comes to India and marries Indian tennis star Sania Mirza. Then before we know it the pair moves to the no-man's land in Dubai where Malik joins hands with Salman Khan to play against Pakistan!
At the Dubai Sports City May 27, Shoaib surprised everyone by playing in Salman's Indian team against his fellow teammates led by Shoaib Akhtar who played against Salman's Being Human team from Bollywood.
Apparently Shoaib was reluctant to play in Salman's team. It was wife Sania who convinced him.
'Sania Mirza is a huge Salman fan. When Salman asked her husband to play in his team, Shoaib Malik was naturally reluctant. But then Sania's persuasive powers over her husband worked. When it came to Salman, Sania wouldn't hear a no even from her own husband,' said a source from Salman's team.
Arbaaz Khan, who was also there, said: 'It was a friendly match with mixed teams nothing like playing for or against. All in good spirit and for fun.'
