Ending countless rumours surrounding his marriage with an Indian national, Pakistani fast-bowler Hasan Ali has finally confirmed that he is tying the knot with Samia Arzoo in Dubai on August 20.
Reports of Hasan’s marriage first surfaced earlier this week when the cricketer himself had asked the media that nothing was confirmed and that he would make an official announcement soon.
The 25-year-old held a press conference in his hometown Gujranwala on Friday, where he revealed that the Nikkah ceremony will be attended by only his family and close friends while the reception and other events of his marriage will take place later.
"I will be wearing a black and red sherwani suit while she will be dressed in Indian style," he added. Hasan said he had met Samia one year ago in Dubai and their friendship had grown since that meeting.
He will be the fourth Pakistani cricketer to get hitched with an Indian girl, after Zaheer Abbas, Mohsin Khan and Shoaib Malik.
