“Both families have reached a decision and my daughter is going to be engaged to Shaheen,” Afridi said according to PTI.
He added that a formal engagement will be announced soon. Shaheen’s father Ayaz Khan also confirmed that he had sent the proposal to Afridi’s family for his son and it has been accepted.
“We are very happy and both families have been in discussions for the last few months and hopefully now dates will be finalised soon,” he said.
In his 22 T20Is Shaheen Afridi has picked up 24 wickets, while he has also claimed 45 wickets in the 21 ODIs. He has also played 15 Test for Pakistan and has 48 wickets under his belt.
Shaheen and Shahid Afridi both were last seen in action in the Pakistan Super League (PSL) 2021 which was postponed after several positive cases of coronavirus.
Shaheen was in excellent form for his side Lahore Qalandars and had picked up nine wickets in just four matches. Shahid Afridi, on the other hand, had a terrible outing in the four matches for Multan Sultans as he failed to even open his account in three successive games.
