Pak cricketer to marry Indian girl

Pace bowler Hasan Ali will become fourth high-profile Pakistani cricketer to marry an Indian girl when he ties the knot with Shamia Arzoo next month in Dubai. Hasan confirmed he had been seeing Haryana's Shamia for the last one year but said both families were yet to finalise the wedding date. "Yes I have been friends with an Indian girl whom I met in Dubai but the marriage is not final as yet that will be done by our families," he said when asked about media reports claiming that his wedding would take place on August 20.

"I don't know from where they (media) got the date. But families are yet to decide the date." Sources close to the cricketer said preparations have already begun at Hasan's home in Gujrwanwala and the marriage would take place at Atlantis Palm Hotel in Dubai on August 20.
