Pakistan’s former captain Shoaib Malik announced on Saturday that he has married a second time to the country’s popular actor Sana Javed in Karachi after getting divorced from Sania Mirza.
The cricketer who was previously married to Indian tennis star, Sania, with whom he has a son, released a photograph on a social media platform with his new wife, with the words “And We created you in pairs”.
Their five-year-old son Izaan lives with Sania.
Sania’s father Imran Mirza told PTI that “it was a ‘khula'”, which refers to the right of a Muslim woman to unilaterally divorce her husband.
There have been strong rumours since 2022 about differences between Shoaib and Sania leading to a split, and they have rarely been seen together in the last couple of years.
