Pakistan’s white-ball captain Babar Azam and Indian tennis ace Sania Mirza recently got engaged in a hilarious ‘devar-bhabhi’ conversation on social media.
Babar received a jolly ‘threat’ from none other than the wife of experienced allrounder Shoaib Malik for not calling Sania his favourite ‘bhabhi’.
In an Instagram Live session, Babar, who is well-known for his class on the cricket field, tried to tease Sania by saying that former captain Sarfraz Ahmed’s wife Khushbakht is his favourite.
It all happened after Shoaib posed the question to the Pakistani ace batter, asking who is his favourite bhabhi. Babar’s reply ‘infuriated’ the lovely Sania who replied” “I will kill you.” Sania also said that Babar would not longer be allowed to sleep on their couch anymore.
Sania wasn’t the only Bhabhi mad at Babar. Former Pakistan International Azhar Mahmood’s wife, Ebba Qureshi also got angry for not being chosen as the favourite bhabhi. “Mardaalungi”, wrote Ebba while adding ‘Nice Thanks. You’re not invited anymore.’
Meanwhile, Shoaib Malik believes that Pakistan and India should resume bilateral ties for the cricket fraternity to enjoy.
“I think the world badly needs this rivalry to resume, in the same way, that world cricket needs the Ashes,” Malik told PakPassion.net.
“Could England and Australia imagine Test cricket without an Ashes series? Both series are played with the same kind of passion and have such a great history, so it is a shame that we don’t play right now,” he added.
“Also, I have Pakistani friends who love to talk about Indian cricketers with respect and admiration. Similarly, I and my Pakistan teammates are given such love and support when we play in India so it is a rivalry that I would like to see return as soon as it is possible,” the 38-year-old concluded.
