Mumbai: Former skipper of Pakistan Cricket team, Shaoib Malik has often lead his men to many cricketing victories in the past, but in an interesting turn of events, it was a game worth a dekko when Bollywood’s ultimate hunk Salman Khan pitted his ‘Being Human’ team against the Pakistan Cricket team.
News has it that Shoaib joined hands with Salman to fight it out with his known team-mates on perusal from his lovely wife Sania Mirza who is a big fan of Salman!
At the Dubai Sports City May 27, Shoaib surprised everyone by playing in Salman`s Indian team against his fellow team-mates led by Shoaib Akhtar, who played against Salman`s ‘Being Human’ team from Bollywood.
Initially, Shoaib was reluctant to play in Salman`s team. However, it was wife Sania who convinced him.
"Sania Mirza is a huge Salman fan.
When Salman asked her husband to play in his team, Shoaib Malik was naturally reluctant. But then Sania`s persuasive powers over her husband worked. When it came to Salman, Sania wouldn`t hear a no even from her own husband," said a source from Salman`s team.
Speaking to a news daily, Arbaaz Khan said: "It was a friendly match with mixed teams nothing like playing for or against. All in good spirit and for fun."
