Another Indian cricketer is ready to tie the knot in near future. Irfan Pathan is going to be married this February. As per the sources, the bride’s name is Safa.
According to Times of India, Irfan had said at earlier, “The news of me getting married in February is true. Beyond that, I don’t want to say much on this and will issue a small statement in a few days.”
As per news sources from very close of Irfan, “The wedding preparations are on in full swing and the family has already ordered a diamond necklace for Irfan’s bride and for his sister, apart from other jewellery from a reputed jeweller in Surat who had provided jewellery for Yusuf’s wedding too. If not in the first week of February, the wedding should take place in the second week.”
Irfan Pathan made debut for India in 2003 as a pacer. Later he was also handy with the bat. But several injuries made Irfan’s career a bit tougher. He has not featured in the national squad since 2012. Recently, he showed his extraordinary performances as an all-rounder in the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy 2015-16. He was the highest wicket-taker in that tournament.
Irfan’s elder brother Yusuf Pathan, who also played for India, had married in 2013 and later he became a father of a baby boy in 2014.
Irfan said, “2016 will be an exciting year for me, both professionally and personally. Ghar pe agar ek bete ki Shaadi ho jaaye, toh doosre pe thoda pressure toh hota hi hai. But my family is very relaxed about it and they don’t put any unnecessary pressure on me. The world will know when I decide to tie the knot.”
Before Irfan, many other Indian cricketers got either engaged or married in 2015. Those players were – Suresh Raina, Harbhajan Singh, Dinesh Kartik, Rohit Sharma, Mohit Sharma. Yuvraj Singh and Robin Uthappa are also very close to joining this list as they have already proposed to their girlfriends.
