Former Indian captain Mohammad Azharuddin has tied the knot for the third time in his life.
According to the report carried out by Maharashtra Times, Azhar, who was previously married to Naureen and then actress Sangeeta Bijlani, has now married Shannon Marie of United States.
Azhar was dating with Shannon since 2013. They were first spoted togetehr on a vacation in Paris in 2013. However, back then Shannon had calimed that Azhar was just a friend.
Azharuddin was visiting his driver Jaan Mohammad’s family in Shamli to offer condolences. Jaan had been died in September this year. Maharashtra Times reported that Shannon was with him when he made this visit. Since she was covered in a burqa, she could not be recognised immediately.
However, the speculation and whispering ended by Azhar himself as he revealed that the burqa clad woman is her new wife.
Azhar was found guilty of match-fixing in 2000 and was subsequently banned from cricket for life. The ban was overturned in 2012 but Azhar’s career was over by then.
