Social media is abuzz with rumors of Mohammad Shami marrying tennis star Sania Mirza. Both Shami and Mirza are divorcees and big names in their respective fields of sports.

Sania is India’s finest women’s tennis player, while Shami is a champion speed bowler, with his strong performance at the ODI World Cup 2023 propelling the Indian cricket team to the final.

While Mirza recently retired from the game, Mohammad Shami is out of action as he recovers from knee surgery.  Shami last featured for India in T20 World Cup 2024 where he was the highest wicket-taker in the tournament.

Since then, he missed the IPL 2024 and multiple other series, as he works towards regaining strength for the upcoming five-Test series in Australia later this year.

On the other hand, Sania Mirza, an Indian tennis icon, recently embarked on a religious journey to Hajj, almost 5 months after announcing her breakup from cricketer husband Shoaib Malik. Sania, who has also retired from playing tennis, was most recently serving as a commentator for the famous French Open 2024.
