Left-arm pacer Shaheen Shah Afridi will soon be engaged to former Pakistan captain Shahid Afridi’s daughter.
The fast bowler has asked for the cricketing legend’s daughter’s hand in marriage, both families have confirmed.
As per some reports, while the two families have reached an understanding, a formal engagement will be announced some time later.
Shaheen’s father Ayaz Khan told the media that both families have well established relations and that Shahid's family has agreed to the proposal. He added that a formal engagement ceremony will be held soon.
A representative of Shahid's family meanwhile told Geo Super that the proposal had been in discussion for the past two years.
The former cricketer's family said that since Shaheen is playing cricket and Shahid's daughter is still studying, the engagement has not yet been formally announced.
They added that the engagement could be formalised shortly before the wedding in two years' time.
Meanwhile, the family requested the matter not be speculated on and that Shahid will make an official announcement when the time is right.
