Much has been said and written about the worsening relationship between Pakistan cricket team captain Babar Azam and marquee pacer Shaheen Shah Afridi. However, the cricketers quashed the outside noise as they greeted each other in a heartwarming manner at the wedding ceremony of Shaheen. Babar arrived at the wedding venue in a grand style and then gave a big hug to Shaheen who got married to Ansha, the daughter of former Pakistan skipper Shahid Afridi, just days after the conclusion of the Asia Cup 2023.
Several pictures and videos of Babar and Shaheen’s moments together on the occasion have surfaced on social media. The pictures haven’t only rubbished the rumours that were being spread on the internet but also emphasised the brotherly bond the two carry.
Here are some pictures and videos:
