Shoaib Malik may not be able to play international cricket for Pakistan until he is cleared by the PCB, but he can still experience the thrill of playing a sport against international-level opposition. Malik has taken to playing tennis with his wife, Indian professional tennis player Sania Mirza, and has even claimed to have beaten her, albeit on a mini-court.
“I play tennis with Sania twice a week,” Malik told the Express Tribune.” I beat her on a mini-court recently.” The Pakistan allrounder took up tennis after marrying Mirza and his new goal is to beat her on a regular court. He also claims his wife’s game has improved after she married him.
Mirza is also a cricket fan and they root for their respective countries when India play Pakistan.
