Sania Mirza Marrying Mohammed Shami?

Sania Mirza Marrying Mohammed Shami?

Sania Mirza and Mohammed Shami are two of the most accomplished sportspersons India has produced in recent decades.

Sania Mirza is India’s greatest women's tennis player, while Mohammed Shami is a champion pace bowler whose stellar performance at the ODI World Cup 2023 propelled the Indian cricket team into the final.

Recently, a rumor began circulating that Sania Mirza and Mohammed Shami were going to get married.

Sania Mirza and Pakistan cricket star Shoaib Malik divorced earlier this year, and Shami is also separated from his wife, Hasin Jahan.

However, there is no truth to the wedding rumors. Sania Mirza's father, Imran Mirza, told NDTV, "This is all rubbish. She has not even met him."

Indian tennis icon Sania Mirza recently embarked on a sacred journey to Hajj, about five months after announcing her split with cricketer husband Shoaib Malik.

Having retired from professional tennis, Sania was most recently working as a pundit for the prestigious French Open 2024.

On social media, she revealed that she is preparing for a 'transformative experience' through her pilgrimage, from which she hopes to return as a better human being.

In a post on social media on Sunday, Sania wrote: "As I prepare for this transformative experience, I humbly ask for your forgiveness for any wrongdoings and shortcomings."

Sania further expressed her hope that Allah accepts her prayers and guides her on this blessed path.

She added: "I am deeply fortunate and feel immensely grateful. Please keep me in your thoughts and prayers as I embark on this journey of a lifetime. I hope to come back as a better human being with a humble heart and stronger Imaan."

Sania was also recently seen on a popular comedy show, where she spoke with comedian Kapil Sharma about her illustrious career, particularly her successful partnership with Martina Hingis in 2015-16.

During the conversation, Sania shared: "I think all the women sitting on this couch can understand this...when you hit a streak (winning back-to-back), athletes like to call it being 'in the zone'... Honestly, I think that's the best way I can describe what Martina and I had for those six months."
