Pakistan all-rounder, Shoaib Malik is hoping to bring his Indian wife, Sania Mirza to Sri Lanka next year when he arrives to play in the second year of the Lanka Premier League (LPL) T20 Cricket Tournament.
Sania and son Izhaan Mirza Malik recently went to Pakistan to support Shoaib in the Pakistan Super League (PSL).
“Yes, they came to Pakistan. The reason being I had not met my son for about seven months. Sania came there and met my mother and family also. We then went to Dubai, where we stayed for a few weeks,” Malik told reporters during a virtual media conference.
Shoaib and Sania had spent some time with former India Captain, M. S. Dhoni and his wife Sakshi in Dubai.
Malik also revealed the reason for not bringing the family to Sri Lanka.
“My (two year) son may find it difficult to take so many flights but yes, they will come here next year.”
“Sri Lanka is at my heart. I enjoy the hospitality of this country. I have so many cricketing friends in this country. I love the people here. Enjoy the food.”
