Islamabad: Shoaib Malik, the former Pakistani cricket captain, recently tied the knot with Pakistani actress Sana Javed in a private ceremony held in Karachi on January 20, 2024. The couple reportedly met on the sets of the game show “Jeeto Pakistan”.

Shoaib Malik was previously married to Ayesha Siddiqui from 2002-2010 and then to Indian tennis legend Sania Mirza in April 2010. On the other hand, Sana was earlier married to Pakistani singer Umair Jaswal. The duo got married in 2020 and reportedly parted ways in November 2023.

Before marrying Sana Javed, there were rumors that Shoaib Malik was romantically involved with Pakistani actress Ayesha Omar. Earlier, reports claimed that Shoaib had cheated on Sania Mirza with Ayesha. The rumors gained traction in the media when the cricketer and the actress posed for a few bold photos as part of a commercial photoshoot. At the time, Ayesha denied these claims and stated that they were baseless.
