Thirty-one year old Baroda cricketer Irfan Pathan is the latest in the line of cricketers to settle down. The ace bowler Pathan joined the ranks of other players like Harbhajan Singh and Rohit Sharma who recently tied the knot as well.
Pathan married Safa Baig, a 21-year-old model from Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, in a low key ceremony last Thursday. The 31-year-old Irfan, who last played for India in 2012, hosted the wedding ceremony in Mecca. "Entering probably the most beautiful phase of my life.We both wish to thank everyone for your wishes & #blessings," Irfan wrote in his Twitter account.
Apart from being a model, Safa is also a popoular nail artist and is working for a PR firm.
Last November, Harbhajan Singh married actress Geeta Basra in a grand ceremony with celebrities in attendance, while another Indian player Rohit Sharma married Ritika Sajdeh in December.
Recently, cricket's favourite poster boy Yuvraj Singh also got engaged to British actress Hazel Keech, so it won't be a surprise if we hear wedding bells again anytime soon!
