Former Pakistan cricketer Shahid Afridi has finally opened up about his daughter Ansha’s wedding to fast bowler Shaheen Afridi. The two exchanged vows in an intimate nikah on February 3, this year.

Speaking to Samaa TV, Shahid Afridi said, “Shaheen's family was in touch with my family on this topic for a long time. A human should be a human, that is the most important thing.”

He added, “Shaheen is a great human. I didn't know him personally, the elders of our family used to know one another, but we lost contact [with each other]."

Talking about Shaheen’s attitude and qualities, the proud father-in-law added, "So whoever was playing domestic cricket with Shaheen praised his attitude and lauded him as a human being saying that he was very mature. So all those things were important for me that a human is a human."
