Pakistan fast bowler Mohammad Asif, who has been suspended by the ICC for alleged spot-fixing in England, has finally brought his wife home after six months since he got married. Media reports suggested that the fast bowler was not able to take his wife, Sana Hilal, home since he tied the knot with her due to his commitments with the Pakistan national team.
"It is a relief to finally bring my wife home. We have waited for a while now to be together as I have been busy on foreign tours with the team," Asif told the media at the wedding reception.
The couple was reportedly welcomed in a grand manner in a posh defence area where many friends and relatives including Asif''s teammates including Salman Butt, Mohammad Hafeez, Kamran Akmal, Umar Akmal, Misbah-ul-Haq and some former players and officials witnessed the function.
Asif entered into Nikah with Sana after breaking up with actress and model Veena Malik after a much publicised affair which ended in acrimony with both going to court against each other over a monetary dispute earlier this year. Asif said he hoped that his wife would bring him good luck and change his life and cricket career for the better.
"I am feeling happy that finally I can settle down to married life. It was a marriage of my own will," he said.
