Amidst rumours of his separation from former India tennis player Sania Mirza, Pakistani cricket star Shoaib Malik got married to well-known Pakistani actor Sana Javed. Sana Javed and Shoaib Malik were rumoured to be dating, and the cricket player from Pakistan fanned the flames by wishing the actor on her birthday last year. "Happy Birthday, Buddy," Shoaib Malik posted on his Instagram page along with a picture of the two of them.

Earlier today (January 20), Sana Javed posted pictures from her wedding ceremony with Shoaib on social media. The caption reads, "And we created you in pairs." The post includes pictures from their wedding. Sana changed her name to Sana Shoaib Malik in the bio section of her Instagram account. 

Fans of the star cricketer were taken aback after rumours of his separation made headlines on both sides of the border. 

Shoaib Malik got divorced from his first wife, Ayesha Siddiqui, in 2010 and got married to Sania Mirza later that year. Sana was earlier married to singer Umar Jaswal. They got married in 2020 and parted ways in 2023.

The public disclosure of Shoaib Malik's marriage overlaps with his divorce from Indian tennis player Sania Mirza, fueling rumours of their split. The complex details of their relationship have garnered public attention, as Shoaib's life has undergone an enormous shift. It remains to be seen if Sania will soon make the divorce announcement, given how this post by Shoib has left everyone surprised. 

Sania Mirza's cryptic post that reignited divorce speculations with Malik

Earlier on Wednesday, Sania sparked rumours of a divorce with the Pakistani cricket player by sharing a cryptic post on her Instagram handle. Her post read: "Marriage is hard. Divorce is hard. Choose your hard. Obesity is hard. Being fit is hard. Choose your hard. Being in debt is hard. Being financially disciplined is hard. Choose your hard. Communication is hard. Not communicating is hard. Choose your hard. Life will never be easy. It will always be hard. But we can choose our hard. Pick wisely."
