Pakistani pace bowler Hasan Ali says he will invite cricketers from India to his wedding with Indian national Shamia Arzoo to be held in Dubai on 20 September.
Ali did not specify which Indian cricketers would be on the list of invitees but said he would be happy if they turn up.
"I will invite the Indian cricket team and players to come to my marriage ceremony, after all, we are all cricket mates," Hasan told 'Urdu Express' newspaper in Karachi.
"“I would love it if some Indian players come to the ceremony in Dubai, it would be lovely. The contest is on the field and not off it. In the end, we are all professional cricketers and must share happiness." - Hasan Ali
The 25-year-old Ali had earlier confirmed his wedding with Shamia, ending speculations surrounding his marriage with an Indian national.
"Our families wanted to keep this a low key affair but since the matter has come out in the media I have decided to make an official announcement to ensure they are no speculations surrounding my marriage," Hasan had told a news conference in his hometown, Gujranwala, where Shamia will reside post marriage.
Shamia holds a degree in Aeronautics from an Indian university and is a flight engineer with the Emirates airlines. She is based in Dubai while her family members are settled in New Delhi.
