Babar Azam lights up cricketer Aliya Riaz’s wedding in traditional dress; Pakistan stars align for mega event

Beyond the glitz and glamour, the wedding served as a beautiful reminder of the unifying power of cricket in Pakistan. The presence of so many cricketing legends, young and old, transcended generations and celebrated the enduring legacy of the sport in Pakistani culture.

Cricket took center stage in Lahore on Friday, not for a nail-biting match, but for the beautiful wedding of Pakistani women’s cricket all-rounder Aliya Riaz. The ceremony, held at a private farmhouse, was a star-studded affair, with Pakistan’s cricket captain Babar Azam himself stealing the show.

Gathering of Pakistan Cricket Team legends

Aliya Riaz tied the knot with commentator Ali Younis, brother of former Pakistani captain Waqar Younis. The guest list boasted a who’s who of Pakistani cricket, both past and present.

Captains like Azhar Ali, Misbah-ul-Haq, and Inzamam-ul-Haq rubbed shoulders with current stars like Mohammad Yousuf and Mushtaq Ahmed. Female cricketing heroes like Nida Dar and Anam Amin also joined the celebration.

Babar Azam: The Star Attraction

While the event was a celebration of love for the newlyweds, all eyes were inevitably drawn to Babar Azam. Dressed in a regal off-white sherwani, Azam’s presence exuded elegance and charm. He mingled with guests, sharing warm greetings and engaging in lively conversations.

His interactions with former cricket chairman Ramiz Raja were particularly noted, highlighting the strong sense of camaraderie within the Pakistani cricket fraternity. Amongst the constellation of cricketing stars, Babar Azam shone brightly, a symbol of grace and sophistication.

Cricket: Unifying Thread in Pakistan

Beyond the glitz and glamour, the wedding served as a beautiful reminder of the unifying power of cricket in Pakistan. The presence of so many cricketing legends, young and old, transcended generations and celebrated the enduring legacy of the sport in Pakistani culture.

As Aliya Riaz and Ali Younis embarked on their new chapter, Babar Azam’s presence wasn’t just a mark of respect for the couple, but also a testament to the enduring spirit of Pakistani cricket, a sport that continues to bind the nation together.
