Pakistani fast bowler Hassan Ali on Tuesday began new innings as he tied nuptial knot with Mewat girl Shamia Arzoo in a wedding ceremony.
The 25-year-old cricketer had shared a picture of himself on the "last night as a bachelor". Hasan Ali also shared a video of his "mehndi night" in the middle of the desert, where he was seen doing his signature wicket-taking celebration. "Hassan Ali doing his wicket-taking celebration at a desert safari ahead of his Mehndi today," Pakistani journalist Saj Sadiq captioned the video on Twitter.

As reported earlier, Shamia, 26, is from Haryana. She is a flight engineer with Emirates Airlines, while her family members are settled in New Delhi.
Hasan Ali has now become the fourth Pakistani cricketer to get married with an Indian girl, after Zaheer Abbas, Mohsin Khan and Shoaib Malik.
Ali, who has played nine Tests and 53 ODIs, played an instrumental role in Pakistan's 2017 Champions Trophy triumph.
However, his form and stock has plummeted in the past few years. The 25-year-old struggled at the World Cup in England and Wales and was dropped from the playing eleven midway through the tournament.
The cricketer today shared his pictures of Mehndi ceremony on micro blogging site twitter with a tweet, “mehndi night in the middle of the desert.”
On Monday night, another tweet by the Pakistani fast bowler said, “Last night as a bachelor..!looking forward” with smilies in between the text. In reply, Indian tennis star Sania Mirza had sent extremely amusing wishes to the Pakistani fast bowler in her tweet. Replying to Hasan Ali’s Twitter post, Indian tennis star Sania Mirza congratulated the Pakistan cricketer, but at the same time made a special request. “Congratulations Hassan wish you both a lifetime of love and happiness ... this time you’ll have to treat us to more than Nandos though,” wrote Sania Mirza, who is married to Pakistan all-rounder Shoaib Malik.
A video of the Pakistani bowler is also going viral on social media in which he is celebrating his wedding the way he celebrates getting a wicket. The news of Shamia, a girl from Haryana’s Mewat who works with Emirate Airlines, marrying Pakistani fast bowler Hassan Ali had hit headlines in July.
Shamia had reportedly met Ali during a random dinner in Dubai. Impressed, Ali courted Shamia and sent a marriage proposal to her, which was duly accepted by the Mewat girl.
