The Asia Cup 2018 is going on and arch-rivals India and Pakistan have come face to face twice so far. Interestingly in both the matches, India comfortably defeated the Pakistani team. In the second match that was played at Dubai International Stadium, India won by 9 wickets and the only Pak cricketer who could face Indian bowlers was Shoaib Malik. He scored 78 runs that helped his team score a respectable total of 237 runs.
Shoaib Malik is very popular in India also as the Indian tennis player Sania Mirza has tied the knot with him. In the second match of ongoing Asia Cup, Shoaib was fielding near the boundary line and just then crowd behind him started shouting, “Jiju, Jiju” (brother-in-law). To this, Shoaib waved towards the fans and his affectionate gesture won hearts.
The video went viral and when Sania came across it, she couldn’t stop laughing. She shared it on her Instagram story with laughing emoticons and wrote, “#TheThingsThatHappenOnTheBoundaryLine”
Here’s the video:

As per Sania, she gets much respect in Pak as people call her “Bhabhi” (sister-in-law); however, this is for the first time that crowd shouted “Jiju” for Shoaib.
The couple got married eight years ago and is expecting a baby soon.
