The Ballsy Cross Border Romance of Sania and Shoaib

April 5, 2010

Cricket is definitely not a gentleman’s game if it is being played between the quarreling neighbors. It might be more apt to call it a religion, especially since winning or losing a game can lead to religious rioting in either country. If there’s an India-Pakistan match on, I generally pretend complete ignorance and stay indoors.

But news just reached me in New York that there’s a different kind of India-Pakistan match in the offing. Indian Tennis Ace Sania Mirza is all set to say “Qubool” to Shoaib Malik, former captain of the Pakistani cricket team. The event is momentous enough to make it to the Sports page of the New York Times! And the wedding is set to take place in my hometown, Hyderabad. Needless to say, it has raked up quite the controversy.

Apparently it all started when Shoaib helped Sania out with the small matter of getting a Pakistani visa. Well, it’s definitely going to be a ballsy romance.
