2 legendary cricketers whose sons-in-law will play in 2023 ODI World Cup

Families in the game of cricket are not a new thing. We have seen father-son, siblings and even cousins be a part of the game. Similarly, we might see the combination of father-in-law and son-in-law in the upcoming 2023 ODI World Cup. On that note, here, we take a look at the list of two legendary cricketers whose sons-in-law will play in the 2023 ODI World Cup.

1) Shahid Afridi – Shaheen Afridi

Shaheen Afridi recently got married to legendary Pakistan all-rounder Shahid Afridi’s daughter. There were rumours for a long time and they were put to rest with the recent ceremony.

While Shahid was terrific for Pakistan, his son-in-law is slowly following in his footsteps. He is one of the best pacers in the game right now. Especially when it comes to bowling in the powerplay, there are not many who are as good as Shaheen in the game at the moment. In recent months, the youngster has also added some batting value to his game. He is also a part of the leadership group and will play a crucial role in India later this year.


2) Saqlain Mushtaq – Shadab Khan

Saqlain Mushtaq is also one of the legendary cricketers whose son-in-laws will play in the 2023 ODI World Cup. Not many know but Shadab Khan is married to Pakistan legend Saqlain Mushtaq’s daughter.

Like Shaheen Afridi, Shadab Khan will form a vital component in Pakistan’s campaign. He might, as well, be announced as the vice-captain of the squad. While Shadab will lead the spin attack, he will also hold a crucial place in the batting department. He is known to break crucial partnerships with the ball and with the bat, Shadab is popular for helping Pakistan recover from dangerous situations. Both these attributes will be necessary for the squad in the forthcoming World Cup.
