Former Pakistan cricket team skipper Shoaib Malik has been dominating headlines after he announced his marriage to actress Sana Javed. Malik was previously married to Indian tennis ace Sania Mirza but her family made it clear that the couple got divorced. Amid the ongoing conversation, an old video has gone viral where Misbah-ul-Haq taunted Malik over ‘family issues’ during a cricket talk show. It was an episode of The Pavilion’ on A Sports where the anchor asked why Misbah was looking so happy on the sets. Malik, who was part of the panel along with legendary Pakistan fast bowler Wasim Akram, said that it was because he was away from his family. In response, Misbah responded – “If a person goes through an issue in their personal life, they think that everyone else has the same problem.”
While the off-field news led to a lot of debate on the internet, Malik has claimed a massive record on the cricket field. The veteran cricketer became the first Asian player ever and the second overall to score 13,000 runs in T20 cricket.

He achieved the feat during the Bangladesh Premier League (BPL) match between Fortune Barishal against Rangpur Riders and joined Chris Gayle in an elite list.
Malik also ended up taking a wicket as his side marched on to victory.
The Pakistan cricketer has already retired from Test and ODI cricket but he continues to play in the shortest format of the sport and will be available for selection in the T20 World Cup 2024.
