Former captain of the Pakistan cricket team, Shoaib Malik has finally opened up on divorce rumours with his wife and former Indian tennis star, Sania Mirza.

The star couple did not spend Eid together and the rumour about their divorce again went viral over various social media platforms.

As per Shoaib, he wanted to spend time with Sania on Eid. However, they could not spend time together because of professional commitments.

“Khabre chal rahi hai, taluqat acche nahi hai (Rumours are floating around that all’s not well in the relationship). Nothing on it. On Eid I would like to say that had we been together it would have been great. But she has got commitments in IPL. She is doing shows in IPL. That is why we are not together. We share love like always. I miss her a lot, that I can say,” said Shoaib.

“There are professional commitments. But Eid is a day when you miss the people who are close to you a lot. This is way neither I released a statement nor did she,” said the cricketer during a television programme.

Notably, Sania and Shoaib got married in 2010. They have a son named Izhaan. Divorce rumours started gaining momentum on various social media platforms after Sania shared some cryptic posts on Instagram indicating about their separation.
