Pakistani cricketer Shoaib Malik, playing in his first Test match in five years has scored his maiden double ton. Playing against England, in Abu Dhabi, the 33 year-old has become the sixth Pakistani cricketer to score 200.The 248-run partnership of Malik and Asad Shafiq, who scored a ton, is the highest ever in a Pakistan vs England match for a fifth wicket. Shoaib, who's married to tennis ace Sania Mirza, has thanked his wife and called her his inspiration. Thereby winning this year's Cool Husband award.
Twitter has lost its mind over Shoaib and even exceeded expectations as people from both sides of the Indo-Pak border celebrate Shoaib's epic comeback.
@MirzaSania thank you for all the support and undying belief - always. Wish you were here ❤️— Shoaib Malik (@realshoaibmalik) October 13, 2015
Sania's performance inspired Shoaib Malik for a superb century, so we should assume that Kohli watched 'Dil Dhadkne Do' recently. #IndvsSA— Rofl Gandhi (@RoflGandhi_) October 14, 2015
