Bangladeshi all rounder Shakib Al Hasan is all set to get married and tie a wedding knot on Wednesday 12-12-12 with Umme Ahmed Shishir, a computer science student studying in United States. According to Shakib’s family sources, Shakib will walk down the aisle with Umme Ahmed Shishir, who originally belonged to a district in Narayanganj, a city in central Bangladesh.
Umme Ahmed Shishir is doing software engineering from Minnesota University in United States and her family also lives in America.
The friend said: ”They want to make the occasion memorable by marrying on 12/12/12. But only a few people are invited in the ceremony”.
A spokesman for the upmarket Ruposhi Bangla hotel in Dhaka said the couple would hold a small family party at the hotel. “To the best of my knowledge, it’s a wedding party”.
Shakib Al Hasan introduced his future wife, Umme Ahmed Shishir, to fellow cricketers on Monday during the Bangladesh-West Indies T20 cricket match in the capital Dhaka. According to Bengali daily Samakal, the left-arm spinner met Shishir, aMinnesota University graduate, in London in 2010 when he was playing for English county side Worcestershire.
Social media was flooded with photos of the couple. Comments from some heartbroken girls questioned the cricketer’s choice in marrying an allegedly hard-partying expatriate.
