Rumours that cricketer Shoaib Malik and tennis ace Sania Mirza had split gained traction earlier. Sania and Shoaib had gotten hitched among much fanfare and controversy in 2010. They have a son: Izhaan.
Sania’s cryptic Instagram posts fuelled the rumours. She had recently taken to the picture-sharing site to post a story on where “broken hearts” were expected to go. Her team remained unavailable for comments when reached by Gulf News. Geo received no comments either from Shoaib’s team.
