As per reports on Twitter, Pakistani cricket captain Babar Azam is all set to get married in December. Ahead of a crucial match against Bangladesh in the ongoing ICC Cricket World Cup 2023, Azam has grabbed attention for a surprising reason. Sources close to OneCricket revealed that Azam spent a significant sum of seven lakh rupees on a designer sherwani, a traditional Indian attire, for his upcoming wedding.

Additionally, he is said to have invested in a considerable amount of jewelry from a reputed jewelry-making company while enjoying the comfort of a luxurious five-star hotel.
With the wedding arrangements in full swing, Azam’s relatives are actively involved in the preparations. The timing of his wedding shopping, amidst the high-stakes international tournament, has sparked discussions about his focus. Babar Azam’s journey through this World Cup has become all the more intriguing, with attention drawn to both his stylish wedding preparations and the performance of the Pakistani cricket team.
