Indian cricketer Yusuf Pathan married fiancee Afreen at a family function in Mumbai on Wednesday.
It is an arranged marriage and the match was decided after both families gave their approval. His younger brother Irfan Pathan, also a cricketer, was present at the function.
The 30-year-old big-hitting batsman got engaged in a private ceremony last year at his farmhouse in Nadiad which is 60 kms away from Vadodara.
Afreen was born and brought up in Mumbai but practises physiotherapy in Vadodara. Pathan, who has been out of the Indian team for some time now, has scored 810 runs in 57 ODIs and 236 runs in 22 T20s.
Yusuf Pathan was part of the 2011 ICC World Cup winning squad and member of 2007 ICC T20 World Cup winning side in South Africa. He was also a part of the IPL winning side in the inaugural edition in 2008 for Rajasthan Royals and played a crucial role both with the bat and ball.
Yusuf Pathan will play for defending champions Kolkata Knight Riders in IPL 2013.
