Cricket in itself is considered a religion and there is no denying to the fact. And across Asian countries like India and Pakistan, it has the potential to be chosen over anything on the plate.
Something same happened on Tuesday when a newly married couple from Pakistan choose a cricket match between Pakistan and Australia over their wedding night.
In a picture that has been doing the rounds on the web, the couple can be seen focusing on the cricket match while being seated for what seems like a photo session.
The groom also shared a letter with the picture that read: “As a die-hard cricket fan, I want to submit a photo from my wedding this past weekend. As per tradition, after the completion of wedding, the bride is bought home for a little traditional ceremony amongst the close family. As we came home (around midnight in Detroit, Michigan, USA) the Pakistan vs Australia T20 game was getting underway. Over the years residing in North America I’ve stayed up at all sorts of odd hours in night to catch team Pakistan play. Even though it was my wedding night, I wasn’t going to miss this game (sic).”
The picture was obviously lauded by netizens who wished the couple a happy marriage besides sharing their experience with a cricket match coinciding with a special day in their life.
