Karachi: Former Pakistan captain Rashid Latif has backed Shoaib Malik in his ongoing marriage row with Ayesha Siddiqui, saying the girl being shown on TV channels is not the one his teammate fell in love with during internet and telephone chats.
Rashid said he had seen the photographs of the girl with whom Shoaib used to chat with on the internet.
“Shoaib Malik used to borrow my laptop for chatting with a girl and he did show me a few pictures of her. I can assure you that the girl I saw in pictures is not the one on TV these days,” Rashid told a private news channel.
Rashid urged fellow cricketers to come forward and support Shoaib, who is set to marry Indian tennis star Sania Mirza next week in Hyderabad, and he offered his services in this regard.
