Couple watches Australia vs Pakistan T20I on wedding night in USA, gets surprise response from Aaron Finch

Posted On / /

Cricket is quite a popular sport in Asia. India and Pakistan are the Asian powerhouses, and the craze for the game is second to none in these countries.

A recent tweet by the ICC pretty much brought out how popular the sport is. It referred to a couple, who watched the second T20I between Australia and Pakistan just after getting married in the USA.

Hasan Tasleem sent a picture to the apex cricketing body. One can see that the couple is watching the game on a TV just behind them even as they engaged in a welcoming ceremony.

“Here’s a message we got from a fan in the US #CoupleGoals You know it’s love when,” ICC captioned the picture.

“As a die-hard cricket fan, I want to submit a photo of 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,” the fan wrote in his letter to the ICC.

And guess who responded. None other than the Aussie skipper Aaron Finch himself. “Haha glad I played such a special part in your day!! Take note @AmyFinch,” he tweeted.

Pakistan is currently on tour to Australia, where they trail the three-match T20I series 0-1, with a match to spare.

Steve Smith starred with an unbeaten 80 off 51 deliveries as the hosts beat the visitors by seven wickets in Canberra on Tuesday. The first game in Sydney was abandoned due to rain.

After the third and final T20I in Perth on Friday, the two teams with play two Tests in Brisbane and Adelaide later this month.
