  • Tabraiz Shamsi shares a humorous episode of his wife Khadija Shariff misspelling names of England cricketers.

  • In March, the adorable couple got blessed with a baby boy.

Just like the rest of cricketers in South Africa, Tabraiz Shamsi is also currently spending time with his family as no cricketing action is about to take place in the rainbow nation in the coming months.


Meanwhile, Shamsi is enjoying the England versus Pakistan Test series as he is watching it with his wife Khadija Shariff and having great fun. Regarding the same, Shamsi shared his experience on social media platform Twitter.

Shamsi revealed how his better-half enquired about some English players but misspelt their names. Instead of Ben Stokes, Chris Woakes and Jofra Archer, Shamsi’s wife called them as Ben Woakes, Chris Pollock and Joffa Arche.


“Watching cricket with my wife is the most entertaining thing ever. She asks me about players like Ben Woakes, Chris Pollock and Joffa Archer to name a few,” Shamsi wrote while narrating the hilarious incident.

Shamsi was a part of the South Africa team which toured to India for the three-match One Day International (ODI) series in the month of March, but the bilateral series was suspended due to the coronavirus pandemic.


In the same month, Shamsi became the proud father of a baby boy. Shamsi had announced this news on his Twitter handle as well.

“…and then there were 3. I cannot thank @markb46, @GraemeSmith49 and the rest of the Proteas team and management enough for being so amazing and supportive throughout the process leading up to the birth of our bundle of joy #BabyShamsi,” Shamsi had tweeted.


The 30-year-old spinner has so far played 2 Tests, 22 ODIs and 22 T20 Internationals for South Africa, in which he has picked up 6, 26 and 17 wickets, respectively. When it comes to performing with the willow, then the Johannesburg-born cricketer has scored 278 runs in the longest format of the game, 993 in ODIs and 597 in the shortest format.

Shamsi has also appeared in 4 Indian Premier League (IPL) games where he has managed to score 147 runs and bag three wickets.
