Former captain of Bangladesh cricket team Sakib Al Hassan has ended his bachelor life by marrying an expatriate Bangladeshi software engineer Umme Ahmed Shihir. Denmohor (the marriage portion given by Muslim husband to wife at weeding) is fixed at twenty lakh and one taka. Betrothal was held at Ruposhi Bangla hotel in the capital.
Shihir was wearing a red sari and Sakib was wearing white panjabi. Limited number of guests was invited in the ceremony and media men were not invited.
Shihir’s family was migrated to United States when her father won DV lottery in 1993.
Sakib chose the date 12-12-12 to make the marriage more memorable. A great ceremony will be arranged on March next year when Shihir will formally go to Sakib’s house.
They came to contact with each other when Sakib went to England to play County cricket. After two years of dating they finally decided to marry.
