Good Sports: Newly Weds Share Passion for Cricket Nobel laureate Malala Yousafzai delighted millions on social media with her recent news: “Today marks a precious day in my life. Asser and I tied the knot to be partners for life. We celebrated a small nikkah ceremony at home in Birmingham with our families.”

Her husband, Asser Malik, is Pakistan Cricket Board’s general manager (high performance). He is a former operational manager for the Multan Sultans, a professional cricket franchise in Pakistan, as well as co-founder of an amateur cricket league, Last Man Stands, in Pakistan.

Yousafzai, 24, is a big cricket fan who grew up playing the sport with her friends and brothers. She and Malik have been courting for two years.

“In Malala, I found the most supportive friend, a beautiful and kind partner,” Malik wrote on social media. “I’m so excited to spend the rest of our life together.”
