The couple shared why they avoid talking about cricket. 

“It was my first Test tour to South Africa in 2013 and we just got hitched,” Sarfaraz recalled. 


“As you know, South African bouncy conditions are always tricky for us, so I failed to score runs there.

“I was already disturbed with my performance and then Khushbakht asked me to focus on my performance. It irritated me a bit and I immediately told her to mind her own business,” he disclosed. 

“Mera coach banne ki zaroorat nahi hai, mere pas already coaches hain [Don’t try to be my coach, I already have my coaches],” Sarfaraz was quoted saying to his wife on phone.

Intervening into the conversation, Khushbakht said; “Thereafter, we didn’t talk about cricket ever.”

This statement of Sarfaraz has gained polarising response from netizens.

Sarfaraz and Khushbakht tied the knot in 2015. The couple have two children named, Abdullah and Ayesha. 

Sarfaraz also mentioned that he gets very angry when any of his equipment gets misplaced.


Recently he appreciated actress Hania Aamir for her performance in blockbuster drama serial, Ishqiya costarring Feroze Khan.
