This global pandemic of Coronavirus and the situations that have arised due to it has created many tough issues not only for the downtrodden in our societies but even for the elite class. One such example is that of India’s Tennis star Sania Mirza whose husband cricketer Shoaib Malik is stranded in Pakistan due to lockdown.
Sania Mirza’s family is separated as Sania and her child Izhaan are in Hyderabad, India, and her husband, cricketer Shoaib Malik, in Sialkot, Pakistan.
Sania, who returned to the tennis court in January after two years, was travelling non-stop for tournaments, escaping the virus along the way, and returned home from the USA just before the lockdown was imposed. Malik was competing in the Pakistan Super League when similar measures were enforced there.
“So he got stuck in Pakistan, I got stuck here. That was very difficult to deal with because we have a small child. We don’t know when Izhaan will be able to see his father again. It’s as basic as that,” Sania Mirza said this during a Facebook Live conversation with Indian Express.
“We are both pretty positive and practical people. He has a mother who is over 65 and by herself, so he needs to be there. So in the end, it worked out best that he was there with her. We hope we are healthy and come out of this on the right side of it, ” She added.
