Watch: Wasim Akram meets wife, daughter after being ’10 months apart’


Melbourne: Former Pakistan captain Wasim Akram reunited with his wife Shaniera Akram and daughter Aiyla after being almost 10 months apart.

The legendary pacer also shared the beautiful moment when he finally met his daughter, sharing a short clip of their reunion on his official Twitter account.

“Finally seeing my daughter after 10 months apart,” Wasim Akram captioned the footage on the microblogging site.

Akram also expressed his gratitude to his wife Shaniera, an Australian social worker, for taking such good care of their “little princess”.

“Thank you, Shaniera, for raising such a beautiful little princess while we have been apart,” Akram further wrote and the post was an instant hit on Twitter.

Akram was away from his family for the last 10 months due to COVID-19 travel restrictions. While he was in Pakistan, his wife and daughter were in Australia.

The 55-year-old, last month, travelled to Australia to reunite with his family and after spending his mandatory 14-day quarantine, he was allowed to meet them.
