Wasim Akram (The Pakistani paceman) is engaged to marry Melbourne woman Shaniera Thompson. The famed left-arm bowler, 47, proposed on bended knee in their lounge room to Shaniera Thompson, 30.
“It was the romantic moment of my life because it was so genuine,” she said.
A former public relations consultant from Brighton, Shaniera Thompson has converted to Islam, and will call Pakistan home. She said Akram was nervous about proposing in the traditional way.
“He was really sweet about it.
He asked me what my dream proposal would be and I said I’m not the type of woman that likes a big scene. I would want it to be at home or somewhere private.
“Then I came into the lounge room and he was on his knee and asked me if I’d marry him.”
But the joyful mood was soon broken by a worried look on Shaniera Thompson’s face.
