    New Delhi (Sputnik): Dressed in wedding attire, eyes transfixed on the television screen, the picture of the newly-wedded couple shows how cricket-mania has gripped both India and Pakistan, as the sport is more than just cricket to its fandom.

    The picture of the Pakistani couple, shared by the official Twitter handle of the International Cricket Council (ICC), has created quite a stir among cricket fans who couldn't agree more with the pair, who called themselves  "die-hard cricket fans" in the picture submitted to the ICC. 

    Hasan Tasleem, who resides in North America, submitted their photograph to the ICC along with a note that read, “As a die-hard cricket fan, I want to submit a photo from my wedding this past weekend”. 

    “Even though it was my wedding night, I wasn’t going to miss the game,” he added.

    The world cricket’s governing body with 9.9 million followers was also amazed with the couple’s dedication to cricket and tweeted the picture, calling it #CoupleGoals.

    The picture received an overwhelming response from cricketing buffs, who recounted their own such experiences of cricket match dates coinciding with the birth of a child, while others shared pictures of the match being telecasted on screens during their weddings.

    On the other hand, many disagreed with Tasleem and joked that he shouldn’t have missed his wedding night for the game.
