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.

No @ICC this is unpardonable. You need to schedule the matches well in advance.— KUGULET (@KUGULET) November 7, 2019
We can't have weddings on match days.
