Newly-wedded couple Shoaib Malik and Sania Mirza today arrived in this Pakistani port city to a rousing reception.

The Pakistani cricketer and Indian tennis star, who got married at a simple ceremony in Hyderabad in India last week, arrived at the Jinnah International Airport from Mumbai by a PIA flight. This is their first visit to Pakistan after they got married.

The couple was given a warm welcome at the international lounge where the airport administration hosted a luncheon in their honour, Geo News reported.

Shoaib and Sania will fly to Lahore later today, sources said. The couple are in Pakistan to attend their reception.

Huge crowd was seen at the airport to greet the newly-wedded couple, but they were not allowed to enter the longue by police.

Sources in Islamabad said Sania has sought a meeting with Indian High Commissioner Sharat Sabharwal and is likely to call on him tomorrow.
