Shoaib Malik scored 102 runs in the three-match series with the highest of 51, which came in the final T20I. He was adjudged Man of the Series for his efforts and he was also presented a motorcycle as part of the prize.

Later, Malik was congratulated by Sania Mirza on the achievement immediately, who also asked her husband if it was possible to go on a bike ride.

On his part, Malik was quick to tell his wife to get ready and he was soon going to take her for a ride on the new bike.

However, Sania’s idea of going for a bike ride with her husband immediately after the match was spoiled when she spotted Pakistani leg-spinner Shadab Khan riding pillion.

Sania was reportedly present at the Gaddafi Stadium in Lahore to watch the match.

Realising that he may have played a spoilsport between Sania and Malik as the couple seemed to be making their plans post-match, Shadab was quick to apologise, joining the banter.

Pakistan were unbeaten in the ODI series as well and thanks to their victory on Sunday, they achieved a complete whitewash against Sri Lanka in the limited overs encounters.
