Ace Indian cricket all-rounder Irfan Pathan has been in relationship with Shivangi Dev, daughter of an Indian diplomat in Australia. Pathan, who has known Shivangi for the past six years, has finally proposed to her to marry him and she agreed.
Initially, there was some resistance from the families of both Irfan and Shivangi. But, the strong bond between the young lovers made their respective parents to relent and their marriage will be solemnized soon at Vadodara in a traditional manner.
Irfan had first met Shivangi during a practice match in Canberra in 2003 and their romance blossomed ever since. She visited Irfan’s home twice and met his family members. Irfan also met her parents while on tour to Australia.
Shivangi works as a chartered accountant in Australia and also teaches dance to children.
