LAHORE- Australian born Shaniera Akram, the wife of former Pakistan skipper Wasim Akram, is fully supporting the Green Shirts in the ongoing ICC Cricket World Cup 2019.

Shaniera recently responded to a fan on Twitter who had asked her which of the two countries she was rooting in Wednesday’s match. “I think we all know that answer to this question, I’m in it for the long haul. Pakistan zindabad all the way!”

The former model also extended an apology to her father for not supporting Australia. “Sorry, Dad,” she joked.

Commenting on an earlier Twitter post, Shaniera said she did not know who she would support in the match against Pakistan and Australia, but she felt pride after seeing the Pakistan team perform and knew then and there who she was supporting.

Amazingly, Shaniera has always been openly supporting Pakistan and is very active on all social media platforms. She has won the hearts of many Pakistanis for her charity work in the country and frequently appears on television and magazine covers as well.


“If you had of told me seven years ago I would be living in Pakistan, married to the man of my dreams, I would have told you that you were crazy,” Shaniera said in an interview with an Australian publication, Herald Sun.
