Hyderabad: For former Pakistan cricket captain Shoaib Malik, it was a disappointment both on-and-off the ground in the hometown of his wife and tennis ace Sania Mirza.
Playing his first match here since their marriage four years ago, Malik failed with both bat and ball. The all-rounder scored just eight runs for Hobart Hurricanes after finishing with bowling figures of 2-0-15-0 against Cape Cobras in a Champions League Twenty20 match.

The Pakistani's poor run continued while Sania bagged yet another title. The Hyderabadi and her partner Cara Black Saturday won the women's doubles title at the WTA Toray Pacific Open in Tokyo.
