Cricketers turn heads on catwalk

April 17, 2012 - Karachi

Karachi: Former Pakistan cricket captain Younis Khan and paceman Umar Gul sashayed down the ramp at a bridal fashion show this weekend.

Wearing a blackish grey shirwani - a long suit worn by grooms in Pakistan-Younis smiled all down the runway in his first-ever appearance in a fashion show in Karachi on Saturday, while Gul wore an off-white shirwani, reported.

Fashion show regular Hina Sheikh gave the players a reverberating thumbs up

"It was delightful to watch cricketers on the ramp," said Sheikh.

"Younis was more confident and although Gul was a bit reserved and shaky at the start, he finished the job well.

"Both looked stunning."

Gul asserted that although he enjoyed the experience, he has no intention of swapping the wicket for the catwalk.

"A friend had invited me to walk on the ramp and although I enjoyed it but I have no plans to join modelling in future because my focus is only on cricket," he said.

All rounder Shahid Afridi was also invited for the event but was unable to attend.
