Malik married over the phone?

It seems that an Indian woman's family are claiming that Shoaib Malik, the Pakistan captain, deserted her after exchanging vows over the phone. Given international cricket schedules, perhaps this is the future for professional cricketers - relationships carried out over the phone and the internet!

Apparently, "Some school of thought of the Islamic Shariah laws recognise the exchange of marriage vows over the telephone", which is interesting - I wonder who witnesses it and who carries out the marriage? If you know, comment below.

Unsurprisingly, Malik says he just wants to concentrate on his career....
