Now that their son has realised the dream of winning the World Cup, the parents of Zaheer Khan want the Indian pace spearhead to tie the nuptial knot.

"We wanted him to marry after the 2007 World Cup but he insisted on the next one. We did not force him since it was question of his career. But now that the coveted Cup has been conquered and he has come out as a top performer with the ball, his early marriage is the only dream that tops our agenda," Zaheer's father Bakhtiar Khan told reporters here.

Zaheer had an amazing tournament with 21 wickets.

He was joint highest wicket taker in the tournament along with Pakistan's Shahid Afridi.

"He has fulfilled his dream on the cricket field now our dream is to get him into wedlock without further delay as this is the proper age," the senior Khan said.
