Once's bad dream for every opposing team, the former Pakistan fast bowler Shoaib Akhtar has denied that he is getting married to a 17 year-old girl from Abbottabad.
Responding to the reports in Pakistan media, Akhtar denied the news with anger that he was marrying a teenager in the third week of June.
However, On Saturday Pakistan media reported Akhtar's upcoming marriage with 17 year-old Rubab.
Akhtar has made headlines several times during his 15-year-old international career both with his cricket life and off-field news.
Akhtar is supposed to visit his hometown Rawalpindi on June 12 to finalise details of his wedding with Rubab, who has three elder brothers and a younger sister. Rubab appeared in intermediate examination in Abbottabad only last month, as per the reports of Pakistan media.
Reports said Akhtar's family met Mushtaq Khan, a businessman from Haripur, while on Haj last year and discussions of a marriage started soon after. Rubab is not a cricket fan, but Akhtar is not only about cricket.
During the 2011 World Cup, Akhtar said in an interview that he wanted to build a hospital for the poor in Rawalpindi, just like Imran Khan did in Lahore for cancer patients. Imran's mother died from cancer.
