According to reports in Pakistan media, Akhtar will be visiting 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.
Reports say Akhtar`s family met Mushtaq Khan, a businessman from Haripur, while on Haj last year and discussions of a marriage started soon after.
Akhtar, who was recently seen on TV as an expert during the Indian Premier League 2014, has made headlines several times during his 15-year-old international career, both with his cricketing exploits and off-field endeavours.
