Wedding ‘Match’ has been fixed for Controversial Pakistani cricketer Shoaib Akhtar. 39-year-old Shoaib is all set to marry 17-year-old Rubab in the third week of June. According to a report published by The Express Tribune newspaper, Shoaib’s family members met Mushtaq Khan, a businessman from Haripur while on Hajj last year and asked Khan’s wife for help in finding a suitable match for the retired cricketer. Both families reportedly met several times upon their return to Pakistan before finalising a match between Akhtar and Rubab.
Sources say bride-to-be Rubab has little interest in cricket and has three older brothers and a younger sister. She appeared in intermediate exams conducted by the Board of Intermediate and Secondary Education, Abbottabad, last month and waiting for the results. Going by reports, the Mehndi function is scheduled for June 19, the Rukhsati for June 20 at Haripur’s Bilawal Hall and the Valima for June 22 in Rawalpindi
