An earlier report in The Express Tribune quoted Akhtar's family members as saying that wedding dates with Rubab, a teenager from the district of Haripur, have been finalised for the third week of June.
The report was soon carried by several other publications.
Later on, however, The Express Tribune published a dismissal of their earlier story, clarifying that Akhtar had refuted all such "rumours".
According to reports, the cricketer has been out of reach and not responded to attempts to contact him.
