Right after his wife accused him of having multiple extra marital affairs as well as scandalous lifestyle , Md Shami has been discarded from the list of 26 contracted players released by the BCCI on Wednesday despite his starring role in India’s only Test win in the recent tour of South Africa.
According one of the BCCI official, Mohammed Shami’s name, for the time being, has been withheld from the central contracts that were announced today. “The BCCI has taken cognisance of all the reports emerging about Mohammed Shami’s personal life. It is purely a personal matter and the BCCI has nothing to do with it. However, keeping in mind that the woman in question has met the police commissioner of Kolkata, it is only prudent on BCCI’s part to wait for any official inquiry to take place,” the official said.
Hasin Jahan, wife of Shami, has accused her husband of assault and extramarital affairs. Jahan had put out screenshots of the alleged conversations that Shami had with women on her Facebook page. She has also shared some photos of the bowler as “evidence” to support her allegations.
