Indian pacer Mohammed Shami is currently into the deep trouble. While his wife Hasin Jahan started with the personal allegations against her husband, now it is going under the scrutiny of BCCI’s Anti-Corruption Unit. While Hasin Jahan recently alleged Shami for match-fixing, Shami totally denied and quoted “Hang me if found guilty in the BCCI investigation.”
After claiming extra-marital affairs and domestic violence against Mohammed Shami, his wife Hasin Jahan recently told ABP, “If Shami can cheat me then he can cheat the country as well. He accepted money from a Pakistani girl named Alisbah in Dubai. He agreed to accept it after insistence of England-based Mohammed Bhai. I have evidence which proves that he accepted money from Mohammed Bhai. Shami has to clarify why accepted that money.”
After those allegations, BCCI has put on hold Mohammed Shami’s annual central contract at the present situation. Later, the chief of SC appointed CoA (Vinod Rai) wrote to the BCCI’s Anti-Corruption Unit head (Neeraj Kumar) to investigate the match-fixing charges on Shami.
Shami recently told India News that the BCCI cancelled his annual contract in a rush. Talking on that, he said, “The Indian cricket board cancelled my annual contract in a rush. I have played the game in free and fair manner. Hang me if found guilty in the BCCI investigation.”
Shami is always claiming that he is not guilty. Earlier, he claimed that he always played for the Indian cricket team with his heart. He told ABP News, “I have also played with my heart, given more than 100% every time I walked on to the field. I have huge respect for security personnel guarding our border. I always think about their hardship. I would prefer to die rather before even thinking about something even remotely close to match-fixing.”
However, Shami is getting huge support from the cricket families. Former Indian World Cup and World T20 winning skipper MS Dhoni told Jansatta.com, “As much as I know, Shami is a great human being and he can’t cheat his wife and country. It is Shami’s personal life, and we should not comment on it.”
Another former Indian World Cup winning skipper Kapil Dev refused to believe the match-fixing allegation on Shami. The 1983 WC winning captain told Wah Cricket, “I refuse to believe the allegations that have been levelled by Shami’s wife. If she knew about match-fixing then why didn’t she report about it earlier? When the relationship was fine, why was she silent then? There is an investigation team. Let them do their work. If Shami has done something like this then it is unacceptable and disgraceful.”
Badruddin Siddiqui, Shami’s childhood coach, also said that Hasin Jahan’s accusations were totally false. He told ABP News, “Shami is a very shy person, used to always stay away from crowds. I know him and his family very well. His wife’s accusation totally false. The couple should have sorted out the matter among themselves. Last time I spoke to him was during South Africa tour.”
