It has been a good few days since Mohammed Shami’s wife Hasin Jahan caught the media’s attention, accusing the Indian pacer of abuse, and cheating on her with not one but several women. Although the allegations were more personal in nature than professional, the BCCI chose to play it safe by omitting his name from the new pay scale announcements.
Shami’s wife created a hypothetical link between her allegations and the damage he can cause to the country’s reputation
“If Mohammed 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 the insistence of England-based Mohammed Bhai. I have proof,” Hasin Jahan said.
And here’s what Shami had to say during one of his press conferences:“She has lost her mental stability. She has to prove all the allegations made against me. If I have tortured her then she needs to prove it. “The entire episode is disturbing. I don’t know what she is up to. She needs to explain what has changed so much in these few days. She is suddenly leveling all these accusations on me. She is accusing of harassment. She is even accusing me of match-fixing. I think she has lost her mental balance or it might be her game plan to sabotage my career.”
And now MS Dhoni, former captain of the Indian cricket team has come out in support of Mohammed Shami. Dhoni believes that Shami is innocent, however he also urges the general public and media to stay out of the cricketer’s personal and private life.
“As far as I know, Shami is a great human being. He cannot cheat his wife and country. This is Shami’s personal matter and we should not make any comment on it”, said Dhoni to Punjab Kesari.
