When personal matters starts making news over professional life for a sportsman, it is a clear indication that not all is right with the person in focus. Such has been the case with Indian speedster Mohammed Shami, who has seen himself caught in a controversy after wife Hasin Jahan alleged him of infidelity and abuse. The developments in the matter so far have seen Shami’s name being taken off from the BCCI’s list of central contracts while his IPL 2018 future at Delhi Daredevils also remains in jeopardy if he isn’t cleared off the charges. With the whole controversy far from reaching its conclusion, Shami took to Twitter to post an emotional picture of his daughter Aira.
While Shami has retaliated to the charges claiming his wife has lost her mental balance, Jahan has hit back saying she has always tried to save her marriage and the cricketer would have run away had she not found his phone which had all those controversial WhatsApp and Facebook chats in it. The recent developments on the matter reveal that an out of court settlement is possible, there isn’s clarity over which way the case is progressing.
Shami’s cricketing career has come to a halt as he is being investigated under several sections of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) after his wife filed a complaint against him for adultery and a number of other offences. Taking to Twitter on Monday, Shami tweeted a picture of his daughter saying, “Chocolate lover ….miss u bebo.”
