Shami has been doing exceedingly well on cricketing front as he has been a key wicket-taker for India in the ongoing ICC Cricket World Cup 2019. The right-arm pacer set the World Cup on fire after claiming a hat-trick against Afghanistan.
Fans expressed their surprise on Tuesday (July 9) as Team India didn't pick Shami for an all-important semi-final against New Zealand at Old Trafford.
Shami, however, has had a controversial person life when his wife Hasin Jahan accused the cricketer of physical and mental harassment.
Hasin Jahan accused him of having multiple extra-marital affairs. In a startling revelation, Hasin Jahan also alleged that the Bengal pacer and his family subjected her to mental and physical torture. Hasin Jahan didn't stop there, she even dragged the cricketer in court and filed police complaint against him and his family.
She also made several other startling accusations against the cricketer and the biggest among those was that he Shami was involved in match-fixing and for that he was in contact with bookies from London and UAE.
The BCCI's anti-corruption unit, however, investigated the matter and acquitted the cricketer of these allegations and cleared him to play for India once again.
