Shami Rubbishes Domestic Abuse Allegations, Calls Them Baseless
Mohammed Shami’s wife Hasin Jahan has accused the fast bowler of domestic violence and adultery in social media posts but the bowler has rebutted the claims, calling them "baseless".
Shami expressed that he thought everything was fine between him and his wife until he was accused of domestic violence.
The speedster said his wife didn’t pick up his call when he tried to call her, but he spoke to his father-in-law.
Shami has played 30 Tests for India, claiming 110 wickets so far. The injury-prone bowler has appeared in 50 ODIs and seven Twenty20 Internationals, picking up 91 and eight wickets respectively.
The cricketer from Uttar Pradesh, who plays for Bengal, was recently in the spotlight when he was subjected to abuse on social media for posting pictures with his wife. Trolls had called Jahan's outfits in the photos inappropriate.
