Indian pacer Mohammed Shami has come out and spoken for the first after the Supreme Court-appointed Committee of Administrators (CoA) asked BCCI to probe the match-fixing allegations leveled against him by his wife.
The probe will be carried out by BCCI’s Anti-Corruption chief Neeraj Kumar. While Shami has rebuked all the allegations against him, he has stood by his opinion reiterating that he can never deceive the country. Shami also said that if found guilty for the allegations against him, he is ready to be hanged to death. Mohammed broke into tears as he opened up about his allegations to a Hindi news channel.
The India pacer’s contract has been put on hold when BCCI announced the new contracts list a week ago. Shami denied all the match-fixing allegations and said that stepping into the field for India is a proud feeling and that he gets goosebumps every time he plays.
The allegations against Mohammed Shami had surfaced after his wife Hasin Jahan had released a recording of a conversation he'd had. Jahan had alleged that Shami "took money from a Pakistani woman named Alishba on the insistence of Mohammad Bhai".
Last week, Jahan on her Facebook page alleged that Shami was cheating on her and that she was a victim of domestic violence. Shami, though has denied all the allegations, saying it was a conspiracy to defame him and ruin his career.
