Mohammad Shami’s personal life is affecting his professional life, as the BCCI has decided to not hand the Indian seamer a contract after details about his extra-marital affairs and physical abuse towards wife surfaced today morning.
Shami’s wife, Hasin Jahan informed ABP news about Shami’s infidelity and the way his family has been ill-treating all this while.
Shami thus has been excluded from a BCCI contract on disciplinary grounds as per a top BCCI official.
“Shami has been dropped from the player contracts system because his wife filed a complaint against him,” the BCCI source said.
The source confirmed that Shami would be included in the contract only if proved innocent.
Shami has been dropped from contract due to disciplinary reason and will be included in the contract list if (his) innocence is proved,” sources said.
Shami’s wife posted released screenshots of her husband’s conversations with multiple women in different cities, in India and abroad.
Shami was in ‘Category B’ of the players last time round, and would have been expected a ‘Category A’ contract this time round, had this news not surfaced today morning.
BCCI have introduced a ‘Category A+’ this time, with players who feature in the playing XI of all three formats included in the category, followed by ‘Category A’ that has all the Test specialists along with MS Dhoni and Ajinkya Rahane.
‘Category B’ comprises of limited overs specialists who almost certainly feature in at least one of the limited overs formats.
‘Category C’ have players who are on the cusp of cementing their places in the Indian starting XI and regularly feature in the Indian limited overs squads.
BCCI have clearly stated that Shami’s personal actions have resulted in him not getting a contract, and here a very pertinent issue arises.
