Indian cricket fans were in a rude shock a couple of days back, when BCCI announced the latest player contracts for the upcoming season. While there were some notable absentees, it was Mohammed Shami’s absence that raised quite a few eyebrows.

“If Mohammed Shami can cheat me then he can cheat the country as well. He accepted money from a Pakistani girl named Alisbah in Dubai. He agreed to accept it after the insistence of England-based Mohammed Bhai. I have proof,” she said.
This is what Shami had to say in response,
“She has lost her mental stability. She has to prove all the allegations made against me. If I have tortured her then she needs to prove it.” said Shami addressing a press conference.
“The entire episode is disturbing. I don’t know what she is up to. She needs to explain what has changed so much in these few days. She is suddenly leveling all these accusations on me. She is accusing of harassment. She is even accusing me of match-fixing. I think she has lost her mental balance or it might be her game plan to sabotage my career.”
Now, MS Dhoni has also given his say on the matter,
“As far as I know, Shami is a great human being. He cannot cheat his wife and country. This is Shami’s personal matter and we should not make any comment on it,” said Dhoni while speaking to Punjab Kesari.
