His name was not there on the list of contract players released by the BCCI on Wednesday. She also added that Shami wanted to marry a Bollywood celebrity just like the Indian skipper Virat Kohli. The CoA does not know the truth of the entire thing and wants to verify this. Anyone can say that it's purely a personal issue and has nothing to do with his professional life. "He is not playing for any club, he is playing for India", the source said.
The entire saga also puts Indian Premier League (IPL) franchise Delhi Daredevils in a fix over Shami's availability for the upcoming campaign.
"We're deliberating on this sensitive issue and once we reach a conclusion, we can comment on it", concluded the BCCI official. "I am disappointed that I have been kept out of BCCI central contract list".
A BCCI supervisory committee said the allegations, made by Shami's wife, Hasin Jahan, had put them in a hard position. Jahan also shared pictures of the fast bowler as "evidence" to support her allegations.
She has made public a series of messages that Shami allegedly sent to women during their four-year marriage and accused the cricketer, whom she married in 2014, of domestic violence.
"I went to Dharamsala to play (Deodhar Trophy) and I heard about all this". He's a big flirt. However, Shami, on Twitter, stated that the news was fake and that it was a "conspiracy" to defame him.
Earlier, reports surfaced in the media about Hasin Jahan accusing her husband of having extra-marital affairs. Jahan's advocate Zakir Hussain confirmed the legitimacy of the Facebook profile but declined further comment. "However, keeping in mind that the woman in question has met the police commissioner of Kolkata, it is only prudent on BCCI's part to wait for any official inquiry to take place".
