Indian cricketer Mohammed Shami has rubbished claims of match-fixing made by his wife Hasin Jahan and said that he wants a thorough investigation into the matter.
Shami said that he had never indulged in match-fixing and claimed that he had good support from Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI).Shami’s wife had alleged that he had taken money from a Pakistani woman named Alishba on the insistence of an England-based businessman, Mohammad Bhai.
The Committee of Administrators of the BCCI on Wednesday has asked the anti-corruption wing of the board to launch an investigation into an alleged shifty cash transaction.
Earlier, Hasin Jahan on her ‘Facebook’ page had 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.
“Accepting money from a Pakistani and all this about going to Dubai has been wrongly clubbed together. I have never done anything wrong and neither will I ever do it in the future. This was a conspiracy to tarnish my character and I request that this to be thoroughly investigated.”
Speaking about his daughter, Shami said he wants the best for her and will do anything possible to make her future better.”My daughter has her entire life in front of her, I need to secure her future so I will do my best to make that happen.”
Shami’s IPL team — the Delhi Daredevils — are also awaiting BCCI’s legal opinion about whether they should allow the Bengal speedster to join their camp. The Indian pacer said that he is keen to get the matter sorted out quickly and resume his cricketing duties.
