The Bengal pacer was supposed to be included in the list of players, but a call from Committee of Administrators (CoA) asked the national cricket body to put Shami's contract on standby, even as Virat Kohli and Ravi Shastri were made aware of the situation.
Former Indian skipper MS Dhoni took to Facebook to say something about the controversies that Shami is facing from his wife Hasin Jahan. "She is Shabnaz staying samba, She is also Mohammed shami s girlfriend", read the post. She also shared a series of photos, including screenshots of the fast bowler's alleged chats with many women.
"I have met the officer and told him everything about how I have been tortured by Shami".
"Some might accuse BCCI that a player has been rewarded despite such serious allegations, including an attempt to murder, are being levelled against him by his wife", he added.
Notably, the post, which was uploaded from an unverified account, was titled as "Shami's enjoyment" and had several pictures of the pacer's text messages to multiple women.More news: Titans inform DeMarco Murray that he'll be released
Media reports suggested that Jahan is mulling legal action against Shami and his family members. Can not say anything about the case till the time I get to know everything.
Shami got married to Jahan in 2014 and has a daughter named Aaira Shami. We were living together and even celebrated Holi together and we also shopped together even after the South Africa tour.
The 27-year-old pace bowler, who is in Dharamshala playing the Deodhar Trophy, denied the allegations. Even after my wife was trolled so much in the past I stood by her. "They have no meaning", Shami told ANI.
Shami vented his frustration at his wife's accusations and sought to clear his record.
"I contacted my father-in-law, he spoke to me very nicely and I think the things will sort out soon", he said.
