Mohammed Shami came out clean after the BCCI gave him a clean chit on the allegations levied by his wife Hasin Jahan. BCCI’s ACU led by Neeraj Kumar investigated on allegations of having accepted money from a certain Pakistani girl named Alishba and UK based Mohammed bhai.

“I was under tremendous pressure but now I feel relieved after BCCI cleared me of wrong-doing. I was hurt that my loyalty and commitment towards my nation was questioned. But I had full faith in BCCI’s investigation process. I am looking forward towards getting back on the field,” Shami told PTI.

I had to go through a lot in the past 10-15 days. The charge of match fixing specifically brought me under tremendous pressure. I will channelize my anger in a positive way on the cricket field. This decision has given me courage and motivation to perform on the field. I will make my bowling do all the talking now in the coming days. This is a big win for me and I am hopeful that in the coming days I will also be cleared of the remaining charges,” Shami later told ABP News.

Mohammed Shami was also given his B-Grade BCCI annual contract, which was withheld pending investigations. He will also play for Delhi Daredevils team in the upcoming IPL 2018.

I knew from within that I had done nothing wrong but was still scared that I might get framed. I can’t thank BCCI enough,” he said.
