Mohammed Shami's wife Hasin Jahan has claimed that she had been trying to save her family and reason with the India cricketer before she decided to lodge a compaint of domestic violence and infidelity against him. Hasin Jahan's statement came after Shami told the media that he is ready to speak to his wife and solve the matter for the good of their daughter. Kolkata police have levelled charges under seven sections, including attempt to murder, against Shami following the complaint made by his wife.
Shami on Sunday appealed to his wife to "patch-up for the sake of their children and family," while talking to TV channels earlier in the day.
"I request her to get over the past and start life afresh. The past few days had been very bad for everyone. I had to even skip practice," the cricketer said.
Asked about Shami's appeal, Jahan said, "I had been trying to save my family. I had tried to reason out with him for a long time."
Following the controversy, Shami was excluded from the Board of Control for Cricket in India's (BCCI) 26-member annual contracts system.
