BCCI Can’t Cancel Mohammed Shami Contract, Says Former Legal Advisor

Written by Vipin Darwade

Former Principal Legal Advisor of BCCI, Usha Nath Bandyopadhyay, on Monday said it would be “illegal and wrong” if the Indian cricket board has cancelled pacer Mohammed Shami’s annual contract on the basis of a “complaint by his wife”.

Shami, engaged in a bitter feud with his wife Hasin Jahan, found himself out of the Board of Control for Cricket in India’s (BCCI) 26-member annual contracts system on Wednesday.

Shami faces charges of attempting to murder his wife by poisoning her, with a First Information Report filed at the Jadavpur police station the implicating the cricketer and four others under various sections of the Indian Penal Code.
