Shami's wife Hasin Jahan had accused the cricketer of sexual offenses and domestic violence in March last year after exposing his alleged extra-marital affair in public. She had lodged an FIR with the Kolkata Police for the same. Jahan had also accused him of match-fixing but later on, BCCI had given the Bengal pacer a clean chit after completing an investigation.
After getting the clean chit, Shami made a strong comeback to the team, bowling superbly Down Under and then against Australia at home. Shami was given a Grade A central contract by BCCI and is among the strong contenders for India's squad for the 2019 World Cup.
