Shami's woes spilled over by the evening with the BCCI leaving him out of its revised annual contracts list.

Shami has rubbished the claims of Jahan by saying on Twitter that whatever is being said about his personal life was false and an attempt to defame him as a part of conspiracy. Can not say anything about the case till the time I get to know everything. "So I think the direction and guidance will have to come from the BCCI", Delhi Daredevils CEO Hemant Dua told The Indian Express.

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. If I have tortured her then she needs to prove it.

With the news coming out of the blue, Shami claimed that there have been no problems between him and his wife, with the couple having toured South Africa together and even celebrated the festival of Holi before the pacer took off to fulfill his domestic cricket duties. "I am ready to apologise if this case goes in favour of my wife", Shami added. The complaint has been filed in the Lalbazar police station. She said that the BCCI was aware of it but didn't take it seriously enough in the past. "I tried to convince myself for the sake of my family and daughter but he kept on harassing me and when I found those obscene chats with multiple women, all hell broke".

Shami also said that he plans to take appropriate legal action against Jahan. "I confronted him but he threatened me and dared me to do whatever I wanted". Married to Shami since 2014, Hasin Jahan claimed that the bowler is having several extra-marital affairs simultaneously. "But I feel she is planning something evil", he said.
