Indian pacer Mohammad Shami who has been alleged of domestic violence and cheating his wife has said in an interview on Thursday that all allegations against him are baseless and false.
Because of the allegations, Shami has been removed from the central contracts list by BCCI which was announced on Wednesday.
Shami told reporters: “All these accusations made against me are baseless. They have no meaning. She said that this has been happening since five years, the fact is that we have been married just for four years. And why has the accusation come only now and not during the last five years. Why did it take time? So this I think is a planned ploy.”
He added: “Even after my wife was trolled so much in the past I stood by her. And I would like to stand by her today as well.”
BCCI has confirmed that Shami will not be included in the central contracts list until he doesn’t get clear from all the accusations. It still remains unclear if he can take part in the upcoming Indian Premier League (IPL).
