Indian pacer Mohammed Shami ,who was embroiled in a messy marital-discord case over the last one month – has been given the ‘clean chit’ by the Indian cricket board’s Anti-Corruption Unit (ACU) . He is also awarded Grade B annual retainership contract.
The BCCI on Thursday said in an official statement, “The Honourable Supreme Court appointed Committee of Administrators (CoA) had requested Neeraj Kumar, former police commissioner of Delhi and head of the BCCI Anti-Corruption Unit, to investigate . The allegations against Mohd Shami in so far as they pertain to the provisions of the BCCI anti-corruption code . Kumar has submitted his important report . The COA will not take any further actions against Mohammed Shami
The development implies the BCCI does not suspect Shami’s involvement in match-fixing as alleged by the pacer’s wife.
After the above announcement Delhi Daredevils CEO Hemant Dua welcomed the seamer back into the Indian Premier League (IPL) franchise. “Happy to inform that @MdShami11 has beengiven clean chit by #ACU of @BCCI and can play with @DelhiDaredevils,” Dua tweeted.
Shami’s inclusion in BCCI’s central contract comes as a relief for Team India as they gear up for a flurry of overseas . This will include the challenges over the course of next 15 months that include tours to England and Australia and the 2019 ICC World Cup.
Sources in the BCCI said: “As far as his personal life and the discord (with wife Hasin Jahan) is concerned . It does not involve the board. The audio tape had immediately sent to the right authorities to investigate . After that, the ACU has given him the go-ahead.”
