Indian pacer Mohammed Shami’s troubles are mounting by the day. It was reported by TOI on Wednesday (March 14) that the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) had asked its Anti-Corruption Unit (ACU) to “look into the Shami issue” after his wife Hasin Jahan had levelled match fixing allegations against him. On Wednesday morning, the Supreme Court-run Committee of Administrators (CoA) head Vinod Rai wrote an e-mail (a copy is with TOI) to ACU head Neeraj Kumar, asking him to investigate these charges and submit a report within a week. The mail has also been marked to all the office-bearers of the BCCI and CEO, Rahul Johri.
“This has reference to the various media reports pertaining to allegations against Shami. The CoA has listened to the audio recording of a telephonic conversation which it is claimed is between Shami and his wife. The said audio recording is available in public domain. The CoA is concerned only with such portion of the said audio recording in which the person who it is claimed is Shami is heard saying another person by the name of “Mohammed Bhai” had sent money to Shami through a Pakistani lady by the name of “Alisba,” Rai wrote.
