Kolkata: Mohammed Shami is one of the finest pace bowlers in the current India side. His ability to bowl at a good pace, generate swing and bowl the toe-crushing yorkers have time and again troubled the batsmen.
The pacer, who troubled batsmen with his short deliveries, has failed to deal with bouncer directed by his wife Hasin Jahan, who has accused him of having extra-marital affairs, torture, and even match-fixing.
On Friday, during a press conference, Hasin Jahan shared the recordings of an alleged phone call with the cricketer. She played the recording, of what she claimed was a telephonic conversation between her and Shami.
Here are excerpts of the alleged phone conversation:
"Shami please don't lie. When will you tell the truth? You don't care about me, our daughter, our families, you don't about anyone. You might care about that Pakistani girl so I urge you to tell the truth in Alishba's name. Are these chats yours?"
"No" (male voice)
"When you said you didn't have a Dubai visa and you can't leave the hotel room then how did you get one?. Why did you lie to me? It's clear you are lying to me," asked Hasin
"I had a visa," (male voice).
"You texted Alishba giving her the room details in the same hotel in Dubai. Was this also done by Mohammed bhai? When Alishba was waiting at belt no. 7 (at the airport) she knew your landing and take off time. Was this all being done by Mohammed bhai?," asked Hasin.
"Mohammed bhai had sent me money through Alishba so I had to take the money from her" (male voice)
"You have only indulged in dirty chatting with her, Shami. You never mentioned receiving money..."
"But when I asked you about Alishba last night you said, "where did Alishba come from?"
"First you did all the drama with Alisha and then you said where did Alishba come from? You had sex with Alishba!"
"Listen don't talk about sex" (male voice)
Shami on Thursday dismissed all the allegation against him and lashed out at his wife saying that she has "lost her mental balance".
"She has lost her mental stability. She has to prove all the allegations made against me. If I have tortured her then she needs to prove it." said Shami addressing a press conference.
"As far as allegation of compromising my performance while playing for the country is concerned, I would rather die than do something like this," he added
Hasin Jahan responded to Shami’s comment by registering an FIR on Friday against Shami and his four other family members in Kolkata's Jadavpur police station under several Indian Penal Code (IPC) sections, including section 498A, which amounts to cruelty to a woman by her husband or his relatives.
The other charges recorded against Shami are under Section 307 - attempt to murder, Section 323 - punishment for voluntarily causing hurt, Section 376 - rape, Section 506 - criminal intimidation, Section 328 and Section 34.
Jahan has been a model and a cheerleader for Kolkata Knight Riders in Indian Premier League (IPL) in the past.
