Kolkata: The ugly spat between Team India pacer Mohammed Shami and his wife Hasin Jahan seems to be getting uglier day by day. The out-of-contract Indian cricketer has admitted that his hopes of reuniting with wife Hasin Jahan are over.
"All hopes of re-uniting with my wife are over. As far as it is about my family and my household, for my wife and my daughter, I have done everything to save it. If say I had even only one per cent chance to save it, I tried. But now Hasin herself has said in her interview that she wants to settle this in court. I don’t think any hope is left. I have made all family members talk (to her). Such things prove she does not even have that one per cent. I kept saying it all along, even in my interviews that I was trying hard. I felt if I could do anything, or even bow my head down which could help me save my house, I wouldn’t take a step back. But that hope is over now," Shami was quoted saying to India Today.
It’s been a week since the whole saga has been in news. Team India's pace spearheads career and reputation have taken a bad hit after his wife made some sensational allegations, claiming that he had extra-marital affairs and was involved in domestic violence.
"My request to the BCCI, or the anti-corruption unit, or the local police or any committee would be to take is seriously, there are many lives at stake here. I want it to be properly investigated," Shami added.

"I have evidence to prove my innocence," Shami told India Today.
He added "We were playing a Test from December 2 to 6. On December 6th, we attended Bhuvi's [Bhuvneshwar Kumar] reception at the Taj [hotel] in Delhi. We checked out on December 7 at 10am. It was about 3.30pm by the time we reached our hometown. That is the day she accused my brother of rape.
