The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has cleared India fast bowler Mohammed Shami’s central contract after its Anti-Corruption Unit (ACU) absolved him of corruption charges levelled by his wife Hasin Jahan.
“The Hon’ble Supreme Court of India appointed Committee of Administrators (CoA) had requested Mr Neeraj Kumar, former Police Commissioner of Delhi and Head of 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,” BCCI stated in a media release.
Shami has been given a Grade ‘B’ annual contract, which will make him richer by Rs 3 crore. He will also be free to play in the Indian Premier League, starting April 7, for his franchise the Delhi Daredevils.
Following the green light given by BCCI, a relieved Shami spoke exclusively to a national daily, ‘I always had full faith in the BCCI. I was waiting for this verdict and I’m happy they investigated the matter properly and the truth has now come out. I started training from last week and I am trying to prepare mentally after these hardships’
