New Delhi: While the Supreme Court-appointed Committee of Administrators (COA) have asked BCCI to probe match-fixing allegations against Mohammed Shami, the 27-year-old fast bowler is coming to Delhi by 4.30pm on Thursday.
The Committee of Administrators (CoA) led by chairman Vinod Rai has instructed the Board of Control for Cricket in India’s (BCCI) Anti-Corruption chief Neeraj Kumar to probe corruption allegations against Mohammed Shami on Wednesday.
Hasin Jahan claims that, Shami had taken money from a Pakistani woman named Alishba on the insistence of an England-based businessman Mohammad Bhai. Rai mentioned in his letter that CoA is only concerned about the portion of the audio recording in which the person who is claimed to be Shami says that he took money from Mohammad Bhai.
As Shami’s contract has been withheld by the BCCI after Jahan’s allegations, Rai then gives a seven-day deadline to Kumar to submit his report on the issue. The cricketer was accused of infidelity and domestic violence by his wife Hasin Jahan after which BCCI had put Shami’s central contract on hold.
On the other hand, the Kolkata Police has written a letter to the Board to inquire about his travel details after the last T20I match in South Africa.
